Wouldn't be so bad if the seed story from telegram itself would stop leaving its notification at the top, even though I let the phone play the cursed thing all the way through. Telegram product managers, we can ALREADY share photos and videos to groups and contacts. The last thing we need is you trying to make the platform more like facebook.
No option to hide story bar adds visual clutter. Also I don't like that there is an increased chance that I accidentally share something to everybody.
This suggestion is posted in 2021 and why is the option to disable the function still not available? clicking each and every one to disable is so annoying!
The manner of the Telegram has put the stories is weird, and clashes with Telegram's interface proposal.
