The free messenger, who defeated Roskomnadzor at one time, acquired a paid version of Telegram Premium with a lot of additional functions, but the cost for the Russian region is still very high.

Downloading video files will no longer present the problem with a paid subscription-the speed restriction is removed. The files themselves can be up to 4 GB. In general, all internal restrictions, such as the limit of channels, fixed chats, etc. are doubled.

The subscription also disconnects advertisements in public channels, makes it possible to put a video avatar, adds a subscriber icon, organizes chats (auto archivation, hiding chats with non-contact), has exclusive animated stickers and live reactions, and also converts incoming voice messages to the text.

On the iPhone, the subscription can be connected through payment by a mobile operator (only MTS and Beeline).
