The launch of Telegram Premium was revealed earlier this month by the company’s founder and CEO, Pavel Durov. The corporation has now formally unveiled the aforementioned premium package.
As the instant messaging service works to monetize some of its massive user bases, Telegram has gained over 700 million monthly active users and is introducing a premium tier with more features.
Although the company does not specify how much the premium tier costs, it looks that the monthly subscription costs between $4.99 to $6.
As Telegram keeps growing at rocket speed, many users have expressed their will to support our team. Today we’re launching Telegram Premium – a subscription that lets you support Telegram’s continued development and gives you access to exclusive additional features.
