Telegram will soon start putting some attributes behind a paywall. In a post on the platform founder Durov declared that the messaging service is launching a paid telegram premium subscription later this month giving users supplementary attributes speed and resources. Durov hints at some of the attributes coming with the subscription including early access to the latest attribute the capacity to upload larger files and premium-only stickers and reactions which were currently previewed in a Beta model of the app. But Durov also makes it clear that Telegram’s existing attributes will stay free and that the paid attributes won’t affect the experience for free users on the app. Non- subscribers will still get to look at the larger files uploaded by premium users and will also get to view and interact with premium stickers and reactions. As Durov explains a premium subscription should help the service mitigate some of the costs connected with bumping up what Durvo calls the previously crazy limits on file sizes and chats media something would be uncontrollable if offered to all users. A paid subscription has been in the works for a while now with Durov first mentioning the possibility in 2020. The beta also indicates premium users won’t have ads in one too many channels something Durov introduced last year. This is in line with Durov’s precious promise that he would give users a way to turn ads off though it looks like you might have to pay to gain access.
