Telegram Desktop is a full-featured version of the Telegram app which is used by millions of people worldwide. The only downside of the Desktop version is that it gets the update late and some of the very crucial features don’t actually reach desktop users. So, one of the very much sought and long-due features was the in-app image editor. Finally, Telegram has rolled out this feature to all beta users in New version 2.8.6 beta.
How to Get & Use Image Editor in Telegram Desktop
Since these updates come early for the beta tester, so you need to first download the Telegram Beta (version 2.8.6) from this link. Then tap on the hamburger icon(≡) on the top left corner and at the bottom, you can see the Telegram version.
