The latest Telegram desktop version update for Mac, Windows and Linux is characterized by several interesting innovations. Probably, the most important one includes a possibility of installing various themes for Telegram. Now a user can change the look of the user interface by selecting a background, the color of elements and design of buttons as he or she wishes.
All themes are represented as files having the .tdesktop-theme extension. In order to update the telegram interface on your PC, it is necessary to carry out several easy steps:
If you wait for expiration of time without carrying out any manipulations or select the «Revert» option, the look of the messenger will be the same as the one of the previous version.
Besides, before downloading and installing a new theme, you may take a look at its rating. Affirmative and negative votes following a screenshot allow drawing conclusion of the popularity of the given design among the Telegram users.
As we know, Pavel Durovʼs service differs from other messengers by providing wide possibilities for outside programmers which can introduce changes by means of an open API. Moreover, the creation of an individual theme does not refer to an exclusive prerogative of the application’s developers. If you are not comfortable with the provided color scheme, you can develop your own variant at any time. In order to do this, carry out the following steps:
For installing the theme you’ve created, go to your account setting (the service button with three lines) and select the «Choose from file» option in the «Chat background» section. After doing this, specify the path for your file.
An ordinary user may consider such algorithm to be too complicated, especially when it comes to the color configuration development. However, there is no alternative possibility for creating individual themes in Telegram currently.
Anyway, new themes for Telegram interface are regularly added to telegram.me/Themes, so it is highly likely that you will find the optimal color scheme. In addition, the developers offer prospects of adding several tools which will make the process of creating themes easier for ordinary users.
When a novelty effect calms down, a user frequently starts thinking that a default interface version was actually not too shabby. So, what should you do in order to start using it again? It is not rocket science:
It is reasonable to clarify that manipulations with themes can be only carried out in desktop programs starting from the 1.0 version. If you want to know which Telegram version is used, go to your account settings and find related information in the «General» section.
