Telegram 4.1 brings improved iOS sharing experience and Android Pay support

Telegram has released version 4.1 of the app for iOS and Android with a bunch of new features.

On iOS, users will now get an improved experience while sharing from other apps. You can now add a comment while sharing and then share to more than one contact at once. You also get additional options when you 3D touch on the icon, including taking a picture or video and sending it to contacts without opening the app.

On Android, you can now use Android Pay to pay for bot payments. The app also shows photos and videos together while sharing them through the app.

Other big feature is for supergroup users. Supergroups can now have up to 10,000 users. Admins now have more granular controls, including selecting what other admins can do within the group, prevent certain users from performing certain tasks like sending messages, media, stickers, etc. within the group, and seeing what other admins have been up to in Recent Actions in the admins page.

Telegram also added an option to set up your own proxy server as an anti-censorship tool.

The desktop apps have also been updated to reflect these changes.
