Telegram aims to release a ‘Premium’ version. According to the details we know so far, we will be able to access exclusive functions under a payment system.

An important novelty has been revealed in version 8.7.2 of Telegram for iOS. This has been reported by a channel dedicated to the betas of the app, although unofficially. According to comments, it is a ‘Premium’ version for Telegram , and it would come to offer multiple new features under a paid subscription method.

So far, what we know is that premium users will be able to use special stickers, as well as exclusive emoji reactions . All this would be included in the Premium version of the application, according to the various leaks. Also, some images of what this subscription screen could look like have been revealed.

At the moment the subscription plans, how it will work and the price at which it would arrive are unknown. Of course, the movement has not been received with too much emotion by the followers of the application, as is often the case with this type of decision. However, for some time now Telegram has been giving clues about similar things.

According to the Digital Trends medium , in 2020 Pavel Durov, creator of the platform, commented that ” Telegram will begin to generate income from next year “. This as part of a movement to avoid being sold as WhatsApp, and not to disappear as so many have done in history. According to Durov, Telegram “will add some new features for business teams or advanced users”, but the wallet would have to be opened. In fact, at the end of 2021 the company announced a subscription to remove advertising from its channels.

How the Telegram Premium plan works

Although all the functions are unknown, a leaked video allows us to see how the system works . From 9to5Google they comment that the reactions that would come along with Telegram Premium would be “similar to the great emoji that Telegram introduced in recent months, but with options that are not available to free users.”

Users who are not part of the Telegram premium model will not be able to see these reactions or stickers in conversations. They will only see an ad inviting them to join the subscription.

Of course, for the moment the company has not officially ruled on this proposal. In fact, the monthly price that Telegram Premium would have is unknown , as well as if it will offer other functions beyond exclusive stickers and reactions.

An avatar creator for Telegram

According to comments from Reddit , it seems that this new function would also come with an avatar creator . At least that has been the case of a user who managed to see this feature in the version of Telegram for macOS. Of course, it is unknown if it is something that the company is working on for all its users, or if it will be exclusive to the subscription.

At the moment, it seems that users are just looking for some clarity . After all, for a company as respected by its user base as Telegram to go over to the “dark side” of subscriptions is not something that happens every day.
