In a video call, users who are not on Telegram beta 7.8 will only hear the audio and will not be able to see you or the screen you share.
The Durov brothers' messaging app continues to improve its functionalities in order to steal users from its most direct competitor, WhatsApp, and one of the characteristics in which it is at a disadvantage are video calls.
But that will be for a short time because Telegram already allows make group video calls and share your screen with other users in its latest beta version.
Telegram group video calls will reach the whole world very soon
As the guys from Android tell us Police Telegram has already enabled so much group video calls like screen sharing with other people in the latest beta version of your app for Android, 7.8.
After announcing, recently, that group video calls would reach Telegram, now we can confirm they are available in beta 7.8. Its operation is the same as that we saw at the time, since We can only start a video call from a voice chat.
In this way, any of us who participate in a voice chat can start a video stream or share your screen. but for this to be possible the title of the voice chat must include the hashtag #vine.
Once the voice chat has started, we will find the button to activate the front camera of our terminal on the left side, just where the button to activate the loudspeaker appeared before, and once we press it, we can start a video call with several people, accessing a preview before you start sharing your video.
The second great novelty of this update is that we will also be able to share our screen with other people during a video call and for this, we will only have to click on the menu button with an icon of three vertical dots located in the upper right and select option Share screen or Share screen. Once this is done, a notice will appear that will tell us that Telegram will start to capture everything that shows on our screen.
Of course, we must bear in mind that, in a video call, users who are not in the beta 7.8 of Telegram they will only hear the audio and they won't be able to see us or the screen we're sharing.
These new Telegram features expected to reach worldwide soon via stable release, but if you can't wait to try them, we leave you a link below these lines to a Channel of the messaging application itself from which you can easily download Telegram beta 7.8 for Android.
