Telegram Desktop 1.0 Introduces a New Design, Refined Animations and Custom Theme Support

For a while now, Telegram has offered the choice of two different versions for using the service to chat on your Mac — a native Mac app simply called “Telegram” and a cross-platform version called Telegram Desktop that shares its code and works across Windows and Linux platforms as well. The latter has today reached a milestone with version 1.0.

Today’s release introduces a new design, refined animations and support for custom themes. It is available for Free from the Mac App Store or directly from the Telegram website.
