The team of the popular messenger Telegram announced the release of a major update for all major platforms.
The update offers a new platform for creating emojis, animated emojis in message texts and captions for media files, custom emoji sets, the ability to gift Telegram Premium to another user, blocking voice messages, and much more.
The new emoji creation platform allows you to upload your own sets with unique characters for Premium users. New animated emoji can be added directly to the text of messages or captions for photos and videos to convey any emotion – even in the middle of a phrase. The first 10 animated sets with over 500 emojis are already available to premium users. New sets and emoji will appear regularly.
Interactive Animated Emoji – If either party clicks on a message with an emoji, both chat participants will see a full-screen animation at the same time.
The new sticker panel in Telegram for iOS lets you quickly and easily switch between stickers, emoji, and GIF sections, just like in the Telegram apps for Android, desktop, and browsers.
Premium-users have a new option in the settings: to prohibit the interlocutors from sending voice and video messages. With its help, you can choose who can send such messages: “Everyone”, “My Contacts” or “Nobody”.
If the user already has a paid Telegram Premium subscription, he can share all the benefits with family, friends and colleagues by giving them a prepaid subscription for 3, 6 or 12 months – at a nice discount.
