In a post Telegram mentioned, “2020 highlighted the need for face-to-face communication, and our alpha version of video calls is now available on both Android and iOS”. “Telegram has never advertised and every user has come to the app because of a recommendation from someone they trust. Strong principles and quality features speak for themselves, and millions of you listened. We’ve heard you as well, and will continue to develop features that make Telegram much more than just a messaging app”.

Video calling feature in Telegram works the same way as in other apps. The call is initiated by one person clicking the contact profile of another person. Telegram video calls also support picture-in-picture. This lets users scroll through chats and multi-task while on a call. One major feature here is, a video call can be turned off and On during a voice call. However, group video calling is not supported.
