The popular chat app Telegram Messenger has been updated for Windows 10 Mobile. It adds support for mini-games that can be played with other Telegram users.

While the app's change log has not yet been updated Microsoftinsider.es says the mini-games can be activated by typing in "@gamebot" in chats. There are two arcade games and one brain game available inside the app. The update also offers a list of the app's bots in the channel menu.

  • Hope so, I have to mute all the massive furry groups cause they make my phone explode, lol
  • Furry? lol
  • Yeah, it's basically /the/ social messaging app for furries. Because of It's free sticker functionality, many furries get their character commissioned in sticker packs, the best of which become popular in chats with others. SFW sample of stickers/sheet:
