Unlike WhatsApp, Telegram is a highly versatile messaging platform. You can chat with other contacts as well as join groups and channels with whopping 200,000 members. However, this also means that you will be constantly bombarded by notifications from all these chats, groups, and channels. If you don’t want to receive any annoying notifications or prefer to read the messages only when you open them manually, you can go ahead and mute chats, groups, and channels on Telegram. Here’s how you can do it on the Telegram app for Android, iOS, desktop, or web version.
