According to the company, it does not charge a fee for this service and does not keep any user records. It also allows buyers to leave delivery tips, and payments can be made from any Telegram app, even the Web versions.

Telegram has set up a demo channel so that users can test out the feature in advance. There is also a Payments Manual that contains all of the important details for the payments function. Telegram's Voice Chats 2.0 has the latest feature that allows users and admins to plan a voice chat, with a timer at the top of the page. Hosts would also have to manually initiate the voice chat at the end of the countdown. Instead of waiting in the session, listeners can choose to get a notification at the end of the countdown.

Dark Mode, animated stickers, chat files, payments, and other features are included in the new apps. In addition, the chat app has enhanced the media viewer inside the app. Telegram also allows users to stretch and zoom into media without needing to access it in the media viewer.
