What We Know About Telegram Premium

The co-founder of Telegram Paul Durov announced in 2020, that the messaging platform will bring in paid subscription and ads platform to generate revenue. The company has been mute regarding the features. Beta testers for iOS spotted new Telegram premium stickers and reactions in version 8.7.2. Users with access to Telegram’s TestFlight builds and its Test Server can send each other exploding-heart and flying-ghost reactions, a sticker in which that cute blobby yellow duck is just unbearably unhappy. A non Telegram premium user won't be able to see the sticker and will also be prompted to sign up for a Telegram premium subscription.

According to Paul Durov, Telegram will feature paid subscriptions and ads to generate revenue in order not to go instinct or sell out like WhatsApp. Will you switch to another messaging platform because of the rumored subscription? If Telegram is your daily driver for instant messaging it's not necessary to switch as they have promised to have distinctive security features as all the activities including groups, chats and media shared among participants are encrypted.
