Today we will tell you what Telegram channels are and how you can search for them. This is one of the tools that most differentiate the Russian application from other less advanced competitors, such as WhatsApp and derivatives, an option that is very useful for all websites and companies that want to have a secondary cover for their website.
We will start by explaining to you briefly and simply what exactly Telegram channels are and their main features. Then we will tell you how to find them in the application and how you can join them.
What are Telegram channels?
Telegram channels are a tool with which you can broadcast public messages to large audiences, and they have unlimited members. They are similar to the groups you create between users, but in the channels, only the administrators can write, while the rest of the users will be limited to reading what they post.
You can publish all kinds of content in these channels, from conventional messages to photos, links, and even. Unless you indicate otherwise, the channels will be open so that anyone who finds them can subscribe to them and start receiving what you write.
In this way, if, for example, you have a current website or a blog, you can create a new cover on Telegram by publishing each post there. And if you prefer, you can also create a thematic channel to share thoughts and links on specific topics with the audience. How you use it depends on each one.
You have to be clear that when you post a message on the channel, this message will appear signed with the channel’s name and not yours. In this way, you can collaborate with several people who have the status of the administrator to manage it. Also, once you delete a message from the channel, it will disappear from all users’ mobiles.
In addition, creating this type of channel is extremely simple since you have the option visible when you display the options menu. Once you do, you can invite users or tell them to search for your channel, which is precisely what we will explain now.
How to search Telegram channels
Telegram does not have a complete list of channels, so you will have to search for them from the conventional search engine of the application. When you open it, click on the magnifying glass icon in the upper right, and you will go to a screen where you can search for all the content you want.
Now type the term with which you want to search for a channel at the top of the search screen (1), and you will see that several results appear. The channels have the icon of a megaphone to the right of the name, and all you have to do now is click on the one you want to view (2).
Once you click on the name of a channel, you will access it and be able to see everything published so far. If you like what you see, click on the Join button, and you will join the channel so that Telegram will notify you of each new post it publishes. Once you’re inside, you’ll have a Mute button in case you don’t want notifications, but always have it in view for when there’s new content.
As you have seen, searching for Telegram channels is very easy, although since there is no official list with all of them, it is difficult to know if there are any that you do not know or may be interested in. To find out which channels have been created, you’ll have to search channel lists for terms like Telegram Channels in Google.
