Supergroups 10,000: Admin Tools & More Massive Supergroups with 10K members, member search, flexible admin rights, temporary bans, admin log, and more
Supergroups can now have up to 10,000 members! We've added members search to supergroups to help you find people in these newly massive haystacks.

Admins also get new tools for managing the increasing group populations: creators can appoint admins with granular rights (add members, remove members, add new admins, etc.). We've also added partial restrictions for members (read-only, no stickers etc.) and temporary bans.

The new event log (admin-only) will help you see all service actions taken by members and admins of a channel or supergroup in the last 48 hours – with search and filters.

On top of this, we've added improved sharing to our iOS app, Android pay support to our Android app and many smaller quality-of-life improvements throughout.

If you lost your stickers for a few minutes, don't worry! They're all back now.

If you still don't see them, this may be related to caching — reloading the app will help. Alternatively, just add a new pack. Try this one:

Don't Shoot the Messenger In the aftermath of a recent terror attack, government officials all over the world renewed their calls for backdoors in end-to-end encrypted messaging apps. At the same time, journalists made the usual heap of mistakes in their coverage. Thanks to these mistakes, I got many questions from surprised Telegram users. So let's set a few things straight. How is my Telegram data protected? Telegram's Secret Chats use end-to-end encryption, which means that nobody, including Telegram, can decipher the data…
Terrorists are after your fear – and the media are glad to help them. Don't give in!

You can't stop newspapers from spreading the terrorists' message far and wide, but at least you can report public terrorist content on Telegram (in the unlikely event you ever see it).
