Telegram messenger will be able to send animated emoticons inside the message. Now the emoticon “comes to life” only if the user’s message consists only of it, without additional letters or symbols.
The feature has already appeared in the beta version of Telegram 8.9.0 for Android. With it, users can send animated emoticons along with text, while they will be displayed in a standard, not enlarged form.
Earlier in the beta version of Telegram, a function was introduced to prohibit sending voice messages. The function implies the ability to allow sending voice messages only to certain contacts, however, the ban is available only for Premium subscribers.
The premium subscription for messenger users was launched last June. Its cost is 299 rubles, it guarantees downloading at maximum speed, uploading files up to 4 GB, up to 1000 channel subscriptions and other additional features.
