After the announcement in June, Telegram received its own version of Stories.
When recording a photo or video for temporary publications, you can use two cameras, you can also choose the “expiration date” of Stories – 6, 12, 24 or 48 hours. There’s support for subtitles and detailed privacy controls: show stories to certain contacts, hide from some, or select whose temporary posts you don’t want to view.
Only Telegram Premium users will be able to test the new feature – in order for Stories to appear, you must manually update the application.
The feature reportedly arrived with limits of up to 100 stories per day. It is possible to send reactions that will come in private messages to the authors.
Also announced are a dozen photo and video editing tools, captions, links, and tags for people – probably paid-tier users will get some extra bonuses. Similar to a similar feature in Instagram, it will be possible to save Stories to Telegram, as well as repost messages from channels in stories.
