With the new Telegram Premium subscription you can share files of up to 4 GB
Currently, the instant messaging platform, Telegram, exceeds 700 million active users worldwide. In this regard, it has become one of the 10 most downloaded applications according to the Google Play virtual store. NotiPress made a compilation on the features and benefits of the Telegram Premium subscription plan with features and benefits with more speed.
This was announced through the official channel by the founder and CEO of the platform, Pavel Durov:
“After careful thought, we realized that the only way to give our most demanding users the features they want. By keeping our existing free features, is to make those high limits a paid option,” he said.
Meanwhile, after the new Premium subscription plan, the founder added that it was implemented because several subscribers asked to increase the app’s feature limits. However, he confessed that the costs of maintenance and traffic of the servers would have become unmanageable. “All existing features are still free and we will have many new features also free of charge,” Durov explained.
After the new Premium update, Durov said that although the tests they have carried out with advertising on public channels have been successful, he is convinced that the platform should be financed mainly by its users and not by advertisers. “That way our users will always remain our priority,” said the founder.
The first version of Telegram was released on August 14, 2013 for iOS, followed by an Android app two months later. Initially, the app had free messaging features and benefits and a unique end-to-end encryption system to protect user privacy and security. In this sense, all the free features of Telegram will remain free for users around the world.
