Telegram has remade its mobile app for Android, giving it a new look, and adding features, like the ability to archive chats…

The latest version of Telegram for Android holds a few changes. It includes a redesign of the experience and a new chat archiving feature.

Android Telegram App Refresh includes Archived Chats

The new Telegram for Android chat archive tool works by swiping left on a conversation. If a particular conversation continues, users will receive notifications of new messages. It will also return the conversation to the chat list.

Additionally, users can hide archived chats from the folder with a left swipe. Hidden messages appear when users drag down on the screen. Also, users can pin archived chats to place them in a custom order.

The redesign changes the appearance, which users will recognize when opening the app after it updates.

There’s also changes under the hood. These include a “more stylish” and “more functional” message selection feature. Also, there’s a new quick message forwarding button, accessible by tapping and holding on a message.

Telegram expanded its chat list option in the Chat settings, as well. It gives users the power to see up to three lines at once, instead of only two in the chat list view.
