The number of subscription votes has increased

The Telegram team has launched a fresh major update to the popular messenger. One of the most important innovations of the update is that channel owners can now hold sweepstakes, randomly distributing prizes among subscribers.

Channel owners can create a giveaway and set the conditions for it with just a couple of clicks. At the end of the drawing, Telegram will randomly select winners from among users who meet the specified criteria. Winners receive gift codes, which can serve as public confirmation of winning the drawing. Each gift code activates a free Telegram Premium subscription, but organizers can add their own prizes to the subscription.

In addition to the number of winners and the duration of the drawing, the organizers, if desired, can limit the number of participants only to new channel subscribers or residents of certain countries. You can also specify additional channels that users need to subscribe to in order to participate in the drawing.

Before the start of the drawing, the organizer must pay for the selected number of Premium subscriptions.

In addition, with the launch of the update, the developers increased the number of votes provided for the Premium subscription. Now users who pay for the subscription themselves receive 4 votes, which can be given to one channel or distributed among several. Telegram explained:

If you give Telegram Premium to another user, he gets 1 vote, and you get 3 additional ones. If you get a subscription for winning the drawing, all 4 votes will remain with the organizing channel.

Telegram founder Pavel Durov has already taken advantage of the new function . He launched a drawing for 10,000 subscriptions to Telegram Premium for six months.
