Telegram recently announced the release of its long-awaited story feature, similar to the ones found on Instagram and Snapchat. While this feature was initially available only to Telegram Premium users, it is now accessible to everyone. Creating a story on Telegram is quite simple. Just tap the plus icon on the top right-hand corner, and you will be taken to a screen where you can add photos or videos. You can also switch between front and back cameras and enable various settings such as lightning and screen orientation.

Adding creative elements to your story is also possible on Telegram. You can include captions, draw on your content, add stickers, and even use text, similar to the features available on platforms like TikTok. The app also offers advanced filters for stories, including options to adjust brightness, contrast, saturation, warmth, and fade. You can even apply blur effects, giving your stories a professional touch.

Once you have created your story, you can decide how long it will be visible before it disappears. After setting the duration, you can tap "next" and share it with your contacts. Telegram offers options to allow screenshots or post it to your profile. Your story will then be visible to your network, and you can manage its privacy settings accordingly. You can edit the story, adjust its settings, save it to your gallery, or even post it to your profile.

One interesting feature in Telegram's story functionality is the "Styles Mode," which essentially acts as a ghost mode. By enabling this mode for the past five minutes and the next 25 minutes, you can watch other people's stories without being included in their analytics. In your own stories, you can see how many views your content has received and which accounts have viewed it. However, in Styles Mode, your account will not appear in the list of viewers, adding an extra layer of privacy.

Telegram also provides a convenient stories archive, where you can easily access and view your previous stories. In this archive, you have the option to zoom in and out, as well as select different stories. To view stories from other users, you can go to your chats and find the stories tab on the top right-hand corner.

As with any new feature, it will be interesting to see how Telegram's story functionality is received by users. With its array of editing options and privacy features, it certainly has the potential to become a popular addition to the platform.
