We've updated our apps with new cache management options so that Telegram can take up nearly zero space on your phone, even if you‘re using it heavily.

In other news, you can now manually reorder your sticker packs, and the order will be synced across all your devices. This can be done in Sticker Settings, accessible via the new button in the sticker panel (or via Settings).

On Android and Desktop, tap/click and hold on a pack to drag it to its new place. On iOS, tap 'Edit' first. Manual reordering is coming to all other official apps within a day.

If you're looking for more sticker packs to reorder, try marching Vicky and Harry up and down your stickers list:

Today's update to our iOS, Android and Desktop apps brings you faster and better GIFs along with a new type of bots. The Windows Phone and OSX native clients will be getting this update soon as well.

GIF Revolution

Animations will now become up to 20x faster when sending and downloading. GIFs will play automatically in your chats (this can be turned off in Settings). We've also added a dedicated GIF tab to the sticker panel. Tap on a GIF (long tap on iOS) to save it to the panel – then send it to friends in just a few taps.

Inline Bots

You can now easily send bot-generated content to any chat, group or channel – even if the bot is not a member. Simply type the @username of an inline bot in the message field in any chat, then type some keywords. The bot will offer you relevant content that you can send in one tap.

Sample inline bots:
@gif – Search and send animated GIFs
@vid – Quickly share YouTube videos
@bing – Find pictures using Bing
@pic – Find pictures using Yandex
@wiki – Share Wikipedia articles
@imdb – Find and share movie details
@bold – Send bold, italic or fixed width text
Enjoy!

Here's how your chats list will look in Telegram for iOS v.3.10 with a couple of Drafts and a video running in PiP mode.
Telegram for iOS was updated to version 3.10.1 today.

Picture in Picture is now available not just for YouTube and Vimeo videos, but for all videos in Telegram.

Chat preview (formerly only with 3D Touch) is now available for all iOS devices. Simply tap and hold on a chat to preview without opening.

We've also made a few minor improvements and fixed a couple of bugs. The app will no longer crash when sending videos to channels, and if you've seen an indestructible empty chat in the list, it will go away now (try terminating and restarting the app if it lingers).

Stay tuned for more updates on all platforms.
