Telegram set foot in the New Year by offering its users a pristine update. Telegram for Android adds multiple accounts support, while its iOS counterpart brings four different themes and a variety of accent colors. The app adds quick replies on iOS and Android as well.
Talking about the multiple accounts support on the updated Telegram app, you can now add up to three accounts with different phone numbers. No need to own three distinct Android smartphones to operate any of the distinguished accounts. The instant messaging app allows you to quickly switch between the added accounts by using the side menu to send messages from any specific mobile number. However, notifications will be available from all accounts by default, though you can change it by navigating through the Notifications Settings. In this way, you can use multiple accounts on Android.
Earlier, you had to either use parallel apps or do app cloning to access multiple accounts on Telegram. But now, the app’s multiple accounts support can prove very useful for those folks who’re using two or more mobile numbers. Also, it enables users to easily login between different Telegram accounts.

Apart from the multiple accounts support on Android, the latest version of Telegram for iOS comes with the relevant options letting you change the look of the app. All you need to do is simply go to the Appearance Settings and then opt for any of the available four themes, including a minimalistic ‘Day’ theme and two dark themes namely ‘Night’ and ‘Night Blue’. What’s more, you can change the view of the Day theme by choosing a suitable accent color for the entire app.
In order to give a tough competition to WhatsApp, the team at Telegram has even added support for quick replies on both Android and iOS devices. To quick reply to a message with a text, sticker, emoji or GIF, you need to swipe left on that message in a chat. The app also offers different font sizes for your messages.
The latest update of the app comes weeks after the Telegram v4.6 that introduced features such as better link previews, enhanced security, auto-downloading media, albums in Secret Chats, as well as embeds for messages from public groups and channels.
All the aforementioned features are available in Telegram v4.7 that can be downloaded from Google Play Store and App Store. Why waiting? If Telegram is your chat app of choice, update it now and try your hands on the brand new features to take your messaging experience to the next level.
