Among these, for example, Android users can now move data from their Telegram app from internal device memory to SD card. Or, for iOS device users, the ability to have Siri read the incoming messages aloud in the earphones.

A few days ago Telegram founder Pavel Durov announced his strategy to make the popular messaging app sustainable.
