Telegram Premium gives you access to multiple features including doubled limits, higher file uploads, faster downloads, and more.

In addition, you can use the existing features on the app for free.

Here’s a quote from Telegram, “Premium subscribers will help improve and develop the app for decades to come, while Telegram will remain free, independent, and uphold its users-first values, redefining how a tech company should operate”.

Telegram Premium costs between $4 to $8 depending on your location.

For example, if you’re living in Singapore, it costs $7.48 per month.

If you’re a non-premium user, you can also make use of premium benefits.

If a premium user sent an extra-large document, you can download them.

You can also view stickers sent by premium users and increase counters on premium reactions.
