Group Chats on Telegram
Telegram groups are a powerful tool for building communities and can support up to , members each.
Friends and families use groups to share photos and plans, teams and businesses to coordinate their work, massive ICOs to answer questions and keep in touch with their investors. Telegram has many features that make communication in groups easy no matter their size or purpose.
To reply to a specific message in a group chat, simply swipe left on it, type your text and hit ‘Send’. If you tap on the quote in a message that is a reply, the app scrolls up to the original message – and shows an arrow button to go back to the previous location. This makes navigating conversations in groups easy even if you've been away for a while.
The person you replied to will be notified about your message even if they muted the group chat — their notification settings for you personally apply in this case.
If you want several people within a group chat to get instantly involved in the conversation, you may mention them in a message. They will be notified about your message, even if they muted the group chat — unless they've muted you personally, of course!
In busy groups, you can get new mentions or replies many times during a day – and it’s important not to miss those messages. So whenever this happens, you’ll notice straight away by the ‘@’ badge in the chat list:
When you have new replies/mentions in a group, you can instantly reach them by tapping the new ‘@’ button when inside the chat. This button will disappear once you’ve read all the relevant messages (you can also use a long tap on the button to quickly mark them as read).
Groups are ideal for sharing stuff with friends and family or collaboration in small teams. But they can also host very large communities – in fact, up to to , members can join any group. We have plenty of admin tools to help admins keep the peace in these virtual cities.
Hint: If you're doing something massively popular, consider creating a channel. Channels are a tool for broadcasting public messages to large audiences, and can have an unlimited number of subscribers.
Group admins can inform all members about important news using pinned messages that are displayed at the top of the chat screen. All members will get a notification — even if they muted ordinary messages from the group.
A pinned message
Groups admins can always edit pinned messages. This means your pinned message can contain an up to date list of links to important messages or other channels and groups.
It's easy to move your existing group chats to Telegram without any hassle. Simply send your friends an invite link. As soon as they get Telegram, they can instantly join your Telegram group just by following that link.
To get the link, first create a group on Telegram, then head to the ‘Add participant…’ section and tap ‘Invite to Group via Link’.
If you want a friendlier-looking link, groups can become public and get a short link, like t.me/publictestgroup. This way, anybody can view the group's entire chat history and join to post messages.
A public group
You can copy links to individual messages inside public groups. Anyone will be able to see them by opening their link – no Telegram account required. Tweet with confidence!
Better With Bots
Bots further extend the potential power of groups, making anything possible – from automated moderation to games, payments and beyond.
To help maintain order in your community, you can add admins with specific sets of privileges. Choose who among your trusted admins will be able to add new users, manage messages, block members, edit group info, or even add new admins.
Admins who don’t want to completely ban members from their groups can partially restrict their rights in order to stop behavior that's causing problems. You can put nasty users into read-only mode or maybe stop them from sending stickers or media for a certain period of time. You can do all of this with absolute precision:
Even robots can get in on the fun. With Bot API version , you can use admin bots to automatically impose temporary or permanent bans based on member actions. Check out the docs here to start building your robotic police force today.
Recent Admin Actions
When multiple admins are working with one group, it’s easy to get confused about which admin did what and when (or which admin bot has gone Skynet on your members). That’s why we've added a “Recent Actions” section to the admins page. This section stores a log of all service actions taken in the group in the last 48 hours and is visible to admins only.
Recent admin actions
Recent actions in groups also show messages that were deleted in the last 48 hours and the original versions of edited messages for the same period, so nasty behavior like self-deleted spam will no longer help anyone escape the admins’ wrath.
Stickers of the Group
Large groups with members and more can choose an official sticker set for all the members of the group to see and use while they're chatting in the group — without the need of adding it to their panels.
Group Video Calls
Today's update lets you turn on your camera or share your screen during Voice Chats in groups – on all devices, including tablets and desktops. This brings voice chats to a whole new level, ready for online classes, business meetings and family gatherings.
We're also introducing animated backgrounds, stylish message animations and more – enough to fill a second blog post.
Group video calls
Voice chats in any group can now seamlessly turn into group video calls – just tap the camera icon to switch your video on.
Tap on any video to make it fullscreen. If you pin a video, it will stay focused as new users join the call and turn on their cameras.
To start a voice chat, check the ⋮ menu in the profile of any group where you are an admin (on iOS, you will find a 'Voice Chat' button right in the group profile).
While audio-only participants are unlimited, video is currently available for the first 30 people who join the voice chat. This limit will increase soon as voice chats take on streaming games, live events and more.
In addition to your camera feed, you can also share your screen – or both at the same time.
To share your screen, tap ⋮ or ⋯ in any app and select it from the menu.
Noise suppression options
We've improved noise suppression in voice chats to keep everyone's audio clear and crisp, even when you're eating something crispy. We've also added a toggle to turn noise suppression off in settings – for those times when munching has meaning.
Tablet and desktop support
Tablets and computers have more screen space and offer more display options – tap to open the side panel and see a split-screen view of the video grid and list of participants, optimized for both portrait and landscape orientation.
Voice chats on desktop open in a separate window, so you can type and talk without minimizing anything. Desktop apps also have selective screensharing so you can broadcast an individual program instead of your whole screen.
When you're using a desktop app, anyone who starts sharing their screen will be pinned automatically. This is especially useful when small teams meet to coordinate their work.
That's it for today… No, wait. In fact, we're having two updates instead of one:

Migrating Existing Group Chats to Telegram
In addition to numerous great features in today's update, we’re happy to introduce a new way to move your existing group chats to Telegram — invite links for admins.
Each passing month brings more reasons to switch to Telegram from older services. Persistent history, instant full-text search, open platform, unlimited file sharing, rich link previews, native desktop apps, replies, mentions, hashtags and much more.
And yet, if you‘ve ever tried moving your existing group chats from other apps to Telegram, you know it was not easy. There was simply too much work to do and too much friction — you had to collect everyone’s usernames or phone numbers and add them to your group one by one. We're glad to announce that these days are over.
With invite links for groups, all you have to do is send a link to your existing group chat in any messaging service that your friends might still be using. As soon as they get Telegram, they can instantly join your Telegram group just by following that link.
Where do you get the link? Once you've created a group on Telegram, head to the "Add participant…” section and tap “Invite to Group via Link”. Easy!
