Instant messaging application Telegram has launched two new web apps called Telegram WebZ and WebK. The web apps offer desktop users Telegram’s mobile functionality in a more sophisticated interface and come with features like animated stickers, chat folders and a dark mode.
While both the WebZ and WebK apps offer identical functions, the two apps exist at the same time, according to Telegram, in order to maintain internal competition. Aside from desktops, the web apps can work on any device with a browser, including smartphones and tablets.
How do you use Telegram WebZ / WebK?
You can use either web app by looking for the Web Apps section on the Apps page on Telegram’s website. Click here either on Telegram WebZ or WebK. Users should be directed to the site.
On the WebZ or WebK website, users can log into their accounts using either their credentials or a QR code scan with their phones, similar to WhatsApp Web.
Users can try both Telegram WebZ and WebK, which both have similar features. However, Telegram has determined that both versions have “major features that are not yet supported or not fully implemented”. However, users can still access the app and submit bug reports.
