What a novelty Telegram is preparing for the next version of its app, it’s a twist on its excellent stickers: the animated Emojis. Organized within packs, as happens with stickers, these animated emoticons maintain the design and size of the usual icons, although move to represent different emotional states. Of course, the animated Emojis will be exclusive to premium users.
In its constant desire to innovate in the field of communication between devices, Telegram has been including so many functions in its messaging apps that they no longer only serve 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 has been forced to give even more value with its platform. It is just about to revolutionize Emojis, we have verified it.
Impressive animated Emojis that are added by packs
Until now, Telegram offered three different ways to communicate with graphic elements. The Emojis of a lifetime could be used; that they became animated if the user sent any of the available ones with animation. In addition, there were the stickers or stickers, also the variant of animated stickers. These last two elements are added to Telegram by packages or packs.
The novelty that Telegram is going to release shortly, and that can already be tested in Telegram beta, are the animated Emojis, that’s what they are called (Animated Emoji). They should not be confused with the animated stickers nor with the animated Emojis that appear in the chat when a compatible one is attached: the new animated Emojis are organized in packs by design and theme, they are organized separately from the ordinary emoticons and several can be sent in the same message (currently you have to press several times to attach them, probably due to some 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 platform payment service. Currently, there are 11 different packs:
- telemoji. The emoticons of a lifetime, although animated.
- Moon Emoji. Moon animations.
- retro-emoji. Classic looking emoticons.
- Duck Emoji. Emojis with the face of a duck.
- face-emoji. Extreme facial animations.
- Skull Emoji. Skull-shaped animated emoticons.
- Fox Emoji. Animations of a cute little fox.
- Frog Emoji. The Telgram frog in animated emoticon version.
- Meme Emoji. Small emoticons with some of the best known memes.
- hand emoji. Hand animations.
- cherries emoji. The famous Telegram cherry in animated Emoji version.
Each pack of animated Emojis has an infinite number of emoticons, between 25 and 77 emoticons (depends on the package). They can be added to the collection just like 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 a large size. And as more animated emoticons are incorporated into the message, the size of the Emojis is reduced accordingly. Always showing the individual animations of all Emojis.
Animated Emojis can already be used in Telegram beta, but only those who have contracted the Premium service. Stable Telegram users who receive animated emoticons you will not see them animated, only static (and with the appearance of generic Emoji, not the customizations of the packs). Telegram will surely include this novelty in the next stable version of the application, it should be on its way.
