Telegram Adds Premium Subscription Tier With Exclusive Stickers and Reactions The paid option comes as the messaging app tops 700 million active users.

Popular messaging app Telegram is introducing a premium subscription tier. The new paid option offers exclusive stickers, reactions, and other features like faster downloads and larger uploads, according to a company blog post on Monday.

Subscribers can also follow up to 1,000 channels, create up to 20 chat folders with 200 chats each, pin up to 10 chats, and add four accounts in the app instead of three. Premium users can also write longer bios with a link.

Telegram’s premium subscription comes when the app reaches 700 million active users. Though the app adds new features for paying subscribers, it says all existing features will remain free. The new paid option reportedly costs $5 per month.

Telegram did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
