Telegram reaches version 4.2.2 on Google Play after its last update a couple of weeks ago that included the photos autodestruíbles and biographies. On this occasion it is a minor update with some small improvements in the search and send emojis.

Specifically, you can now get suggestions of emojis to the old-fashioned way, i.e., by typing the name of the emoji starting with two points, as for example :laughing: or :santa:. On the other hand, the search in groups, you can now filter by.


Add emoji by your name

This new feature is quite similar to that introduced WhatsApp at the end of June, although it is somewhat faster thus you do not need to go to the list of emojis, press the search button and type the word you want to search for.

instead, you learning memory (or try to find out) the name of the emojis in a sort of nod to the use of emoticons on forums. The only prerequisite is that you write a colon before the name, therefore all the auto-complete emoji are based on names of the style :emoji:

Emojis

Some emojis are easier to find by name than others, so until you learn the easiest way to investigate the names is write two points and test with each letter of the alphabet. Does not exist, at least for now, a list of correspondences between names and emojis.

Search by author

Search

another novelty Telegram 4.2.2 is related to the searches. Like the version 3.14 allowed us to do a precise search by date, this time is added to the filter by author. To use it you must tap on the new button of “members” after you do a search on a group.
