Telegram adds new Channels feature in latest update

Secure messaging app Telegram has scored an update today that, while small, brings along a new feature: Channels. The Channels feature acts as a replacement for the Broadcast lists feature, and the Telegram team says it is "better in every way." Here's the official word from the changelog:

  • Introducing Channels — a great new way to broadcast your messages to unlimited audiences

The Telegram team goes into more depth in a blog post, stating that Channels allow you to send a message out to a broad audience in one go. Each channel has its own permanent URL and each post has a view counter. New users that are added to a Channel will also be able to check out the entire message history of a channel once they have joined.
