Approximately Two Pink Weeks In Tok

The past two weeks in Tok have been relatively slow, focusing on quality of life features & more user experience improvements more than sweeping new features.

Most noticeably, Tok now has an in-window menubar on desktop if you do not have a global menu bar. This provides globally available functionality in a well-organised palette of commands.

Creating Supergroups and Channels

Editing Sent Messages

Better Sizing

Sizing in Tok has been adjusted to make better use of screen real estate and to look less jumpy when resizing the window. Stickers no longer grow unboundedly and remain at a nice and small size, the way they were intended to be.

Tok can now display a preview of links sent in chat.

Better Desktop Folders Presentation

Chat List Reordering

Tok now keeps the chat list's order up-to-date, moving chats with new messages to the top of the list and respects you moving pinned chats on other Telegram apps, moving them accordingly without the need to restart.

Bugfixes

Removed unneeded drums.
