Telegram for Android seems to be testing chat head bubbles for messages. The function, which is buried in beta model 6.3.zero of the app, permits customers to maintain conversations on the forefront of their system within the type of a bubble. This provides comfort in case you ceaselessly discuss to a sure pal or member of the family.
The function was first dropped at our consideration by Twitter consumer Nadan Parinda, who uncovered the choice in a hidden debug menu present in Telegram’s settings. However, this function seems to have been noticed even earlier by the oldsters at TestingCatalog.

If you’re working Android 10, you additionally should allow “Bubbles” within the Developer Options for it to work. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem Telegram’s bubbles work on each system working Android 10. We examined the function on an ASUS ROG Phone Three and the bubble UI was damaged. On the Pixel 4, the bubble crashed once we tried to work together with it. We did get it to largely work on an OPPO Find X2 Pro (as proven earlier), whereas our tipster claimed it ran with out difficulty on a Redmi Note 5 Pro working the Pixel Experience customized ROM.
Meanwhile, on Android 11, Telegram’s chat head bubbles don’t work in any respect, as a result of the notifications aren’t acknowledged as a “conversation” notification. This might change, nevertheless, in future app updates. After all, chat head bubbles are a foremost function of Android 11.
Telegram seems to be understanding the kinks proper now, therefore why it’s a beta function. But as Android 11 is launched, chat bubbles will seemingly change into an ordinary Telegram function for faster, extra handy communication.
