He said that in honor of his birthday, which is celebrated on 10 October, the Telegram app has received an update, which corrected a longstanding injustice. Now to install Russian language interface does not need to perform dances with a tambourine and communicate with robots. Before to Telegram spoke with you in Russian, it was necessary to write a special bot with a special command to set received from the robot file. Now the Russification of the application has become much simpler and looks just as work with other languages. Just go to menu and choose language, then Russian is the language throughout the interface.
