The creators of Telegram launched many new features earlier this year, including the option to translate entire chats, granular media permissions, categories for emojis, the ability to use animated emojis as profile images, and more.
Here is a step-by-step tutorial on how to replace your existing Telegram profile photo with an animated emoji.
