Video Messages on Stories. When creating or reposting a story, you can add a video message to give extra commentary or record your reaction.
Video messages can be resized, moved around the screen and placed anywhere along the timeline.
To record a video message, hold the 📷 camera icon in the story editor. The volume can be changed by holding its video track at the bottom.
Similar Channels. When joining a new channel, a list of similar public channels appears – which you can browse to find more news, content and memes.
For channels you've already joined, you can also see the list on the channel's profile.
Creating Giveaways. Channel hosts can choose exactly who is eligible for giveaway prizes – all subscribers or new subscribers, only people from specific countries, or require that participants subscribe to other channels.
Prizes must be paid for in advance – this can be done from any Telegram app, but @PremiumBot and Fragment are more affordable and allow for larger giveaways.
By giving away subscriptions to Telegram Premium, channels can earn more boosts – automatically receiving 4 boosts for each subscription they give away.
Giveaways in Channels. Channel owners can promote their community and reward subscribers by hosting a giveaway.
Giveaways are a verifiable and transparent way for subscribers to earn prizes – like Telegram Premium and much more.
Channels set the giveaway criteria and pay for prizes in advance – then Telegram randomly selects the winners and hands out their gifts.
