The new Telegram Messenger app brings lots of amazing new features to its iPhone and iPad apps, among which are a new download manager, a revised attachment menu, support for live streaming with third-party applications, and more.
According to the release blog post, Telegram users are allowed to share files of any sort, up to 2GB apiece, and view them from any device, with no restriction on cloud storage, which has made downloading files increasingly popular on the network.
To that aim, while files are currently downloading, a new icon now displays in the search bar that users can press to see and control downloads, stop and restart all downloads or just specific things, and choose one to boost its priority or view it in a conversation.
Meanwhile, a fully revamped attachment menu displays when sharing numerous photographs or videos. Users may press “X chose” (X being the number of things) at the top of the panel to preview how the album will appear in the conversation when it’s shared, as well as rearrange or delete selected media.
Elsewhere, version 8.6 of Telegram merges the in-app camera option into the gallery, while a new navigation bar allows easy access to photographs, files, location sharing, and more.
Also in the recent version is the opportunity for users to establish a unique @username from the Settings page, giving others an easy method to reach them through search or their t.me/username link without disclosing their phone number.
In addition, Telegram now enables the use of third-party streaming tools like OBS Studio and XSplit to broadcast live video, enabling users to create overlays and multi-screen layouts for a more professional appearance.

For users who are yet to upgrade to the latest and improved version, simply download it below or from the Apple app store.
