A new feature from Telegram rivals Clubhouse
Clubhouse’s voice chat app has gained popularity among social media apps in recent times, and because of this popularity, some social media apps have begun to offer new features or services to their users similar to the new app, such as Telegram, which has introduced voice conversations in channels, Twitter Spaces, and more.
The voice chat feature first appeared in Telegram groups in December 2020, adding a new dimension to live voice chat in groups, allowing users to convert any group of subscribers into a group chat room that is always open, and group members can join and leave as they wish.
Voice conversations, along with messaging tools, act as virtual spaces for employees or as a place where any topic can be easily discussed with others.
First, new features in Telegram’s audio conversations:
After the spread of clubhouse over the past months, Telegram launched on March 19th the feature of voice conversations in the channels as well and limitlessly on the number of participants.
Now, channel moderators and public groups can broadcast voice conversations to millions of listeners, and new people will be able to join the conversations regardless of the number of current listeners.
This update also added the possibility of recording voice conversations, improved participant lists, hand-raising to speak, inviting links for listeners and speakers, audio conversation titles and the ability of famous characters to join voice conversations on their channels, providing a clubhouse-like experience.
Second, how to create a voice conversation in Telegram groups or channels:
- Go to the Telegram app on your phone.
- Open the group or channel in which you want to start a voice conversation, but you must be admin in it
- Click on the image of the group or channel that appears in the upper left corner, then press the (⋮) icon in the upper right corner to access the group options.
- Click on the Start Voice chat option.
- Click on continue, then add an address to chat, and send invitations to members who can talk to you.
The new voice chat update offers new options that allow group or channel administrators to better control the conversation, while keeping users muted until it’s their turn to talk.
Telegram has also copied one of clubhouse’s features, the ability to raise hands to indicate chat supervisors wanting to talk. The profile of the person who raises his hand will appear on the list of participants, which can be used to learn about his experiences and interests, which will help supervisors select the right person to comment and ask questions in the voice conversation.
Thirdly, how do you join a talk in Telegram?
When you join a voice conversation on a channel, users will be able to join their personal accounts or join one of their channels, where celebrities and public figures can take advantage of this feature to avoid attracting attention to their personal accounts.
The Telegram app has also made it easy to send voice chat links, where owners of public or private channels can now create unique links that open voice chat directly, rather than just an invitation to a channel where a conversation takes place.
Fourth: Can audio conversations be recorded in Telegram:
Updates obtained by the live voice chat feature in the Telegram app include the possibility of recording voice conversations, where the administrator can post the recording later in groups or Channels of Telegram for those who missed the dialogue.
To protect privacy, a red light will be displayed alongside any participant who records the conversation, helping you track the person recording the conversation.
