One of the reasons Telegram is beloved by so many of its users is because they can join public or private groups. There are countless Telegram groups available, and some of them contain hundreds of thousands of users.

You can join a Telegram group to keep up with a topic you’re interested in and post thoughts and updates. But how do you find all these awesome Telegram groups? In this article, we’ll explain how to find Telegram groups in different ways. And we’ll also address a few other relevant questions.

What is a Telegram Group?

Before we dive into our tutorials, let’s first discuss Telegram groups. Telegram offers users the option to join Groups or channels. Channels are essentially chats that allow an unlimited number of users, participants can’t see other member, and there isn’t a lot of communication between users.

Groups are more exclusive, allowing only 200,000 members. Telegram Groups show you a list of members and let interact with them.

It’s easy to tell the difference between the two by the member count (if there are more than 200,000, it’s a channel), and the Online status. If you see the number of participants at the top of the conversation, you’re in a Telegram group.

Channels are also a lot easier to find than Groups. Typically, the former are found with a simple search. Groups, however, are found by word-of-mouth, other platforms, or in Telegram Channels.

Now that we’ve covered the basics, let’s talk about proven ways to find a Telegram Group.

How to Find Groups in Telegram

The quickest way to find and join a Telegram group is by joining a Telegram channel to get an invitation. Perhaps a friend told you about a Telegram channel where people provide group invitations. Assuming that you’re using the desktop version of the Telegram app, here’s what you do:

  1. Launch the Telegram app on your desktop.
  2. In the top left corner, type in the name of the group and hit “Enter.”
  3. Under “Global search results,” you’ll see the list of all the channels that correspond with the name you’ve entered.
  4. Click on the channel you want and select “Join Channel.”

You’ll see the number of subscribers at the top of the screen. Look for group invitation links. When you find the group link, click on it and select the “Join Group” option.

There is another way to find groups if you don’t want to search for group links in the Telegram channels. You can visit the Telegram group directory online and browse groups. Find the one that matches your interest, click on the group, and select “Join Group.”

How to Find Group IDs in Telegram

If you’re already a member of several Telegram groups, perhaps you want to create your own group and save your group’s ID. To do that, you first need to make your Telegram bot. Here’s how:

  1. Open Telegram, and in the search, box enter “BotFather,” which is the official Telegram bot.
  2. Select “Start” and follow the prompts on the screen to create your bot.
  3. Once you do, you’ll get the HTTP API Token which you should copy.

After you save your token, create a new Telegram group, add your bot, and send at least one message to the group. Then go to this page and enter your token to retrieve the group ID.

How to Find Group Links in Telegram

If you’re the Telegram group owner and want to share it with other people, you can send them the invitation link. Here is how to send them the link to join:

  1. Open the Telegram group where you’re the administrator.
  2. Click on the name of the group at the top of the screen.
  3. Select “Add member,” and then “Invite to Group via Link.”
  4. Select “Copy Link” or “Share Link” depending on how you want to forward the link.

If you change your mind, you can select the “Revoke Link” option. This will disable the existing link, and everyone who has it won’t be able to join the group anymore.

If you need to copy the link to the group you’re in but don’t own, follow steps 1 and 2 and then long-press the “Invite Link” of the group to copy.

How to Find Telegram Groups on iPhone and Android

Even though Telegram for desktop is super useful, most people use the Telegram mobile app. If you’re using a smartphone, you can download the latest version of the cloud-based chat app from the App Store or Google Play Store.

  1. Telegram for iPhone works the same way as the desktop version. Once you launch the app on your smartphone, you’ll see the search box on top of the screen, where you can search for channels.
  2. Type the group’s name or a general description of what you’re looking for in the search box.
  3. Tap on Join at the bottom of the page to become a member.

The top of the results list will show groups that you have yet to join, while the lower portion will show activity in the groups you’ve already joined.
