Telegram has released a new version: registration without a SIM card, auto-delete chats and much more

9 January 2023 0 By georgedeveloper22

Telegram is currently one of the most popular instant messengers in the world. Moreover, lately it has become more and more like a social network, where you can find all the necessary information, from news to some entertaining videos and pictures. With a large number of already existing functions, the application does not look overloaded, and it is, as before, a pleasure to use. The most interesting thing is that the developers do not stop there and continue to improve the program.

The new update adds interesting features to Telegram.

In yesterday’s update, it became possible to register in Telegram without a SIM card, filter out spam more efficiently, set up automatic deletion of chats, and even determine how much space each chat takes up in the smartphone’s memory. We understand what else is new in Telegram and how new functions work.

Telegram without phone number

The most important innovation of this version of Telegram should be called the possibility of registering in a messenger without a SIM card . To do this, you need to purchase a special anonymous phone number on the Fragment platform , where usernames are sold. It is not tied to a SIM card, therefore, it will be impossible to establish your identity. As indicated on the website of the Fragment site, you will not be able to use these numbers outside of Telegram. You can read more about the process of buying anonymous numbers in our material.

The cost of numbers, as well as usernames, is different. You can buy a beautiful number +8888888 for 31,500 TON, or you can buy something simpler, like +88807240724 for 12 TON. The cost of one TON is currently $1.82. If you do not chase the beauty of the number and anonymity is important to you, then this is a viable option.
Any random number costs 9 TON or $16. And it’s a fixed price. For more or less beautiful numbers, an auction is held and the cost may increase.

Auto-delete chats in Telegram

Now Telegram supports setting up auto-delete of all chats. If you are used to clearing messages and not storing them on your smartphone, then this feature will definitely come in handy. It works like this:

  • 1. Open Telegram and click on the three bars in the upper left corner.
  • 2. Select “Settings” and go to the “Privacy” section.
  • 3. In the “Security” block, find “Auto-delete messages” and set the desired timer.
  • 4. If you want to configure auto-delete for old chats, then here click “Apply to previously created chats” and check those
  • 5. where messages need to be cleared.

Now you don’t have to do it all manually. Telegram itself will clear your chats after a specified time, which will save space on your smartphone.

Additional tools have also appeared for working with the repository. If you go to the “Memory Usage” section, you can see how much space each chat or channel takes up. In this way, you can determine at any time what needs to be cleaned first. Users have been asking for this opportunity for a long time, because to find out
in which chat the heaviest files are stored, without such a breakdown it was very difficult. Fortunately, Telegram understood this and provided the appropriate tools.

Telegram – new version

The new version of Telegram for Android received the number 9.2.0. You can download it, as usual, from Google Play. The app is available there. If for some reason you cannot download it from the Google store, then it is available for download as an apk file from here.
To install, you can use our detailed instructions for updating applications on Android.

However, these are not all the innovations that have appeared in the messenger. It’s just that for many users, the ones mentioned above will become the most noticeable. Other new features include:

  • Active anti-spam filter for groups.
  • Spam protection is now supported in large groups. When activated, the algorithms will automatically screen out messages from spammers.
  • Temporary QR codes. Users who have disabled search by number and have not provided a username can now generate a QR code with a link to their account.
  • There are new emoji sets for Premium-
  • users.
  • Interactive emojis and reactions have received new animation options.
  • Groups with more than 100 members can create Topics 2.0. They have convenient navigation and the transition to the latest message directly from the list of chats. This will allow people to more conveniently communicate in a specific topic and immediately open the most recent messages.

As you can see, Telegram is developing and doing it very well. All innovations will obviously be in demand by users. From everything that appeared in the application today, I personally was not interested in registering in Telegram without a SIM card. But this does not mean at all that it will not be useful to anyone else.
Surely there will be those who want to take advantage of this opportunity. And even new animations for emoji and reactions will make communication more lively and interesting.

Thank you for attention!
