This feature in Telegram which will revolutionize the way stories exists in all apps. This actually requires very less coding and super innovative idea.
Here's the billion dollar idea:
Instead of creating a whole new stories/status feature(like other apps). Telegram can innovatively create a private chat space(like saved messages) maybe named as Stories/status/whatever.
In there user can send images, video, audio, text, polls etc exactly the way we do in normal chat with all formatting, scheduling etc etc.
Now telegram can make this chat space with a destructive timer of 24 hours or whatever the limit is.
When other people look at our chat, they will see a bubble animation or something indicating unread stories. And when we click at that, those messages are shown in a proper Stories like UI.
Thus the stories content is very versatile, featuristic and also we can react to it.And to mention again, we can schedule it too😊.
Thus telegram's innovative stories feature can revolutionize the messaging app.
I made this idea with all the existing features in telegram. With a proper UI it's just super cool feature. This way whenever we recieve a new feature in chats it gets reflected for stories too.
I really request telegram and people to look into this feature request idea.
This way Telegram can once again surpass all messaging applications.
Additional feature: Stories can be made for Group/Channel too with just few adjustments from this.
