We’ve made it easier to use Telegram(Telegram下载) on your phone, even if you haven’t got much free space there. Cloud Chat 2.0, with faster sending and receiving of media, has been rolled out across all platforms. We’re also making it easier to free up space on your phone with the new built-in storage manager, which lets you clear cache for chats and channels separately. You can also clear your entire storage — even if you’ve downloaded a lot of media — in the blink of an eye.
It’s easier to use telegram on your phone
-How to clear cache for chats and channels
To clear the cache, go to your Telegram settings. Tap Chat, then tap Storage. You’ll see a list of all your Chats and Channels that take up space on Telegram’s servers. To clear the cache, tap Clear cache here (it will only be visible if there is any).
-How to clear your entire storage
You can also choose to delete all data from Telegram’s server by tapping on Clear storage here (it will only be visible if there is any). This means that when you restart your app after clearing your storage, it will download everything from scratch again from our servers – including photos and videos sent through Secret Chats as well as other media files attached in public messages.
Faster media sending and receiving
Cloud Chat 2.0, with faster sending and receiving of media on all platforms, has been rolled out across all platforms (mobile apps, desktop apps, and web version).
If you’re an iOS user who uses the Telegram iOS app v.3.3 or later, you will see an upgrade to Cloud Chat 2.0 in the coming days if your phone supports it. If not – no worries! The new experience will still be available to you later this year when our team releases updates for Android and Windows Phone devices as well.
The new built-in storage manager makes it easier to save space on your phone
You can now clear the cache for individual chats and channels, separately. Just tap on the three-dot menu in a chat or a channel, select “Clear Cache”, and choose what you want to delete (Media, Files, and Photos/Videos).
We’ve also made it possible to clear the cache for all chats and channels at once by selecting “Clear All” from your Storage Settings.
This is the latest in a series of improvements to Telegram’s storage management tools. Earlier this month, we launched an updated media viewer that allows you to quickly clear cached files with just one tap.
You can clear the entire storage in the blink of an eye
You can also clear your entire storage — even if you’ve downloaded a lot of media — in the blink of an eye.
-Clear chat history: Clears all messages on Telegram, including ones that were deleted.
-Clear media cache: Clears all downloaded media (images, videos, and audio files). This works whether the download was successful or failed; it’s a great option if you don’t want to delete anything from your device but still want to free up space.
– Clear media cache for a specific chat: Deletes cached images/videos/audio files for specific chats only. Useful when you are not able to clear downloads on other chats because they became corrupted or lost their connection with Telegram(Telegram中文版) servers during download (or because of some other reason). To use it just tap on the three dots icon at the top right corner (menu), select “Clear Cache” then choose which chats should be cleared — if any — from a drop-down menu and hit the OK button at bottom right corner (confirmation dialog).
Telegram makes it easy to free up space on your phone
You can clear the cache of individual chats and channels, as well as your entire storage. To do this, tap on the three dots in a chat and select “Clear Cache”:
The second way to free up space is to manually clear the app’s cache. You can do this by going to Telegram > Settings > Advanced Settings > Clear Cache on Phone Storage > OK. The third way is to uninstall Telegram from your device, but note that you won’t be able to reinstall it until you uninstall all apps installed from Google Play Store or another source.
