Telegram announced geotay, they can correspond with people who are next to each other and united by common interests, the company said in a message. Such chat rooms have already appeared in the beta version of Telegram for iOS.

Any user can create a geocate; you need to specify his subject and geolocation radius – from 100 meters to 6 kilometers. Chat history will be available to all users, even messages created before a specific user joined the conversation. The number of geocat participants is unlimited.

Any user will be able to find a particular geocate if he is close to the place to which he is attached. In these chat rooms will appear “checkers” – tags that will indicate that the user has appeared in a place tied to a geotag.

In February 2019, Yandex launched testing of public geotags in a mobile application and Yandex Browser. The user can select chats near his location.
