In terms of functionality, it is similar to ordinary players. There is also a pause, rewind, song information. The developers are trying to make Telegram as convenient as possible, so a person with any level of knowledge will be able to easily navigate and master the application.

At the time of its first sound, the track is automatically added to the application cache. Thanks to this feature, you can listen to music without an internet connection. But for the sound to go, you need to click on the arrow to the right of it. The download will start, which will take very little time. When finished, click on Play and enjoy the music.
