What novelty is brewing Telegram for the next version of its application, it’s a twist on its excellent stickers: animated Emojis. Organized in packs, as is the case with stickers, these animated emoticons retain the design and size of the usual icons, although move to represent different emotional states. Of course, Animated Emojis will be exclusive to premium users.
In its constant desire to innovate in the field of communication between devices, Telegram includes so many functions in its messaging applications that they are no longer only used to communicate with other users, but also they have become file clouds, blogs and even communities. And, with the launch of the premium service, Telegram was forced to give even more value to its platform. It’s about to revolutionize Emojis, we checked it out.
Impressive animated emojis which are added by packs
Until now, Telegram offered three different ways to communicate with graphical elements. Life Emojis could be used; What they became animated if the user sent one of the available ones with animation. In addition, there were the stickers or stickers, also the variant of the animated stickers. These last two elements are added to Telegram by packages or packs.
The novelty that Telegram will release soon, and which can already be tested in Beta Telegram, are the animated Emojis, that’s what we call them (Animated Emoji). They should not be confused with the animated stickers nor with the animated Emojis which appear in the chat when a compatible is attached: new animated Emojis are organized in packs by design and theme, they are organized separately from regular emoticons and multiple can be sent in the same message (currently you have to tap multiple times to attach them, probably due to a bug in the beta). All are rendered on screen with animation.
These Animated Emoji Packs can only be downloaded if you have Telegram Premium, the payment service of the platform. Currently, there are 11 different packs:
- telemoji. The emoticons of a lifetime, although animated.
- Moon Emoji. Lunar animations.
- retro emoji. Classic emoticons.
- duck emoji. Emojis with the face of a duck.
- face-emoji. Extreme facial animations.
- Skull Emoji. Animated skull emoticons.
- Fox Emoji. Animations of a cute little fox.
- Frog emoji. The Telgram frog in animated emoticon version.
- Emoji Meme. Small emoticons with some of the best known memes.
- hand emoji. Handmade animations.
- cherry emoji. The famous Telegram cherry in animated Emoji version.
Each Animated Emoji pack contains an infinite number of emoticons, between 25 and 77 emoticons (depends on package). They can be added to the collection as stickers. And they are sent from the Telegram Emoji selector: all the desired animated emoticons can coexist in a message. Even with text.
When a single animated Emoji is sent, it appears on the screen in large format. And as more animated emoticons are incorporated into the message, the size of the Emojis is reduced accordingly. Always show individual animations of all Emojis.
Animated emojis can already be used in the beta version of Telegram, but only those who have contracted the Premium service. Stable Telegram users who receive animated emoticons you won’t see them animated, only static (and with the appearance of generic Emoji, not pack customizations). Telegram will surely include this novelty in the next stable version of the application, it should be on the way.
