Playing Uno by Telegram is a simple task. Considered an alternative to WhatsApp, the messenger often sets new user records when the popular messaging app faces problems such as instability in recent days. This does not mean, however, that the Russian platform does not have its own attractions, such as the possibility of creating groups with up to 200,000 participants. For those who have more modest pretenses, such as having fun with friends, you can play Uno directly in the app.
With the help of Uno Bot, up to four users per group can participate in an in-app game, which is available for free download from the App Store and Google Play. The tutorial below was made from an iPhone (iOS), but the walkthrough is similar on devices with Android OS.

Step 8. As with traditional Uno, players can change colors, skip players or make them draw cards. The button shows which colors you have most among your cards to facilitate;

The game creator can use some commands, such as / kill, to end the game, or / enable_translations, to translate into Portuguese some of the expressions used in the game, as it is in English. Still, this does not hurt the match, since it is quite intuitive.
