“At the same time, all existing features that users have come to expect and rely on for nearly a decade remain free. Moreover, non-premium users will be able to enjoy some of Premium’s benefits: for example, download the extra-large documents and view stickers sent by premium users, as well as tap to increase counters on premium reactions that were already added to a message,” the company wrote in a blog post.
Users worldwide have been asking Telegram to raise the current limits even further, so the company looked into ways to let users go beyond what is already available. However, Telegram noted that if it was to remove all limits for everyone, its server and traffic costs would have become unmanageable, so the “party would be unfortunately over” for everyone.
“Since the day Telegram was launched almost 9 years ago, we’ve been giving our users more features and resources than any other messaging app. A free app as powerful as Telegram was revolutionary in 2013 and is still unprecedented in 2022. To this day, our limits on chats, media, and file uploads are unrivaled,” Durov earlier wrote in a blog post.
