Auto-Delete Messages
Some conversations aren't meant to last forever, which is why Telegram users can delete messages for all participants in a conversation at any time, without a trace.

Since 2013, users can also set a self-destruct timer for messages in Secret Chats.

Starting today, you can enable an auto-delete timer in all Telegram chats, which will automatically erase messages for all participants either 24 hours or 7 days after sending.

Expiring Invite Links
Invite links are a quick and easy way to bring 1 or 1 million people to your groups and channels. Along with the main invite link, owners and admins can now create additional links with a limited duration, number of uses, or both.

Any invite link can be converted into a scannable QR Code to put on everything from brochures to billboards. You can also see which users joined using each invite link to find out where new members came from or which format has been most effective for growth.
Groups with Unlimited Members
Telegram groups allow up to 200,000 members to exchange messages, media and stickers. Groups that are close to the limit can now convert into Broadcast Groups that allow unlimited members.

It's always been there for me.. You can also Archive chats which moves the chat to the "Un read tab", so if the chat is muted and Archived then you won't get irritating notifications like what you get on whatsapp. I do this for all unimportant chats/groups that I don't need to see immediately.

I'm gonna change my message tones to the Mission Impossible theme.

"This message will self-destruct in 10 seconds"

Tried that already but then @The_Donkey and @Cr4ig and @The_Mowgs message me from other peoples phones
I don't recall ever talking to you on Telegram. Only on WhatsApp.

About those unlimited number of people in a group feature. That is just plain stupid.

I was in some cryptocurrency group with 1 700 odd people and in one day there were 6 000 messages sent.

I left. **** that!
