Hello reader, I am sure you must be familiar with the social media platform Telegram. If not, then there is no need to worry because hobo.video is here to get you started with Telegram and this blog post would be a step-by-step guide to create bots and let you know some tips and tricks as well. We will also be letting you know about the different bots on Telegram that you must know about.
What is Telegram
Firstly, let me give you a basic idea of what this telegram application is and how you can make the best use out of it.
Telegram, “It is a messaging app with a focus on speed and security, it’s super-fast, simple and free. You can use Telegram on all your devices at the same time — your messages sync seamlessly across any number of your phones, tablets, or computers. Telegram has over 500 million monthly active users and is one of the 10 most downloaded apps in the world.
With Telegram, you can send messages, photos, videos, and files of any type (doc, zip, mp3, etc), as well as create groups for up to 200,000 people or channels for broadcasting to unlimited audiences which makes it different from the other social media applications. You can write to your phone contacts and find people by their usernames. As a result, Telegram is like SMS and email combined — and can take care of all your personal or business messaging needs. In addition to this, it supports end-to-end encrypted voice and video calls, as well as voice chats in groups for thousands of participants.”
Another advantage of Telegram is the privacy it offers, if you are a part of some group then no one can see your phone number but only your name.
Features of Telegram
- It provides a very fast messaging service.
- Unlike other applications, telegram has no limit on file sharing.
- It has a mixture of bots and channels as well.
- People can use Telegram on the web without connecting to the mobile.
- It is a cloud-based application.
How is Telegram different from WhatsApp?
The first and foremost feature of Telegram that makes it different and better from WhatsApp would be its feature of multiple device login even without a mobile connection.
Telegram supports file sharing up to 2GB which is not the case with WhatsApp which has a limit in megabytes(MB). Also, while sharing a file/image via WhatsApp it compresses the quality whereas this is not the case with Telegram.
While using WhatsApp, you must’ve encountered the problem while creating groups that have a limit of maximum 256 members. Telegram has an advantage over WhatsApp in this case because it gives an allowance of up to 2 lakh people to be added to a group.
In WhatsApp, the users get an option of saving the data on Google Cloud or iCloud but for Telegram users, it provides free cloud storage for its users.
Telegram is compatible with almost every platform such as Android, iOS, Windows Phone/ PC, Linux OS, and every other browser as well.
Monetization for Telegram and WhatsApp
Both the applications have the similarity of monetizing the platform but here too they differ in a way. For WhatsApp users, they need to open a WhatsApp business account to establish their own business on the platform and monetize their work and it charges for the sales made through the business application. Whereas for Telegram users, it was said that some paid features would be introduced for business and premium users of Telegram soon.
What are Bots?
After a long wait of talking about Telegram and its features and the differences with other social media applications like WhatsApp, now we’ll be talking about Bots and their uses along with letting you know what are the best bots on Telegram.
Let’s start gaining knowledge already, shall we?
Do you know what a bot is?
Bots are the most popular feature that Telegram provides, want to know why?
Telegram introduced Bots in the year 2015 and since then they’ve been trending. Let me give you an example for better understanding, you must be a YouTube user, right? So, there you subscribe to different YouTube channels and you get notified about the new content that is posted on the channel. The same is the case with Telegram.
Anyone on Telegram can create their channels and can even send broadcast messages to other people.
With this, you must’ve gotten a basic idea about Telegram Bots. If you’re still wondering then watch this video.
