Telegram CEO Pavel Durov wrote a post this week to reveal that Apple was holding off on releasing a major Telegram update for an unknown reason. Now the update has finally been approved in the iOS App Store, and Durov confirmed that Apple complained about new animated emoji included in the app.
The latest update to Telegram’s app for iOS comes with multiple new features, especially for Premium subscribers. For example, it lets users restrict voice messages and even gift someone with a Telegram Premium subscription. However, the most notable feature coming with this update is the new emoji panel, which also brings new animated emoji.
