Telegram Premium cheaper and in Germany!

Published on in 💬 Micro

I have found a way, it is possible to subscribe to Telegram Premium at a cheaper price and in Germany (where it is actually not yet officially available)!

  1. install Telegram Desktop or Telegram Android (but the version from the Telegram page).
  2. write to the @PremiumBot.
  3. pay for Telegram Premium with a credit card.

I think the 4€ per month is a reasonable price for me for now. I’ve been using Telegram for years and I’m thrilled how quickly new features are implemented. I will gladly pay to keep Telegram going for a long time.

Telegram Premium is there, at least the announcement that it should be there, but the update on Google Play somehow not yet. Unfortunately, the announcement says that Premium is not (yet) available for users in Germany. ☹️ I’m especially waiting for the feature to be able to convert voice messages to text. 😅

I am a Bunny.net fan as they offer a CDN at a good price, are based in Europe and really care about privacy. The latest tool they offer: Bunny Fonts as a replacement for Google Fonts, because its use is illegal in Germany. 👍

Reminder to myself: Don’t delete the Telegram bot you’re using to auto-post new blog posts to Telegram. 🤦‍♂️

It’s worth buying Logitech devices. Even though they are not exactly cheap, they are of high quality and in case of a warranty claim, you can get a new device as a replacement without any complications. At least that’s my experience (with my MX Master 3). 😌
