After saying Telegram Premium previous this month, the messaging app has in the end rolled out the paid tier, which provides customers get right of entry to to further options for $4.99 / month (by the use of TechCrunch).

This method unfastened Telegram customers will have to be capable of obtain better recordsdata uploaded through subscribers, in addition to view the top class reactions or emojis they use.

Durov additionally promised that Telegram gained’t forestall creating options without cost customers both, which the platform seems to be following via on thus far.
