Direct share seemingly chooses random contacts and not the most recent chats.
Please fix the Direct Sharing targets in Telegram. For years I am getting some very weird targets while sharing something to Telegram contacts. FIrst of all update Telegram to use the new Sharing Shortcuts API. In the new Sharing Shortcuts API (but also in the old ChooserTargetService) please publish the most used contacts, or the most "shared to" contacts. For years I am getting totally random useless targets in the dialog. If it's too hard to publish the most frequently used targets then at least use the "pinned" contacts as targets. This will make sharing to Telegram a much better experience. Thank you !

The app still does not suggest the most relevant contacts.
I do not have among suggested in the direct share contacts any of the chats in which I have been active for the last few months. There are even two chats (that Telegram app suggest in the direct share) that have not been active for more than a year and a chat in which there have been no more than 20 messages in all that time.
The suggested chats in the direct share and the list of chats when I open the global search in Telegram app (as far as I remember, there the order of chats is determined by an algorithm based on their activity) do not match at all.
Just suggest in the direct shat the first 4 chats that are shown when you open the global search in Telegram. This would be enough and definitely better than completely irrelevant chats in the direct share now.
At the moment this feature is broken and completely useless.

This card has been declared as fixed by mistake, since another similar issue has been fixed in the same latest release (https://bugs.telegram.org/c/18967), but not this card's one.
We are sorry for confusion. Team will continue the issue investigation.
Maybe it's need it some kind of reset?
Thanks for sharing this.
Can we get group chats to show up? Maybe 1 or 2 instead of the full 4 options?
