Video calls are being used extensively since the pandemic on almost all the platforms for communication and all professional requirements. 

Due to this many such apps have already added video calling support to their platform and now Telegram has joined the list. Telegram has finally released version 7.8 publically which includes the feature of group video calls. Also, anyone that is in a group call can share their screen with others in the group. The option could be found from the overflow button which is indicated by three vertical dots. It will give the user the option to either record the group call or share the screen.
