Privacy-focused Telegram can share your location in real time

by John_A

Telegram is big on privacy, but that doesn’t mean you always want to keep things hush-hush — in fact, you may want to reveal exactly what you’re up to. Appropriately, the company just updated its Android and iOS apps with an option for live location sharing. Turn it on and everyone in a chat can see where you are in real time for as little as 15 minutes or as long as 8 hours. As you might imagine, that could be more than a little helpful if you’re meeting up with someone or want to know when your friends get home.

The Telegram team is also improving things for music fans and polyglots. The in-app media player has received an overhaul that includes better support for playing music files like MP3s. Also, language support in the interface is much better this time around, including timely support for Russian as well as French, Ukranian, Indonesian and Malay. Persian is also coming, Telegram says. In that sense, the biggest news surrounding Telegram may simply be that it’ll feel more at home for more people.
