LAGOS, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA) – Telegram CEO, Pavel Durov, has announced the arrival of “Stories” feature on the channel and it will be available in early July.
He claimed that despite the company’s hesitation to launch Stories because they have become a standard feature on many platforms, it ultimately chose to give in to the repeated requests for this feature from its users.
The ability to save your stories will improve the informational and aesthetic appeal of Telegram profiles.
With the help of this tool, you may explore more of the content that your close friends and family share and learn interesting facts about the people you converse with in groups or channel comments.
In addition, channels will get greater attention and draw in additional subscribers.
Getting popular on Telegram will be much easier with the new functionality that lets users repost messages from channels to tales.
Even the naysayers inside the Telegram team started to see and value the importance of this feature, he said, after running internal testing on Stories.
According to Durov, Stories will launch in the first week of July after completing their final round of testing.
He thinks that this momentous change will usher in a new age for Telegram and make the app even more fun and social than it now is.
Instagram and Facebook added Stories in 2016 and 2017, respectively, while Snapchat debuted the feature in 2013.
