Telegram Desktop. All Telegram apps are standalone and sync with the cloud so you can access your messages from any device – even if your phone is turned off.

While typing, messages save as cloud drafts, so you can finish writing and send them from another device.

Try the cross-platform Telegram Desktop, native Telegram for macOS, or Telegram Web in any browser.

Saved Messages. Every user has this default chat to bookmark important messages, set reminders, store media, or send files between devices.

Whenever you forward a message, ‘Saved Messages’ will be at the top of the list – after forwarding, tap the arrow button to show it in the original chat.

To quickly access the chat on Android, tap ☰ > Saved Messages. On iOS tap Settings > Saved Messages.

Storage Usage on Desktop. Telegram Desktop needs no extra space to run – and you never need to delete any media or memories from chats.

In Settings > Advanced > Manage Local Storage you can clear your cache, set size limits for cached media or automatically remove it after a certain period.

If you download a lot of large files from chats, check your Telegram Desktop folder in Downloads and remove the versions you’ve saved locally to free up extra space.

Clearing your cache or removing local files does not delete any media from your chats – you can re-download them at any time.
Move Chats From Other Apps

You can bring your chat history with all media and files to Telegram from other apps like WhatsApp, Line and KakaoTalk. Using the native export tool in those apps, share the exported file with Telegram, and then choose the Telegram chat where you want those messages to be added.

To move a chat from WhatsApp on iOS, open the Contact Info or Group Info page in WhatsApp, tap Export Chat, then choose Telegram in the Share menu.

From WhatsApp on Android, tap ⋮ > More > Export Chat, then choose Telegram in the Share menu.

Polls in Groups. Make decisions in your group or channel by opening the 📎 attachment menu and choosing ‘Poll’.

Polls are anonymous by default, but in groups you can disable 'Anonymous Voting' to show who voted for what. You can also allow multiple answers or make a quiz-style poll.
