The stories option will also provide the users will the duration of visibility such as 6, 12, 24, and 48 hours. Individuals can choose from that criteria for showing the story as per their preference. The feature will also provide the users will privacy regulations, which will provide them to share the stories’ content only will selective people. If users do not want to show their stories to a few contacts, they can add them to the “Hidden” list, which will appear in the contacts option.


However, the stories feature is currently available for premium users and it is not been expected that the enhancement will also be applicable for free, like other apps. The monthly subscription pack for users is Rs 319 while the annual pack is Rs 2,399, which enables the users to unleash premium options and also lets them connect with various communities.

The stories icon will appear on the top, just like on Instagram. But unlike the meta-owned app, it won’t take up that much space on Telegram. In addition to that, the users will also be able to take pictures and videos from the front and rear cameras simultaneously. The users will also be able to use stickers and add polls, and quizzes to their stories.
