28

And the developers do not consider it problematic Recently, Telegram has appeared advertising, which is a text message in large channels. If until now there was still a hope that advertising would not be displayed in the unofficial clients of the messenger, now it is gone. Discuss Telegram will make unofficial apps show ads

The developers said they received an email from Telegram, in which they were asked to add an official advertisement from January 1, 2022. Prior to that date, client creators must ensure that the app supports and correctly displays advertisements. If the developers do not do this, Telegram will disable API access for such clients.

Some application creators have already agreed to this. Plus Messenger on Android already has ads. The developers of the iMe Messenger client said they saw “nothing problematic” about supporting Telegram through displaying ads.
