Telegram app has a collection of amazing stickers. There are many stickers that you won’t even find in some of the best editing apps. Not just the chat stickers but the stickers that are used in editing a picture like a nose, eyes, goggles, vigs, etc. are present in a huge number in the Telegram editing options. These stickers are generally known as masks. Other than that, the user can also adjust the brightness and contrast of the photo, crop the photo, make it blur. Moreover, a user can also send self-destructing photos and videos using Telegram.

Self Destructing Messages On Telegram

Before starting with the steps to add the self-destructing command to the photos or videos that we send, we need to understand what actually a self-destructing message is.

As the name suggests, the self-destructing messages or files are those which destruct themselves or simply disappear after the set time limit. Once the receiver opens the messages, the timer starts and appears at the top and the message automatically disappears after that time. The sender can set the time of destruction between 1 second to 1 minute. Now let’s come to the steps to enable self-destructing mode in the messages.

1. First of all, select the photo that you want to send.

2. Now tap on the timer icon given at the bottom.

3. After that, select the time of destruction. Then tap on Done and send the message.

The best part about the self-destructing messages is that the receiver will not find the save option in that photo. Not only that, even the screenshot function will not work in the self-destructing messages. Go on, try it out yourself.

Web Search For Photos And GIFS

Another feature of Telegram that will amaze you is that you can search for photos and GIFs from the web using Telegram app. You can edit these photos using similar stickers and texts and send them to your friends. Use this feature by following these steps.

1. Open the chat to which you want to send the photo or gifs and tap on the attach icon.
