Popular messaging app Telegram is rolling out a premium subscription tier. The new paid option will offer exclusive stickers, reactions and other features, such as faster downloads and larger uploads, according to a Monday blog post from the company.
Subscribers will also be able to follow up to 1,000 channels, create up to 20 chat folders with 200 chats in each, pin as many as 10 chats, and add four accounts in the app instead of three. Premium users will be able write longer bios with a link, as well.
Telegram’s premium subscription comes as the app reaches 700 million active users. Although the app is adding new features for paid subscribers, it says that all existing features will remain free. The new paid option reportedly costs $5 a month.
Telegram didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
