Telegram Premium was announced earlier this month, the messaging app finally launched the paid tier, which gives users access to additional features for $ 4.99 per month. By subscribing to this service, users unlock duplicate limits, 4GB file uploads, faster downloads, exclusive stickers and reactions, better chat management, and much more. All features are described in a Telegram blog post.

Telegram Premium comes with many features, many of which are likely to appeal to Telegram's most active user base, now 700 million.

Telegram Premium will allow subscribers to get double the limits imposed on standard users. Instead of merging up to 500 channels, subscribers are limited to 1,000 channels. The same goes for other Telegram features: subscribers can create 20 chat folders with 200 chats each, save up to 10 stickers, pin up to 10 chats, and add a total of four accounts to Telegram instead of three. Premium users can also have a longer bios with a link.

Some other great features include access to a library of premium stickers with meaner full-screen animations, exclusive emoji reactions, and animated profile pictures (kind of like the ones you see on Steam). There's also text-to-speech conversion in case you don't have a headset handy, as well as chat management tools that let you change the default chat folder. Oh, and Premium membership removes sponsored posts on public channels.

It should be noted that the free features will remain free and the new features will not affect the Telegram experience for non-subscribers. This means that free Telegram users should be able to download larger files uploaded by subscribers, as well as see the premium reactions or emojis they use. Like the new Telegram Premium, the company says it won't even stop developing features for free users, which the platform appears to be following so far. Telegram's latest update shows verified badges in chats (not just in profiles, search results or chat lists), gives public groups the ability to enable membership requests, and adds some platform-specific improvements.
