The official Windows 10 Telegram app updated today to Version 6.0 and added several new features such as folders to organize chats, advanced stats for channels with over 1,000 subscribers, and several new emoji groups including some inspired by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Here’s the brief release notes that were sent to users:

  • If you have too many chats, you can now put your work and school chats into separate tabs – and swipe to switch between them.
  • If you’re looking to hide some chats from view, you don’t need folders – simply send them to your Archive.
  • Owners of large channels with more than 1000 subscribers can now view detailed statistics about the growth of their channels and the performance of their posts.
  • We’ve also added a host of new animated emoji and stickers.
