Telegram is going to launch group video calling feature on Android And iOS in 2020

Telegram going to launch secure group video calls this year:
Instant messaging app Telegram has announced that it is developing a group video calling service that is due to be launched later this year. "Video calls in 2020 are much like messaging in 2013. There are apps that are either secure or usable, but not both. We'd like to fix that," Telegram said in a statement on Saturday.

Telegram Launch Video Calling For all 400 million users in 2020:
However, Telegram did not release many details about the feature of its upcoming service but it appears to be taking a dig at Zoom, which is facing pressure to fix several privacy issues. Telegram also claimed that it has now over 400 million users across the world.

Now Telegram Launch Video Call Feature:
"Telegram has reached 400,000,000 monthly users, up from 300 million a year ago. Every day at least 1.5 million new users sign up for Telegram. Features like folders, cloud storage and desktop support make Telegram ideal for remote work and study during the quarantine," the company added.
Last month, Telegram introduced a Discussion Button, in a bid to let users access a separate group chat extension even on chat restricted channels. The feature allows admins to provide a whole new chat section associated to the specific channel.

Telegram's user base has doubled in the past two years:
 Telegram, it hit the 400 million user milestone this year. Reaching the milestone means it's doubled its user base since 2018 when it had 200 million monthly active users.
The company noted at least 1.5 million new sign-ups for the carrier each day, which makes it the most downloaded social media app in over 20 countries. However, its user base nonetheless pales in comparison to WhatsApp, which boasted 2 billion users as of February this year.

Newer apps such as Houseparty and Zoom have become talk of the town. Their popularity has inspired the traditional internet players to launch similar services or update their existing services with the popular features.
Facebook launched Messenger Rooms to allow users to host group video calls with up to 50 people. Its implementation is also similar to how Zoom works.
