Telegram is a social messaging app which is similar to Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp. In Telegram, there are many unique features which even WhatsApp doesn’t have it. But the certain feature which existed in WhatsApp does not exist in the Telegram app. Especially during this global pandemic period, many people have been using WhatsApp video calls most of the time to interact with their loved ones.
Finally, we can say that Telegram is also jumping on the bandwagon. We can say this is one of the most awaited features for Telegram.

But, in Telegram, as the user, you can easily verify whether your video call is encrypted by checking the four emojis in the top right corner with your chat partner. The best part is this happens in realtime. Telegram also confirms that it will be rolling out group video calls in the coming months.
To confirm your connection, compare the four emoji shown on-screen for you and your chat partner – if they match, your call is 100% secured by time-tested encryption also used in Telegram’s Secret Chats and Voice Calls.
Apart from that, to celebrate its 7th anniversary, Telegram also added more animated emojis. If you have watched the Emoji movie before, then you know what we are talking about.
