Tips and Tricks

for the best messenger, for the best yourself

Chat Folder Icons. Add individual icons for your chat folders on Telegram Desktop and Telegram for macOS to organize everything from cats to cryptocurrency.
Media Editor: Luminosity Curves. Make advanced lighting adjustments or help specific colors stand out – with complete control over shadows, midtones and highlights.
Mini Thumbnails. See small versions of media messages right from the chat list. To take a quick look at the chat itself, press and hold to preview the chat.
Switch Profile Pictures. Quickly change back to a previous profile picture or video by tapping ‘Set as Main’ from your profile page.
Announce Messages with Siri. iOS users can set Siri to read incoming messages aloud in their bluetooth headphones. (Watch this video with sound on 🔉)
Media Editor: Crop / Rotate Video. Resize, rotate or flip videos before sending them.
Media Editor: Text. Add a description or make custom memes using multiple text styles.
Swipe Left to Reply. Respond directly to an individual message by replying. Replies are threaded, so you can keep conversations organized – tap to highlight and scroll to the original message. In group chats, replies send a mention notification that the user will see even if they have the chat muted.
SD Card Storage. Go to Settings > Data and Storage > Storage Path on Android to start saving your Telegram media and files to your SD Card. Storage Usage Settings let you free up space on your device – without deleting any messages or media.
Private Channels for Storage. Every Telegram user has unlimited cloud storage, and you can use themed private channels to store all your media and files.
