With the acceptance and globalization that Telegram has had, the number of friends or contacts that we have is almost uncountable. Thanks to this phenomenon, new needs have been generated when it comes to communicating. When you need to report something to many contacts at the same time or have conversations only with certain friends or family, it can be a challenge if you do not know some tools of the application.
Telegram has the groups, to be able to do all these tasks in a more organized way. These were created to send messages or files to many contacts at the same time, as well as receive their response in a single chat.
What are Telegram groups?
Telegram groups are a means of dissemination that bring together several users with common interests. Through this tool, you will be able to communicate multilaterally. That is, all members have the ability to interact with each other in a single chat window.
Groups are limited to 200,000 members and their chat history is persistent, although administrators have the option to delete it if they wish. Each group has a name, a description and the members that the creator has added. In turn, group participants can invite other users to join.
Groups are classified into public and private. Thus, in public groups, any Telegram user can read the messages even before joining. In contrast, in private groups messages cannot be viewed until the user joins the group. To do this, you must receive a link that includes an invitation code.
Difference with channels
In contrast to groups, channels establish a one-way communication channel, from administrators to channel followers. It works like a wall where only those who are administrators post or write. That is the main difference between groups and Telegram channels.
How to search for groups
Telegram has millions of groups of varied interests and the way to locate them is through the search bar integrated into the application. You just have to be guided by the indications that will be mentioned below:
