Telegram offers users the ability to send files of any type, no matter how big or small. You can send photos, videos, PDFs, and even zip archives. Today we are going to talk about some recent changes we’ve made to the way Telegram handles sending files.
File sending is a really important part of Telegram
The file range for sending files has been expanded significantly, from 2MB to 50MB in size (the minimum remains at 64k). And we’ve also added support for uncompressed archives with .zip, .gz and .bz2 extensions — so if you’re a Giphy user, you can enjoy your GIFs as they were meant to be seen: in their full glory!
You can share your favorite videos with friends by dragging them into the chat window or attaching them via the “Send File…” button in the right-click menu.
The way these files are sent and received has also been improved: when you click on the “Send File…” button your computer will begin downloading all necessary information about a file before it sends this data over an Internet connection so that the recipient will not need any additional resources (like a torrent client) just to download video from YouTube or Dropbox account.
Add more kinds of files to existing files and other short content support
We have added more kinds of files to the existing support of files and other short content that can be sent. Now you can send your audio, video, and documents.
The range of sizes for these files has also been expanded
The range of sizes for these files has also been expanded. The maximum size is no longer 10 MB, but 1 GB. This means that you can send very large documents and photos in your chats on Telegram.
Improved the way of sending and receiving these files
As part of this update, we’ve made several improvements to the way Telegram send and receives files.
-Uploading large files is now faster. We’ve optimized our servers to use fewer CPU cycles per byte, so you can now send files up to 1.5 GB in size.
-Receiving files is also much faster: we’ve switched from polling for notifications about incoming messages to using an asynchronous notification system that allows us to handle them as soon as they arrive on our end, regardless of how busy your phone or tablet may be at the time. This means that if you receive a .png file over 1 MB in size from your friend Bob and then open it without any other apps running (like Skype), it will open almost instantly on your device instead of waiting for several minutes like before!
All of this means more flexibility for you to send the right file, whether it’s a full-length movie or just a few seconds of footage. And if your friends don’t have Telegram(电报汉化) yet? Don’t worry! They’ll be able to receive any kind of file that you send them in their phone’s default app.
