Telegram officially announced the launch of a paid version, which will open access to additional services. The founder of the messenger, Pavel Durov, announced this in his telegram channel, writes BusinessCensor.
“This month we will introduce Telegram Premium, a subscription plan that allows anyone to get additional features, speed and resources. It will also allow users to support Telegram and join the club that gets new features first,” Durov wrote.
The creator of the messenger assured that all existing features remain free and many new free features will appear.
“Moreover, even users who have not subscribed to Telegram Premium will be able to take advantage of some of its benefits: for example, they will be able to view very large documents, media, and stickers sent by Premium users,” he added.
