Telegram In-App Ads Coming

Telegram, which has become the preferred messaging application of many users due to their principles on privacy, has been on the agenda today with their new plans for the future. Telegram‘s founder Pavel Durov announced that ads will arrive to the application in the announcement he shared on his Telegram channel.

Pavel Durov also made some explanations as to why Telegram will have ads. Accordingly, the ads, which will not be very appealing for many people using the application; will serve to meet the increasing server costs with Telegram‘s nearly 500 million active users.

Pavel Durov stated in his announcement that Telegram has paid for the company’s expenses out of his own pocket throughout its history; and said that the app, now close to nearly a billion users, should have decent financial support. He stated that projects that encounter such a situation; often have the option to start making money or sell the company to cover the cost. Explaining the path that Telegram will follow, Durov announced that they will not sell the company as the founders of WhatsApp did. Stating that they will keep Telegram active for a long time; Durov announced that the application will start to generate revenue from next year.

Although there are tens of thousands of Telegram users who do not like the idea of ads; the ads to be added to the application will not be noticed by many users; because the they will not change the current view of app. Ads will not appear in conversations in 1 to 1 or group chats. In contrast, the ads will be featured on major public channels followed by millions of users. Telegram will do the same as the owners of these channels make money by running ads. Ads will be shown to users in these channels in a user-friendly and confidential way with the “Ad Platform” to be implemented.

In addition, owners of public channels where Telegram‘s ads are shown; will also be able to earn a share of these advertising revenues. Of course, this will only happen if the app starts making money. Don’t forget to check our other news here as well.
