Telegram’s Wear OS App has Been Removed

Telegram, a popular messaging service has recently removed its Wear OS app from the Wear OS Google Play Store right when version 8.0 was released.

When 9to5Google attempted to search for the Telegram Messaging app, no results for it came out! If you have installed the Telegram app for Wear OS before Sunday evening, you may still have the app.

Telegram kicked the bucket for the Wear OS app right when Telegram 8.0 was released for mobile devices. This new update brings options that will allow people to hide the name of the user that they have forwarded a message from, and even hide captions.

What is interesting is that the app seems to have disappeared from the play store and, from the experience of 9to5, from their Galaxy Watch 4 and Moto 360 devices. What we are guessing is that it’s a mere compatibility issue.

When Telegram users now do a live stream, the limit to how many people can view it has been completely removed. Another cool feature is that more emojis will be animated when you send them.

Hopefully Telegram will bring back the app for Wear OS soon. Or Is it gone forever?
