Temporary messages or messages that are destroyed over time are one of the key functions of Telegram. Basically they are messages that once reach their recipient, are automatically deleted after a period of time.

Well, now the administrators of a group can make all the messages of the chat are deleted after the time that they mark. The timer can be set for 24 hours or 7 days.

The latest feature available in beta 7.5 allows group admins turn a normal group into a broadcast group. For those who do not know the difference, normal chat groups "only" can have 200,000 members maximum while there is no limit on broadcast groups.

Also, in broadcast groups only administrators can post messages. Keep in mind that once a chat has been converted to broadcast there is no going back.

As we have said before these new functions are available in beta version 7.5 of Telegram. This means that they are still in test so no we know when they will reach the official version of the Play Store. Telegram is a totally free messaging application and possibly the best alternative to WhatsApp.
