Telegram actually supported multiple themes already, so why not multiple accounts, since the latter is more important?

The instant messaging app Telegram has been updated to a new version - v4.7, bringing a slew of new features aboard. The biggest new feature to hit is the support for multiple accounts, which is a feature people have been asking for now for a while.

Moreover, the iOS app still can't support multiple accounts, but the company has chose to do something new for the iOS users, as well. This would be very useful for someone who is using multiple phone numbers. With the 4.7 update, Android users of Telegram can now add up to three accounts with different phone number to the app and can switch between them from the side menu. This allows users to reply to a specific message in a chat with just a swipe to the left. Make sure you are using the latest version of the app if you don't see the aforementioned features. Switching between these accounts have also been made easier as the notifications have been programmed to show which account should be checked for a new message.

Well, that's all that Telegram has included in its 4.7 update. With the quick replies feature, users now don't have to long press on a message and tap on the back arrow button to reply to it. If waiting is not your thing, you can go ahead and download the update manually through Google Play Store. Do you think that the new quick-reply feature is a step in the right direction for the Telegram app.
