Telegram Chat Features

Silent Messages

If you don’t want to disturb someone late at night but also want to remind them about something by sending a text, you can do so on Telegram. The app has a feature called “Silent Messages” which lets you send messages without notification sound.

1] Open Telegram and head to the chat window to whom you want to send a message.

2] Type your message and then press and hold the send button for approx. three seconds.

3] This will show you two options- Schedule message and Send without sound.

4] Tap on the second option and your message will be sent without notifying the receiver.

Schedule Messages

We already use email scheduling a lot, but it’s awesome to see Telegram bringing this feature for messages as well.

1] Just like the above-mentioned steps, open any chat and type a message.

2] Tap and hold the send button and you will see two options.

3] Tap on the Schedule message option and set your time.

The message will then be sent at the scheduled time.

Edit Sent Messages

It happens to all of us when we send a message, and within a few seconds realize a typo in that? Well, Telegram has an edit button to save you from embarrassment.

1] Go to the message that you want to edit.

2] Select the message and tap on the “pen” icon at the top.

3] Then you can easily edit the sent message.

It will show an “Edited” label after you edit it and also, you can edit messages up to 48 hours of sending them.
