At the end of last year, we already told you that Telegram, the second most popular instant messaging application today after WhatsApp , was preparing a payment plan that would allow you, among other things, to stop seeing ads on public channels .
Well, now we have more information about the Premium version of Telegram and this is all that such a subscription could include.
This is all we know about Telegram Premium, the paid version of the messaging platform created by the Durov brothers
The Telegram Beta community has discovered, in the latest beta of the app for iOS, with version number 8.7.2, a series of stickers and reactions to messages that are exclusive to the paid version of the messaging service, which has been baptized as Telegram Premium.
Thus, as you can see in the video that we leave you below these lines, when trying to access these stickers and reactions, some buttons will appear with the titles Unlock Premium Stickers and Unlock Additional Reactions that will indicate that in order to use them you will have to subscribe to Telegram Premium .
At the moment, more details about the Telegram payment plan are unknown, such as its cost or the rest of the extra features it offers , but the strategy that the messaging client seems to be following is similar to that of other platforms such as Twitch or Discord that They also have a premium version that includes several customization options, including a series of exclusive emojis.
In any case, taking into account the philosophy that Telegram has followed until now, everything seems to indicate that the main features of the messaging platform such as group calls or uploading large files will continue to be free for everyone.
