News Tech: For instance, our upcoming update, which is about to revolutionise how people express themselves in messaging, has been stuck in Apple’s “review” for two weeks without an explanation or any feedback from Apple, said Pavel Durov, CEO of messaging app Telegram, in a message posted to his Telegram channel last week. A day after Durov’s article, Apple ultimately gave the update the go-ahead with a condition attached.
On Friday, according to Engadget, Durov wrote a new Telegram post following Apple’s approval explaining that while the update is full of emoji-related features, one was blocked by Apple. The CEO explained, “After extensive media coverage of my previous post, Apple got back to us with a demand to water down our pending Telegram update by removing Telemoji — higher quality vector-animated versions of the standard emoji.”
More updates are coming to Telegram in a few weeks Durov stated, and with 700 million active users the messaging app added a Telegram Premium service for $4.99 per month that adds the ability to upload and use custom emoji in chats, privacy settings for voice messages, the ability to gift a Telegram premium subscription, and more. Premium users get access to 10 initial custom emoji packs totaling more than 500 Premium emoji. Many more are coming.
