Telegram, the popular messaging app, has released a demo video of its native visionOS app for Apple Vision Pro, the upcoming mixed reality headset from Apple. The video showcases how Telegram users can chat, send stickers, and browse channels using their eyes, hands, and voice on the Vision Pro.
The Telegram app for visionOS is designed to take advantage of the spatial computing capabilities of the Vision Pro. Users can create multiple windows in their space and arrange them as they like. They can also pull out 3D stickers from the app and place them anywhere in the environment. The app also supports voice input and output, allowing users to dictate messages and hear replies.
The demo video was posted on the official Telegram channel for visionOS developers, which has over 100,000 subscribers. The channel provides updates, tips, and resources for developers who want to create apps for the Vision Pro. Telegram claims to be the first major app to have a native visionOS version ready for launch.
Apple Vision Pro launch date and features
Apple Vision Pro is expected to launch in early 2024 in the U.S., according to Apple’s website. The device is a mixed reality headset that combines augmented reality and virtual reality, allowing users to see and interact with digital content overlaid on the real world, or immerse themselves in fully virtual environments.
The device features a sleek design with a curved glass front and an aluminum frame. It has an array of cameras and sensors that enable spatial awareness, hand tracking, and eye tracking. It also has speakers that deliver spatial audio and a digital crown that controls the level of immersion. The device has two micro-OLED displays that provide a high-resolution and wide-field-of-view experience.
Apple Vision Pro runs on visionOS, a new platform that extends iOS and iPadOS frameworks and tools for spatial computing. Developers can use SwiftUI, RealityKit, ARKit, and other Apple frameworks to create apps and games for the Vision Pro. The device also supports Mac Virtual Display, which allows users to use their Mac wirelessly on the Vision Pro as a large and private display.
Telegram’s vision for the future of communication
Telegram is one of the most popular messaging apps in the world, with over 500 million active users. The app is known for its fast, secure, and feature-rich service, as well as its support for innovation and freedom of expression. Telegram has been one of the first apps to adopt new technologies and platforms, such as end-to-end encryption, cloud-based storage, bots, channels, and voice chats.
With the visionOS app, Telegram aims to provide its users with a new way of communicating and expressing themselves in the mixed reality era. The app will allow users to chat with their contacts, join communities, and access information in a more immersive and natural way. Telegram also hopes to inspire other developers to create apps for the Vision Pro and explore the possibilities of spatial computing.
