Telegram has become one of the best messaging applications worldwide, and now has more than 700 million monthly active users. This growth has been achieved from personal recommendations, as the company has not spent any money on advertising, according to the Arab Portal for Technical News report.
With the continuation of this growth, Telegram has released a new service called (Telegram Premium) with a monthly subscription, a service that helps support the continuous development of the application, and allows users to access additional exclusive features, so what is the Telegram Premium service and what are its new features?
