How to Hide Your Last Seen Timestamp in Telegram on iPhone

Telegram has grown over the years to become a very popular social messaging app. Apart from being more secure, it offers exciting features that are missing from WhatsApp and other apps, such as stickers, GIFs, channels, bots, and much more.

With telegram, you can send and receive messages, photos, videos, and files, as well as place a voice call. Telegram also has a read receipts feature which shows a double tick next to messages which have been read by the other person. Unfortunately, you cannot disable read receipts in Telegram, but there is a way to hide your last seen status so that no one knows when you ignore their messages.

Telegram introduces payment via chatbots

Telegram, the international messenger launched by Pavel Durov in 2013, is now bringing support for payments via chatbots,  nearly two years after introducing them.

“Imagine a world where you can order pizza, pay for a pair of shoes, hire a cab, or refill your subway pass — all in a few button taps on Telegram,” suggests Telegram to promote the new service.

Thus online merchants can now add the new functionality to any Telegram Bot. They may customize the Bot and change the ordering script in order to specify the delivery time, ask for a phone number, offer a discount on a customer’s birthday, or other marketing purposes. The bot developer can choose between all available payment providers, selecting the one already used by the buyer or another one with a lower commission.

Xiaomi Mi 6 review

Article Contents

Xiaomi has an interesting history that I recommend you read up on if you don’t already know it. The company, while known to mostly enthusiasts here in the States, has a huge presence in its homeland China, as well as India and other parts of Southeast Asia.
