Telegram has recently launched its long-awaited Stories feature, allowing users to share photos and videos that disappear after a customizable period.

While the feature is similar to Stories on other social media platforms, Telegram's implementation offers some unique customization options.

Unlike most apps that make Stories vanish after 24 hours, Telegram allows users to choose the expiration time, ranging from 6, 12, 24 to 48 hours. Additionally, users can create separate lists of contacts to share specific Stories with.

To access the feature, users need to download the latest version of the Telegram app from the App Store. While anyone can view Stories, only Premium subscribers can post them. Also, Stories cannot be published by channels.

The message "Posting stories is currently available only to subscribers" appears when non-Premium users try to create a new Story. This suggests that the feature may eventually become free for all users, but for now, it is exclusive to Premium subscribers.

Telegram CEO Pavel Durov revealed that the Stories feature was initially met with skepticism by the team but quickly became one of the most requested features by users.

Telegram Premium, which unlocks additional features beyond Stories, is available for $4.99 per month. Subscribers can access enhanced functionalities, and those subscribing via the web may enjoy discounted pricing.
