Instant messaging app Telegram has launched an alpha version of one-on-one video calls on both its Android and iOS apps, as part of activities marking its seventh anniversary, the company announced, saying 2020 had “highlighted the need for face-to-face communication.”

According to the company, the video feature was added in response to the need for face-to-face communication as the world goes virtual due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“2020 highlighted the need for face-to-face communication, and our alpha version of video calls is now available on both Android and iOS.

“You can start a video call from your contact’s profile page, and switch video on or off at any time during voice calls.

“Like all other video content on Telegram, video calls support picture-in-picture mode, allowing you to scroll through chats and multitask, while maintaining eye contact,” the company said.
