There is no doubt that today Telegram is one of the applications that provides users with the most features and makes things easier for us with its multiple options. One of them is the automatic responses , through which you will respond automatically when someone speaks to you or says something specific.
Auto Reply is a message that you set by default to give immediate replies to certain messages without having to type over and over again. They are very practical for companies, marketers, but also for you, and especially if you are in many groups or use the app a lot. We are going to comment on the different options that you have available so that you can use the one that suits you best and adapts to what you are looking for.
Schedule automatic replies
You can program, and you can do this from the application itself, responses that are sent automatically on the day and time you want, for example, if you want to congratulate someone on their birthday and you are afraid of forgetting, you want to remind someone of something or that occurs to you
How to do it:
- Enter the app
- Find the chat you are interested in
- In the text box, write the message you want
- Press for a few seconds on the send button (don’t make a single click because it will be sent)
- You will see the option to schedule the message
- press on it
- Select the date or time
- Give Send
- And it will be sent on the date you have indicated
It is a practical, simple and reliable functionality that you can carry out from the application itself, without the need to download external apps and with which you can prepare messages to be sent whenever you want.
An external app: AutoResponder for Telegram
Many people recommend AutoResponder for Telegram. It is an app that you can find in your mobile’s app store and that automatically responds to the personalized messages you receive on Telegram using a robot. You will find in it a large number of settings so that you can customize each automatic response and you can adapt it to your tastes on the fly.
You will be able to have a welcome message, use deferred scheduling, reply to specific messages and much more. It’s in beta for now, so there’s probably still a lot of room for improvement. You have to keep in mind that it is not part of Telegram and has nothing to do with the company.
Once you have downloaded it, the next steps are:
- Install the App
- Open and click on Start now
- Activate access to notifications by allowing them
- All in Add
- Write a message
- Choose between exact or similarity match
- Continue giving Ok
- Write the automatic response
- Choose recipient (people, groups or both)
- Confirm with Ok
The big drawbacks are undoubtedly its advertising and that they will try to get you to upgrade to the premium version no matter what. If you do not opt for this paid version, you will not only see ads, but your messages will look bad, with a message that you will not like your contacts to see. However, if you want to use it by paying for it and it convinces you because it is what best suits what you need, you can try it. Try it with its 7-day trial and if it doesn’t convince you, cancel the subscription before paying for it.
It’s not my preferred option, but it seems to be one of the few that does this, since the app itself doesn’t have its own automatic response function other than scheduling messages that we talked about earlier.
You can also choose to use a robot to set up replies for group messages or channels, like SlackRobot, although it’s not the easiest thing in the world and it’s not meant for individual messages. All this in the absence of Telegram being encouraged to implement the function of autoresponder messages.
