Telegram develops geotags function

Geochats will be able to be used by people who are close to the creator of this chat - within a radius of about 100 m

or 6 km. Telegram will also introduce thematic groups that are tied to a specific location, and only people located in a certain area will be able to see them.

Administrators need to create geotagsspecify location: for example, Palace Square, St. Petersburg. After that, the chat will get into the list of geots, and people who are in the area will be able to find it.

It is planned that the new features will appear in the next release of the messenger. At the same time, it is not yet clear how users who log into the instant messenger using a VPN will use geotags.
