The Telegram messenger is one of the most popular WhatsApp alternatives on the market. Now Telegram is to get a function that we will probably never see in WhatsApp in this form. This is to avoid spoilers.
Telegram gets anti-spoiler function
Anyone looking for a WhatsApp alternative will quickly come across Telegram. Besides Signal, this is one of the biggest messengers around. To ensure that interest continues to rise, users are constantly being provided with new functions. An anti-spoiler feature will soon be integrated:
It is about the possibility of hiding a text that could lead to unwanted spoilers in a chat. So you can take part in a discussion on a topic in a group, but hide your message if it contains spoilers . Especially with new series or films, spoilers are absolutely frowned upon. But you still want to talk to your friends in the group about certain things. Accordingly, Telegram will soon create a function that will make this possible.
It is important that you get the message in Telegram that contains a spoiler, marked as such when creating it. Only then will it be shown hidden in the chat. If you want to read the text after all, you can simply tap the message and see it. Of course, if you don’t want to be spoiled, you don’t. The function is currently under development and could soon be activated for all platforms.
Anti-spoiler function also for WhatsApp
A similar function for WhatsApp has not even appeared in rumors. With Telegram, the groups are also much larger and the messenger is in some cases comparable to a social network. WhatsApp, on the other hand, is more intended for small groups. Still, such an option would at least be nice. You don’t want to reveal any spoilers here either and still talk about certain topics.
