You can now publish articles with chat app Telegram

Telegram iOS

If the hassle of signing up for a publishing platform like Medium or WordPress is what has kept you from publishing your work online — instead of something like the crippling fear of rejection or self-loathing that comes with being a writer — and you just so happen to have Telegram installed on your smartphone, then the good news is that it’s never been easier and faster to post your weight loss manifesto online.

The popular chat has launched a new feature called Telegraph. Available starting today, Telegraph allows users to write articles right within Telegram while making it easy to embed content like photos, YouTube videos and more inside one’s work.

That’s not all, however. Telegram has also updated its standard app with several new features. Most notably, Medium Posts or articles from TechCrunch will now load natively within Telegram, ensuring that, in much the same way that Facebook Instant Articles work, articles load instantly.   

Androids users also get access to a new interface, as well improved photo and video capabilities and a host of other improvements. Telegram is also teasing that “something big” is coming to the app.

Download Telegram from the iTunes App Store or Google Play Store.
