Pinned Messages 2.0, Improved Live Locations, Playlists and More

Halloween is just around the corner and we’ve assembled choice tools to help organize your trick-or-treating. Practice your voodoo skills with multiple pinned messages in every chat, watch out for other zombies on the block with Live Locations 2.0, put your eerie music into Playlists, and more.

I feel like telegram has been putting it’s attention to user experience and making this nice, snappy and useful, more than making the app more secure or whatnot.

I feel like small things like the playlists, or channels and comments on the posts are things that are super useful, and are, over time, a ton of little arguments that win people over. Instead of having a “killer feature”, they have lots and lots of little nice things.

I like that now the “view replies” button has been enabled in group chats that do not have a linked channel, but it’s a bit sad that the “view thread” option isn’t always available, probably in an attempt to keep the message menu short to not overwhelm users. Now in a group with friends, to open the “thread view”, I have to jump through all the replies until I find the root message :( still, I find this new option really useful

I think Lemmy mainly attracts people with a tech background, which are more likely to be conscious about themes such as privacy and security. Telegram doesn’t offer e2e encryption by default, which is deemed as the very bare minimum for a messaging app that markets privacy and security as its selling points. So yeah, Telegram isn’t really seen by privacy-aware people as something they would use or suggest to their circles - there’s people that downvotes everything that contains the word “Telegram” in its title. We definitely have some on Lemmy
