Telegram Prevents Users from Sending too many Messages in Groups
The new function of chat app Telegram with the name Slow Mode ensures that users cannot send messages to a group too often.
Group administrators can activate Slow Mode and determine how long a user must wait to send another message. The time intervals vary from thirty seconds to an hour.
The function is intended to keep group discussions organized. A group on Telegram can contain 200,000 users, while on WhatsApp only 256 users are allowed per group.
In addition to the Slow Mode, a function has also been rolled out to send messages without the receiver hears a sound. The receiver will receive a notification as usual, but without a sound or vibration. This is the case even if the telephone is not on still.
Other new features include animated emojis, a night mode for iOS, and the ability for administrators to choose a different title than “admin.”
