What you need to know

  • Telegram now supports snap layouts on Windows 11.
  • The same update also adds animated reactions to the desktop version of Telegram.
  • Telegram version 3.4.8 is available now through the Microsoft Store.

Windows 11 has a snap assist feature that allows you to pop windows into a variety of layouts. This improves upon the snapping capabilities of Windows 10 and makes it easier to manage where windows are on your screen and how they're displayed. Now, the Telegram desktop app supports snapping on Windows 11.

The change comes with Telegram version 3.4.8, which recently rolled out to the Microsoft Store. The update also includes the usual range of bug fixes. Additionally, the latest version of Telegram for Windows supports animated reactions.

Here's the complete changelog for Telegram version 3.4.8:

  • Beautifully animated reactions.
  • Support for snap layouts on Windows 11.
  • Bug fixes and two bowls of miso soup.

Unfortunately, the two bowls of miso soup mentioned in the changelog appear to be a joke. We downloaded the latest version of Telegram and did not receive any soup.
