Telegram has been developing a Telegram premium subscription service in order to monetize the platform for some time. The secure messaging service is in the final stages of planning for the subscription service, and information about it has begun to appear in beta versions of the app. In this post, we go over all of the new features coming to Telegram Premium, as well as the subscription service’s pricing.
Even though Telegram Premium is still in beta, the messaging service has begun to offer a premium subscription option in its most recent release. In any event, we can expect Telegram to begin charging for subscriptions in the coming days or weeks.
Telegram Premium: Features
Bandwidth and Upload Size have been increased
The maximum file size that can be uploaded by a free Telegram user is 2GB. Telegram does not allow uploads of files larger than 2GB. For Premium subscribers, this cap has been increased by two times. The maximum file size for premium users is 4GB. Additionally, the upload/download speed limit for Premium users has been removed. Unlimited upload and download speeds are included in the Premium package.
Improved Downloading Speeds
Following that, Telegram has announced that it is boosting download speeds across the board for its subscribers. It is important to note that Premium users will not be subject to any speed limits when downloading media and documents. The maximum download speed that regular Telegram users can achieve will be capped. If you want to take advantage of the speed gains that come with having a Premium subscription, it goes without saying that you will need a reliable and speedy internet connection.
Voice-to-Text Conversion and Ad-Free Experience
With Telegram Premium, you get Voice-to-Text Conversion, which is one of the most useful features. Listening to voicemails is no longer necessary with this feature. Artificial intelligence (AI) transcribes voicemails so you don’t have to listen to them. Also, Telegram’s sponsored advertisements, which have appeared recently, may irritate you. Precursor to Premium was Telegram’s work on advertising. Premium subscribers won’t see any ads because of this. Because it is ad-free, Telegram Premium is an attractive option.
Customized Badges and Reactions, in addition to Special Stickers
Additional features are designed to make Premium users feel like absolute VIPs. If you are a user with a Premium account, your responses to messages will be represented by unique animations. In addition, a unique badge will be displayed next to your profile name, making it obvious to members of every group that you have upgraded to the Premium tier.
Stickers that can only be gained through Telegram Premium have also recently been added. These stickers will have additional effects in comparison to stickers that are currently available in the market. In addition, Telegram guarantees that its stickers will be updated on a monthly basis.
Telegram Premium now includes an expanded version of one of the most important features that was previously only available to free users. Premium users have the ability to join one thousand different channels. In addition, the limit of twenty folders that can be created for groups and channels has been raised to accommodate the new limit. The maximum number of channels or chats that can be bookmarked by a free Telegram user is 5, but premium users have that limit increased to 10.
In November of the previous year, Telegram made public the company’s intentions to launch sponsored messages. At that time, the company also made a commitment to introducing a low-cost subscription option that would disable advertisements. That is, in fact, moving closer and closer toward becoming a fact. Subscribers to Telegram Premium will not be exposed to any advertisements in public channels.
Advanced Chat Management
The new advanced chat management features will be beneficial to users who are active on multiple channels simultaneously. Premium users of Telegram will have the ability to hide new messages from users who are not already on their contact list, auto-archive chats, and set a default folder for chats to store them in.
Telegram is implementing profile badges for its users, taking a cue from the successful model established by Signal. All users will be able to see the star icon that premium subscribers receive next to their names in the conversation window. This badge will be displayed in the conversation window.
Animated profile pictures, which are currently available for free to all users, will soon be available only to those who pay. You may not know, but Telegram allows you to create video avatars to better represent yourself on the platform.
Premium App Icon
As an additional perk of the Telegram Premium subscription, users will now be able to customize their app icons. There are at least three new icons, and there are likely to be many more in the near future. For those who want to personalize their phone without relying on icon packs, this is a good option.
