Telegram: 25 Tips to Boost Your Conversations

1. Edit images with hand drawings and figures

You can customize the images that are exchanged between your contacts in different ways in Telegram. Hand drawing, figures and texts are some of them. However, there is a small image editor built into the app, which comes with features to adjust brightness, contrast and other aspects of the image. A lot of practicality, isn't it?

Select an image or video to upload, as you normally do, and click the edit icon to begin customization. You can also insert text and even special stickers on the image!

<h2 id=2. Invite friends to a group using links

Did you know that you can send a link as an invitation to your contacts to join a particular group? This makes the life of Telegram users on multiple mobile platforms or computer systems easier. To do so, join the group, click its name, and click Add Member.

You can add by contact or choose, in the first line, Invite to Group via Link. Administrators of a group can disable this function, remember. WhatsApp also offers this and similar features. We already talked about these similarities that exist between both in the article below:

02 "sizes =" (max-width: 806px) calc (100vw - 24px), (max-width: 995px) 782px, (max-width: 1216px) calc (2 * (100vw - 30px) / 3) + 15px - 24px), 782px "src =" "srcset =" 02-w782.jpg 782w, 596w, jpg 450w, 336w, 300w "class = "lazyload" />

<h2 id=3. Advanced search in chats and groups

If you want to search for something in a Telegram chat or group, just tap the three dots in the upper right corner and select Search. In the two buttons that appear, you can go directly to a specific date or search and select a user and will only follow your posts.

If you type something in the search field, find everything related to the term you typed. If you want to search by media, click on the Group or Contact name and go to the Shared Media section. Shared photos and videos will appear, but if you click on the name at the top of the screen you can access only shared files, links or music.

03 "sizes =" (max-width: 806px) calc (100vw - 24px), (max-width: 995px) 782px, (max-width: 1216px) calc (2 * (100vw - 30px) / 3) + 15px - 24px), 782px "src =" "srcset =" 03-w782.jpg 782w, 596w, jpg 450w, 336w, 300w "class = "lazyload" />

<h2 id=4. Using Telegram Bots

Telegram uses bots For some time now, but now they are much more practical and easy to access. To activate and use a bot, just type an @ and complete with the name of the bot as you wish. Give a space and type whatever you need. Some bots which can be used are: @gif (GIF search), @vid (video search), @imdb (movie information search), @bing (general search), @wiki and @bold (text formatting).

There are much more complete third party buttons, but with these you can start playing. As usual Telegram, any developer can use the bots, ie, besides consulting articles or performing functions, recently the app has gained bots that run multiplayer games. Learn how to play on Telegram by visiting the article below:

04 "sizes =" (max-width: 806px) calc (100vw - 24px), (max-width: 995px) 782px, (max-width: 1216px) calc (2 * (100vw - 30px) / 3) + 15px - 24px), 782px "src =" "srcset =" 04-w782.jpg 782w, 596w, jpg 450w, 336w, 300w "class = "lazyload" />
Use bots for various things / AndroidPIT (screenshot)
<h2 id=5. Stickers and animated GIFs

I am not speaking here of simple emojis, but of true images that can be used to express the most diverse feelings, distinguished by the most elaborate graphics. Stickers are like stickers, stickers that can be drawings or pictures. They are downloaded in complete packages with different themes or individually.

Animated GIFs, much requested by WhatsApp users (so far as they have already been implemented), can be searched and sent between Telegram contacts via a directory within the app itself that searches the Giphy service. So you don't have to search Google and send a static image to play with a contact, just attach an animated GIF provided by Telegram itself by searching through @gif.

05 "sizes =" (max-width: 806px) calc (100vw - 24px), (max-width: 995px) 782px, (max-width: 1216px) calc (2 * (100vw - 30px) / 3) + 15px - 24px), 782px "src =" "srcset =" 05-w782.jpg 782w, 596w, jpg 450w, 336w, 300w "class = "lazyload" />
Send gifs and animated pictures to contacts / AndroidPIT (screenshot)
<h2 id=6. Quote the messages

This function is ideal for users who send individual messages during a tumultuous conversation in a group. To reply a message directly to a contact, simply press the corresponding pop up and click the arrow forward (the curved arrow back shares the message, the two sheets copy) or drag the message back.

This will send the message to that sender, but everyone can see it. In addition, the user receives a notification that their message has been answered. Very practical!

06 "sizes =" (max-width: 806px) calc (100vw - 24px), (max-width: 995px) 782px, (max-width: 1216px) calc (2 * (100vw - 30px) / 3) + 15px - 24px), 782px "src =" "srcset =" 06-w782.jpg 782w, 596w, jpg 450w, 336w, 300w "class = "lazyload" />
So the conversation gets more organized / AndroidPIT (screenshot)
<h2 id=7. Mention the contacts

We can say that this function is the modern version of that "call attention" feature of MSN. In a group or individual dialogue, you can mention the contact's name so that they can be notified immediately.

For example: I'm in a conversation in a group that Bruno Salutes participates in, so if I want to get your attention, just write @BrunoSalutes. Ready! She be notified about my message.

07 "sizes =" (max-width: 806px) calc (100vw - 24px), (max-width: 995px) 782px, (max-width: 1216px) calc (2 * (100vw - 30px) / 3) + 15px - 24px), 782px "src =" "srcset =" 07-w782.jpg 782w, 596w, jpg 450w, 336w, 300w "class = "lazyload" />
Mention a contact to alert them individually / AndroidPIT (screenshot)
<h2 id=8. Secret Chats and Self Destruction

The secret chat feature protects all conversations by encryption, ie everything that is chatted within the group or secret chat not registered on Telegram servers. In addition, it is possible to set a deadline for self-destruct of the secret chat, so no trace will be left behind your conversations.

Telegram has the option to encrypt and auto-destroy secret conversations!

Another very useful function: any operation performed on a secret chat will be shown to the recipient, for example: the other contact will know if you have taken a screenshot of the conversation or if the self-destruct time has changed.

08 "sizes =" (max-width: 806px) calc (100vw - 24px), (max-width: 995px) 782px, (max-width: 1216px) calc (2 * (100vw - 30px) / 3) + 15px - 24px), 782px "src =" "srcset =" 08-w782.jpg 782w, 596w, jpg 450w, 336w, 300w "class = "lazyload" />
Remember that someone can still take a screenshot, as I did here / AndroidPIT (screenshot)
<h2 id=9. Sending Documents

Telegram supports various file formats such as PDFs, Office files, zipped folders, images and more. To send them, click the icon next to the send button (a clip) and then the File button. Select the file type and where it is located, either on your device's internal or external storage.

09 "sizes =" (max-width: 806px) calc (100vw - 24px), (max-width: 995px) 782px, (max-width: 1216px) calc (2 * (100vw - 30px) / 3) + 15px - 24px), 782px "src =" "srcset =" 09-w782.jpg 782w, 596w, jpg 450w, 336w, 300w "class = "lazyload" />
Upload files of various formats through Telegram / AndroidPIT (screenshot)
<h2 id=10. Using encryption

Telegram, in addition to pre-programmed encryption and self-destruct secret chat, has an option that adds a PIN code or activates the two-step verification process when the app is opened or in a specific conversation. To use this feature, go to: Settings> Privacy & Security> Password Lock and / or 2-Step Verification.

10 "sizes =" (max-width: 806px) calc (100vw - 24px), (max-width: 995px) 782px, (max-width: 1216px) calc (2 * (100vw - 30px) / 3) + 15px - 24px), 782px "src =" "srcset =" 10-w782.jpg 782w, 596w, jpg 450w, 336w, 300w "class = "lazyload" />
More security levels for you / AndroidPIT (screenshot)
<h2 id=11. Use multiple accounts in one app s

To this day, to use more than one WhatsApp account, I need to juggle or rely on smartphone features (unless you use WhatsApp Business). Already in Telegram this is a native option, which allows you to add not just one more, but several other service accounts in just one app.

Enabling this feature is very easy, but keep in mind that you will need a new phone number for each new account (this number's chip does not have to be on this device, however). Go to the three traits menu in the upper left corner and under your account click Add Account.

11 "sizes =" (max-width: 806px) calc (100vw - 24px), (max-width: 995px) 782px, (max-width: 1216px) calc (2 * (100vw - 30px) / 3) + 15px - 24px), 782px "src =" "srcset =" 11-w782.jpg 782w, 596w, jpg 450w, 336w, 300w "class = "lazyload" />
You don't need two apps to use more accounts on your Telegram / AndroidPIT (screenshot)
<p>Then just follow the same steps you already followed when adding your first account on the device. After that, you can switch between accounts without having to redo the entire login process.</p>
<h2 id=12. Pin conversations on top

One of Telegram's screaming shortcomings is the impossibility of archiving unused conversations. That way your inbox will eventually be full of groups and conversations you don't even want to see anymore. To ease this a little, pin conversations on top of the entrance.

To pin a conversation, channel, or group, hold your finger on one of the chats. A lower menu will appear, and just select Pin to Top. To unlink, follow the same steps. You can fix up to five conversations at the top.

12 "sizes =" (max-width: 806px) calc (100vw - 24px), (max-width: 995px) 782px, (max-width: 1216px) calc (2 * (100vw - 30px) / 3) + 15px - 24px), 782px "src =" "srcset =" 12-w782.jpg 782w, 596w, jpg 450w, 336w, 300w "class = "lazyload" />
Pin the most important conversations so you don't miss them / AndroidPIT (screenshot)
<h2 id=13. Make your own stickers

Tired of always using the same stickers? Want a selection just for you? Would you like to pack a sticker with your own reactions? It is possible and relatively easy. First of all, I need to put together the right size images.

Telegram asks for images no larger than 512 x 512 pixels and cropped to the format you like, saved in PNG (to keep the background transparent, if applicable). They also ask you to put the white border around the images to look like real stickers, but this is not required.

13 "sizes =" (max-width: 806px) calc (100vw - 24px), (max-width: 995px) 782px, (max-width: 1216px) calc (2 * (100vw - 30px) / 3) + 15px - 24px), 782px "src =" "srcset =" 13-w782.jpg 782w, 596w, jpg 450w, 336w, 300w "class = "lazyload" />
You can express yourself more carefully with your stickers / AndroidPIT (screenshot)
<div class='code-block code-block-10' style='margin: 8px auto; text-align: center; display: block; clear: both;'>

.ai-rotate {position: relative;}
.ai-rotate-hidden {visibility: hidden;}
.ai-rotate-hidden-2 {position: absolute; top: 0; left: 0; width: 100%; height: 100%;}
.ai-list-data, .ai-ip-data, .ai-filter-check, .ai-fallback, .ai-list-block, .ai-list-block-ip, .ai-list-block-filter {visibility: hidden; position: absolute; width: 50%; height: 1px; top: -1000px; z-index: -9999; margin: 0px!important;}
.ai-list-data, .ai-ip-data, .ai-filter-check, .ai-fallback {min-width: 1px;}
<div class='ai-rotate ai-unprocessed ai-timed-rotation ai-10-1' data-info='WyIxMC0xIiwyXQ==' style='position: relative;'>
<div class='ai-rotate-option' style='visibility: hidden;' data-index=

Then just go to the search located at home and type @stickers. The sticker creation button will open and in Portuguese will help you with everything you need, giving you the instructions to create a new package, send the images and relate each sticker to an emoji.

You can later add more stickers to a package, change the order, edit or remove the package or an individual sticker.

Save messages for yourself

If you are following an interesting subject and want to keep it, if you get a nice link and want to check it out later, among other uses, you can save conversations in your own area in the app. To do this, keep your finger on anything you want to save (image, sticker, file, conversation, etc.), and click the straight arrow to forward the content.

From the list that appears after that, choose the first field, called Saved Messages. There, just go back home and access your private folder to check everything you have saved. You can delete or forward this content later. I suggest pinning this folder to the top so you always have access to it.

Keep important content in your area / AndroidPIT (screenshot)
<h2 id=15. Use the web version

Like WhatsApp, Telegram also has its web version but, unlike its green competitor, it does not need the connected smartphone to use. Just go to and do the same process you do on smartphones by entering your phone number and the code you receive.

The web version is slightly different from the smartphone app, and its functions are slightly simpler. But almost 100% of what you need to use will be available.

15 "sizes =" (max-width: 806px) calc (100vw - 24px), (max-width: 995px) 782px, (max-width: 1216px) calc (2 * (100vw - 30px) / 3) + 15px - 24px), 782px "src =" "srcset =" 15-w782.jpg 782w, 596w, jpg 450w, 336w, 300w "class = "lazyload" />
And without needing the smartphone always connected! / AndroidPIT (screenshot)
<h2 id=16. Block a contact

Sometimes there's one that bothers you too much, and the only solution blocks it. To do this in Telegram open a chat with the person, click on the person's name, click on the three dots and choose Block. Confirm the decision and the person will no longer see you online and will not be able to contact you. You can unlock some using this same step by step.

16 "sizes =" (max-width: 806px) calc (100vw - 24px), (max-width: 995px) 782px, (max-width: 1216px) calc (2 * (100vw - 30px) / 3) + 15px - 24px), 782px "src =" "srcset =" 16-w782.jpg 782w, 596w, jpg 450w, 336w, 300w "class = "lazyload" />
Don't you wanna talk? No problem / AndroidPIT (screenshot)
<h2 id=17. Use themes and night mode

Another popular request on WhatsApp, themes are a reality in Telegram. The app itself comes with three different ones, including a dark one, but you can also create your own theme or install third party themes. To find more themes, go to and install what you prefer.

To change the theme, go to the side menu, select Settings, Theme and choose the one you like. The creation of themes also in this area, and there is also the possibility to enable Night Mode, which darkens the entire app for better reading at night. You can ask to activate the programmed theme by time or sun or when the ambient brightness is below a percentage you set.

17 "sizes =" (max-width: 806px) calc (100vw - 24px), (max-width: 995px) 782px, (max-width: 1216px) calc (2 * (100vw - 30px) / 3) + 15px - 24px), 782px "src =" "srcset =" 17-w782.jpg 782w, 596w, jpg 450w, 336w, 300w "class = "lazyload" />
 It is very easy to set up themes and smart night mode / AndroidPIT (screenshot)
<h2 id=18. Edit Outgoing Messages

There are times when we miss a word, or the broker changes just before you send the message. To fix these minor stumbles, you can edit messages after they have been sent to Telegram.

To edit a message, hold your finger on it and select the pencil that appears in the top banner. Edit as needed and save the message, which appears corrected at the same time. Remember that the word edited appear in the message in a corner to show others that that content has been modified.

18 "sizes =" (max-width: 806px) calc (100vw - 24px), (max-width: 995px) 782px, (max-width: 1216px) calc (2 * (100vw - 30px) / 3) + 15px - 24px), 782px "src =" "srcset =" 18-w782.jpg 782w, 596w, jpg 450w, 336w, 300w "class = "lazyload" />
Finish the grace of bizarre proofreaders / AndroidPIT (screenshot)
<h2 id=19. Use the Quick Read feature

When we click something on WhatsApp, we are redirected to an external browser or app. In Telegram, most links and content can be viewed in the app itself, and easily. There is no secret to use here: just click on the link and if Easy Reading is enabled it will appear underneath the story.

Click this button and the text opens in the app itself, without ads or other website features. Thus, this mode saves data and makes it easier to read, since only the text and its images appear.

19 "sizes =" (max-width: 806px) calc (100vw - 24px), (max-width: 995px) 782px, (max-width: 1216px) calc (2 * (100vw - 30px) / 3) + 15px - 24px), 782px "src =" "srcset =" 19-w782.jpg 782w, 596w, jpg 450w, 336w, 300w "class = "lazyload" />
With this feature you save data and time / AndroidPIT (screenshot)
<h2 id=20. Use and abuse built-in player

This also works for Spotify links and even YouTube videos. By clicking on the image of one of them, a player appears in the app itself, and can even be put into PIP (Picture in Picture) function. That is, you will be able to access the home of your smartphone or even another app while video continues playing on the screen.

And when the video is in PIP mode, you can turn off the screen that the video will continue to play, only in sound.

20 "sizes =" (max-width: 806px) calc (100vw - 24px), (max-width: 995px) 782px, (max-width: 1216px) calc (2 * (100vw - 30px) / 3) + 15px - 24px), 782px "src =" "srcset =" 20-w782.jpg 782w, 596w, jpg 450w, 336w, 300w "class = "lazyload" />
PIP mode and video with screen off. Who never wanted this? / AndroidPIT (screenshot)
<h2 id=21. Share Your Location

As with WhatsApp, you can share your location with a Telegram contact. You click on the clip near the message area and select Location. You can send your current location at that time or share your location for a set time ranging from 15 minutes to 8 hours.

21 "sizes =" (max-width: 806px) calc (100vw - 24px), (max-width: 995px) 782px, (max-width: 1216px) calc (2 * (100vw - 30px) / 3) + 15px - 24px), 782px "src =" "srcset =" 21-w782.jpg 782w, 596w, jpg 450w, 336w, 300w "class = "lazyload" />
No more making excuses to friends! "T almost a!" / AndroidPIT (screenshot)
<h2 id=22. Program an image to self-destruct

Even without being inside a secret chat, you can send that nude image that you would not want to be kept. To do this, click on the clip near the message area and select Gallery. Choose the desired photo and click on the little clock that appears at the bottom of the screen.

There, choose how long you would like the image to be available after the moment the person opens the file, going from one second to one minute. When sending the image, it becomes blurred to the recipient, and when he touches it, it opens and the time begins to count. It is not allowed to take a screenshot at this time (but remember that it is possible to take a picture of the screen).

22 "sizes =" (max-width: 806px) calc (100vw - 24px), (max-width: 995px) 782px, (max-width: 1216px) calc (2 * (100vw - 30px) / 3) + 15px - 24px), 782px "src =" "srcset =" 22-w782.jpg 782w, 596w, jpg 450w, 336w, 300w "class = "lazyload" />
A little more safety for those "sensitive" photos / AndroidPIT (screenshot)
<h2 id=23. Create a Channel

Sometimes you want to convey information, but you don't want people to start a conversation. You might have, for example, a website, and just want people to receive your articles without interacting with each other, serving only as a feed.

This serves a Channel in Telegram. By creating one, you just post it, and you can still track how many people viewed it and install bots that help you use it. To create one, go to the side menu and click New Channel. Give name, description and photo, choose whether you want a public or private channel and link to it.

If it's public, your channel can be found by searching. If proven, only people with the link you chose will be able to access the channel. The user subscribes to the channel and will receive any updates you make.

23 "sizes =" (max-width: 806px) calc (100vw - 24px), (max-width: 995px) 782px, (max-width: 1216px) calc (2 * (100vw - 30px) / 3) + 15px - 24px), 782px "src =" "srcset =" 23-w782.jpg 782w, 596w, jpg 450w, 336w, 300w "class = "lazyload" />
Spread the word without creating a group / AndroidPIT (screenshot)
<h2 id=24. Choose where and how Telegram can download images automatically

This is another problem with WhatsApp. Either you choose to download all media, or you choose not to download anything. This is useful for groups of friends who only send junk, but you can lose photos of family and other things you would like to keep. In Telegram you can choose this practically on a case by case basis.

Go to the side menu and select Settings, then Data and storage. Under Automatic Media Download, select Automatically Download, and enter the categories below: Photos, Voice Messages, Video Messages, Videos, Files, Music, and GIFs. Within each of them you can choose the download and each type of connection and in each type of conversation, whether with contacts, private, group or channels. Very useful.

24 "sizes =" (max-width: 806px) calc (100vw - 24px), (max-width: 995px) 782px, (max-width: 1216px) calc (2 * (100vw - 30px) / 3) + 15px - 24px), 782px "src =" "srcset =" 24-w782.jpg 782w, 596w, jpg 450w, 336w, 300w "class = "lazyload" />
This is more necessary in WhatsApp than in Telegram, but finally / AndroidPIT (screenshot)
<h2 id=25. Send Video Messages

In addition to sending text and voice messages, through Telegram you also send video messages that appear in a circular format in the conversation. To send one, go to the conversation field and tap the microphone icon. It will turn into a video icon.

Hold your finger on this button to start recording a video of up to one minute. In the middle of the video, you can change the camera you are recording, and after recording you can cut something from the beginning or end of the video.

25" sizes="(max-width: 806px) calc(100vw - 24px), (max-width: 995px) 782px, (max-width: 1216px) calc((2 * (100vw - 30px) / 3) + 15px - 24px), 782px" src="" srcset=" 782w, 596w, 450w, 336w, 300w" class="lazyload"/>
