Telegram Premium launched: Here’s all you need to know

Did you know that in 2022, with 700 million monthly users, Telegram entered the list of the top 5 most downloaded apps worldwide? In case you’re wondering, first is Instagram, followed by Snapchat, TikTok, and Subway Surfer. Credit for its popularity goes to word of mouth as Telegram has not spent any money on advertisements. Reaching such heights now, the instant messaging service has introduced paid subscriptions for users who want more exclusive features. 

You must be wondering why after providing Telegram for free for so many years, why they rolled out this paid subscription model, right? To know the reason behind it, let’s move ahead.

Why has Telegram rolled out its premium version?

As Telegram’s user base grew to 700 million worldwide, it has launched the premium plan so that users could help this messenger app grow continuously (maybe it could touch a billion in the near future).

It has rolled out this plan to give customers a chance to use the exclusive features that would enhance their overall experiences like double feature limits & more.

Telegram Premium features

If you buy the premium version of Telegram, you will be able to use the following exciting features: 

  • Share larger files with others: Sometimes you get very irritated when you realize that you can only send up to 2GB of files to other people via Telegram. But, with the premium subscription, users will be able to send up to 4GB of files which is double the previous limit. This means you could also share an uncompressed 4K video or even a 1080p movie with others without any hassle.
  • Not only will you get double the capacity, but you will also be able to upload and download the files faster than the users not using Telegram Premium.
  • All the limits doubled: As Telegram wants to make its premium users feel special, it has increased the limit for groups, channels, public links, pinned chat, and saved GIFs to double the current limit. Earlier users were able to join 500 groups, but now with this new update, they can join up to 1,000 groups. Furthermore, earlier, users were able to save only 200 GIFs, but now users can save up to 400 GIFs that they love. 
  • Voice to Text features: If you are in a situation where you cannot hear a voice message, you now have the option to convert it into text so that you can read it.
  • To make the conversations more interesting, people tend to use stickers. So Telegram offers unique stickers for its premium customers, where stickers will be visible on the full screen of your device. 
  • Animated profile pictures: This is the most unique feature that you won’t find in other apps. Users can create unique and attractive animated profiles that everyone can see (even the non-premium users).
