Despite being the most popular instant messaging app, WhatsApp is not considered the best. Compared to other instant messaging apps, WhatsApp lacks many features. Also, many users have stopped using WhatsApp for privacy and security reasons.
When it comes to the features, no instant messaging app can compete with Telegram. It’s an instant messaging app that allows users to exchange text messages, make voice/video calls, and more.
Also, the Telegram app is available on every platform, including Windows, Linux, macOS, iOS, etc. The instant messaging app is more secure than WhatsApp and offers many exciting features. In the latest update, Telegram got a new feature called ‘Spoilers’.
What are Telegram Spoilers?
Spoilers is basically a text formatting feature that hides the text message. When you type a text and apply the Spoiler formatting, the text gets hidden immediately.
The feature is handy, especially if you want to avoid ruining a movie, a book, or other information for your friends.
Once the Spoilers formatting is applied, the selected part of the message in the chat will be grayed out. The recipient needs to tap on the hidden text message to unhide the message.
The feature is available on the latest Telegram Update; hence you need to update your app first to use this feature. Also, the feature is available on Telegram’s desktop app for Windows, Mac, and Linux.
