What are Telegram bots?

Telegram bots are (often) AI programs that run within the app. They are like Telegram accounts, except that they are run by software. They serve a huge variety of functions like integrating with work-related apps and organizing gatherings. 

In essence, they make life easier and more fun for us.

How to use Telegram bots?

1. Find it

Locate the bot in Telegram by searching the username of the bot in the app’s search bar.

Open the app on your phone or computer and enter the name of the bot into the search bar. Pay attention to this step. You should select the option with the same username as the text you entered into the search bar. Not the display name.

Multiple accounts can have the same display name, but only one account can have a particular username.

2. Talk to it and get the ball rolling

Start a conversation with the bot in Telegram to activate it.

Next, initiate a conversation with the bot. And that's pretty much it, really. Now, let’s take a look at the top 10 Telegram bots of 2021, shall we?
