Telegram Messenger on Monday launched significant updates to its application with features like Topics in Groups and Collectible Usernames to enhance the user chat experience.

In addition, the platform offers voice-to-text for video messages with dozens of new emoji packs for premium users, according to the company.

“I feel particularly excited about today’s Telegram update. It adds topics to large groups, transforming these linear chats into slick mobile-friendly versions of good old Internet Forums,” Pavel Durov, Telegram’s CEO and Founder, said in a statement.

“Topics today come packed with lots of features, including the ability to close and pin topics, flexible notification options and lots of fun animated emoji to be used as topic icons. Taking advantage of the two-week delay caused by Apple’s review, we have begun to expand these new threaded groups into something even more powerful,” Durov added.
