Telegram allows you to send video messages
The main feature added in this new update is support for video messages. Now, with version 4.0 Telegram users can send video messages in two different ways: using the microphone icon which now allows us to switch to a camera mode. From there we simply press to record our video or if we slide up we can record in hands free mode.
