While Clubhouse drags on delivering the Android version of its popular voice-based service, competitors keep bringing features that have made it successful to their apps available for Android users. Telegram recently launched its Voice Chats feature for channels and has now introduced the ability to ‘schedule’ them just like in Clubhouse.
How To Schedule a Voice Chat on Telegram
Admins can schedule a Voice Chat from their Group or Channel’s profile page. On Android, tap ⋮ > Start Voice chat > Schedule Voice Chat.
On iOS, tap the Voice Chat button and select Schedule Voice Chat.
Users will then see a colorful countdown at the top of the chat. Those too busy to watch the countdown can opt to receive a notification when the voice chat starts.
The chat will, however, not start automatically when the countdown reaches zero, instead, the chat will go live only when an admin presses the Start Now button.
