Telegram announced their newest update that adds more features to Telegram Premium subscription and for everyone. The update is currently out on iOS and Android, and soon Telegram will roll it out to other platforms. Let’s look at all the new features that Telegram added to this update.
Now Telegram has included a new emoji Status as a part of its premium features. Premium users now add an animated emoji status displayed next to their name. These will apply to those who have premium users of Telegram.
All premium users get a 🌟 Special badge with incredible features, which can appear next to their name in the chat list. Also, they appear in the chat header and member lists of groups. Now you can set one of 7 standard statuses that change their color grading to match various Telegram themes – or choose from several custom emoji.
All Telegram users, including the non-premium users, now have access to a more significant number of reactions. These reactions also include the ones that were previously only available for premium users, like 🤣 😐 🐳.
The reaction panel got a redesign to accommodate more emojis. However, your most used reactions will always appear on top. As for Premium users, they can pick reactions from an infinite selection of custom emojis. Plus, they can add up to three reactions to a single message.
Telegram adds custom themes, and you can choose from the app’s several themes and color combinations. It’ll also change elements like the colors of chat backgrounds and messages.
To do this, head over to Telegram’s settings by sliding over the hamburger menu from the app’s left. Here, choose ‘Settings’ and then click on ‘Chat Settings. In this menu, you will see several themes and color options to choose from, and you customize any color. Further, you can also change the curve on message boxes and font size.
