Instant messaging application Telegram has launched two new web apps called Telegram WebZ and WebK. The web apps bring Telegram’s mobile functionality to desktop users in a more polished interface and filled with features like animated stickers, chat folders, and a dark mode.
While both the WebZ and WebK apps offer identical functionality, Telegram says the two apps exist simultaneously to maintain internal competition. Apart from desktops, the web apps can work on any device with a browser, including smartphones and tablets as well.
How to use Telegram WebZ/WebK?
You can use either of the two web apps by going to Telegram’s website and looking for the Web Apps section on the ‘Apps’ page. Here, click on either Telegram WebZ or WebK and users should be redirected to the site.
Once on the WebZ or WebK site, users can log in to their accounts with either their credentials or a QR code scan with their phones, similar to how WhatsApp Web works.
Users can try out both Telegram WebZ and WebK, both of which have a similar set of features. However, Telegram has stated that both versions have “major features that are not yet supported or not fully implemented”. However, users can still reach out to the app and submit bug reports.
