access to new file transfer services is one of the features included.
Paying customers will be able to access a slew of additional features, while “maintaining free access” to Telegram’s “basic app.”
What do users get?
Free users will be limited to 2GB of file storage, while Telegram Premium subscribers will be able to send files up to 4GB in size.
Regardless of whether or not they have Telegram Premium, all Telegram users get access to these extra-large documents.
Telegram Premium customers will also be able to download media and files at “the fastest possible speed” from their unlimited cloud storage, according to the company’s announcement.
Premium users will also be able to follow up to 1000 channels, create up to 20 chat folders, each with a capacity of up to 200 messages, add a fourth account to any Telegram app, and store up to 10 favorite stickers in the main list.
Telegram Premium users will be able to rate the quality of transcriptions and convert their voicemails to text.
Depending on where you live, Telegram Premium will cost anything from $4.99 to $14.99 per month.
Animated Profile Pictures, new emoticons, and premium badges are also included in the new features.
Sponsored Messages can be displayed on big, public one-to-many channels in various countries. Telegram Premium users won’t see any more of these advertising.
However, Telegram’s rise has not been without its share of unwanted participants.
Malware downloaders masquerading as Telegram installers have been brought to the attention of the public, and users are being cautioned.
An AutoIT software, which also serves as an AutoIt downloader, is also being used to distribute the PurpleFox malware in a single download, according to Minerva Labs’ cybersecurity analysts.
