Telegram rolls out one-on-one video calls

Telegram has introduced one-on-one video calls which are end-to-end encrypted and secure.

Telegram has rolled out a video calling feature for all users.

It can be accessed through App Store or Play Store.

Only one-on-one video calls are available as of now with group video calls to be rolled out soon.


Telegram has rolled out an end-to-end encrypted video calling feature for Android and iOS in its alpha version. The cloud-based messaging system brought out the feature shortly after it was made available in the beta version. However, in the beta version, it was not available through PlayStore and the process was a little tedious as users had to access it through the App Page of Telegram.

The latest alpha version enables all users to access the video calling feature. The one-on-one video calling feature can be accessed by all users through PlayStore or App Store. If it is not immediately available, users should update the app to see the feature.

"2020 highlighted the need for face-to-face communication, and our alpha version of video calls is now available on both Android and iOS," Telegram noted in its blog post.

So, how can users make video calls using Telegram?

It is the same as making an audio call on Telegram. Once users make an active audio call, the video option appears in the call which users can now enable.

Users have to follow these steps to make a call on Telegram:

--Open the Telegram app.

--Go to the profile page or click on the three lines on the left-hand side.

--Click on the Calls option from a left-hand side window.

--Choose the contact to which call has to be made.

--Once the call is active, users can switch to the video mode.

Alternatively, users can go to the chat of the contact to which they want to make a video call. Then click on the three dots on the right-hand side, and choose the option to video call.

Telegram noted that the video calls also enable the picture-in-picture option so that users can multitask while being active on the video calls. As of now, the video calling feature is only available for one-on-one video calls but it will soon be made available to group video calls, Telegram noted. Telegram further asserted that video calls are end-to-end encrypted and secure.

"All video calls are protected with end-to-end encryption. To confirm your connection, compare the four emoji shown on-screen for you and your chat partner if they match, your call is 100 per cent secured by time-tested encryption also used in Telegram's Secret Chats and Voice Calls," Telegram noted.

The feature marks its presence on Telegram as the app becomes seven years old. "In 2013, we began as a small app focused on secure messaging and have since grown into a platform with over 400M users. Telegram is now one of the top 10 most-downloaded apps and is used all over the world," Telegram noted. Telegram launched its voice calling feature called Telegram Calls in 2017.
