Telegram Expands Platform Availability with Launch of visionOS App for Apple Vision Pro
Popular messaging app, Telegram, is expanding its platform availability with the launch of a new visionOS app for Apple Vision Pro. The announcement was made by Telegram CEO, Pavel Durov, who shared a teaser showcasing how the app will look on the Apple device.
The visionOS app will adhere to all visionOS design guidelines, providing users with a seamless and immersive experience on the Apple Vision Pro. One of the key features of the app is its translucent design, which adds a sense of depth to the user interface. This design choice aims to enhance the overall user experience when using Telegram on the Vision Pro device.
The app’s user interface is also unique, as it replaces the traditional tab bar with a sidebar. This sidebar provides quick and easy access to contacts, calls, chats, and settings. Users will have all the same features available in Telegram for iOS, including media sharing, audio messages, and Stories.
The teaser also highlighted an exciting addition to the Telegram app on Vision Pro – an immersive video player and animated AR stickers that can fill the entire view. This groundbreaking feature breaks the boundaries of the app window and offers users a more enhanced and interactive messaging experience.
In terms of messaging capabilities, users will be able to send messages through Siri dictation or the system’s virtual keyboard, making communication even more convenient.
The launch of the Telegram visionOS app is expected to coincide with the release of the highly anticipated Apple Vision Pro, which is scheduled to hit US stores in early 2024. This will allow users to seamlessly integrate Telegram into their new Vision Pro devices from day one.
For developers interested in building apps for the Apple Vision Pro, they can access the visionOS SDK to start creating innovative and exciting experiences for users.
Telegram for iOS is already available for free on the App Store, and with the launch of the visionOS app, even more users will be able to enjoy the seamless messaging experience Telegram offers.
As Telegram continues to expand its platform availability, users can expect more exciting updates and features in the future, ensuring they stay connected with their loved ones and communities.
