Telegram is introducing end-to-end encrypted video calls on its platform as the chat app completes seven years. Right now the feature will be available in alpha mode on its Android app, while iOS users might have to wait for a little while to get this feature.

Currently, you can only do one-on-one video calls, but the company says that it will introduce group video chat in the coming months. Telegram‘s competitor, WhatsApp, already offers group calls with up to eight people on all mobile platforms.
