Here's how the new message search works:
The new emoji shortcut is particularly handy on desktops, but can also help to quickly locate obscure emoji on your mobile. :sunglasses :

We saw some groups approach the 20K limit and increased it again. Telegram groups can now have up to 30,000 members.
Meet Telegram 4.5! You can now group photos and videos into albums when sending — and control the order in which your media will be sent.

Store any important messages or media by sending or forwarding them to the Saved Messages chat. Each saved message has a “go to” button that takes you to the right place in the original chat.

We've also improved username search to make it easier to find popular bots and channels, added support for pinned messages in channels, and redesigned the Settings screens on iOS. iOS users also get full support for iPhone X.

Telegram v.4.6 is here! You can now set up your auto-download preferences with granular precision (find the new options in Settings > Data & Storage). For example, always download pictures from your mother on any connection, but only auto-download media from groups when you're on WiFi.

iOS users will enjoy the new option to swipe left on any message to quickly reply to it.

For everyone else, we've also added support for albums to Secret chats, full support for MTProto 2.0, and the option to only use p2p in calls with contacts (see Settings > Privacy & Security).

Link previews for Instagram posts and tweets with multiple photos will now show all the media as an album, like this:
Bonus track. An embeddable HTML-widget is now available for all messages in public groups and channels. You can see it when you open links to such messages in your browser – try this with t.me/telegram/81.

Below the widget is a button that reveals the code to embed it on any website. Journalists quoting Telegram channel posts in their articles are going to love this.

Attention: Telegram publishes its official announcements only at telegram.org ✈️

If you see any other website that claims to publish news or announcements on behalf of our team, it is most likely a scam.
We have increased the member limit for supergroups to 100,000.

If you're looking to get more users in your community, the best strategy is to open a channel on Telegram. Channels are the perfect tool for broadcasting your messages to the masses because they can have an unlimited number of subscribers.

With channels, you can broadcast important announcements to millions of people or post answers to the most popular questions from members of your supergroups.

See this post for more info on channels:
