Telegram added support for video and voice calling a few months back. However, the platform doesn’t yet offer support for group video calls. The company promised that it will enable the group video call feature in the coming months. The good thing is Telegram supports Picture-in-Picture (PiP) mode, which will help users check messages or use other apps without interrupting the ongoing call.
The company says that all the calls are protected with end-to-end encryption, so users don’t need to worry about security. The web version of Telegram is yet to offer support for video or voice call function. Do note that there is no option to directly place a video call from the desktop version. Additionally, the call option in the mobile version of Telegram is not immediately visible when you open a chat. If you have been wondering how to make a video or voice call on Telegram, then keep reading to know the steps.
