Tips and Tricks

for the best messenger, for the best yourself

⭐ Premium Icons. Premium users have 3 more app icons to choose from – a premium star, turbo plane, and night sky. All Android and iOS users have several default icon options, like Vintage and Aqua in Settings > Chat Settings (Android) or Settings > Appearance (iOS).
⭐ No Ads in Public Channels. Sponsored Messages are shown in some large public channels. These privacy-conscious advertisments help support Telegram’s costs, but are hidden for Premium subscribers.
⭐ Profile Badges. Premium subscribers have a special badge that appears next to their name in the chat list, chat headers, member lists in groups, and on their profile.
⭐ Animated Profile Pictures. The profile videos of Premium users animate throughout the app – including in chats and the chat list.
⭐ Auto-Archive and Mute. Premium users can set new chats from non-contacts to automatically go to their Archived Chats with notifications disabled. Enable this setting via Settings > Privacy and Security > Archive and Mute. This option will also appear for any free users who have many chats with non-contacts.
⭐ Default Chat Folder. With Telegram Premium, you can change your default folder from All Chats to a custom one, like Work or Unread. To change it, press and hold a folder, tap Reorder, then drag a new folder to the first space.
⭐ Premium Reactions. Several unique reaction emoji are available to Premium users – like 👌😍❤️‍🔥🤡💯🐳🌭. All users can increase the count of these emoji on a message after a Premium user reacts with one.
⭐ Premium Stickers. Premium subscribers can send dozens of stickers with full-screen effects – which can be seen by all users. More premium stickers from Telegram artists are added every month.
⭐ Transcribe Voice Messages. Premium users can tap the →A button to quickly read a voice message or copy text from the audio. You can also rate the transcription to help improve accuracy – press and hold on iOS or tap next to the voice message on Android.
⭐ Faster Download Speed. Telegram Premium unlocks the fastest possible download speed – loading media and saving files as fast as your network allows.
