Telegram’s new video feature — a great tool for distributed teams
We are a distributed team and using Telegram as our main communication channel. To keep each other in the loop we are doing daily standup meetings. Currently we are doing that via Zoom:
Yesterday, Telegram launched a new video message format (beside other stuff). This is a really cool feature for startups which are doing daily standups in a distributed team, and here’s why:
- You can do an asynchronous standup. Especially if you are working in different timezones, this is gold.
- Team members are forced to keep their daily updates short, since the video can by 1 min max.
- You can add additional information or media (text, images, …) in the chat and consume both video and messages at the same time.
