How to find groups in Telegram
The fastest way to find and join a Telegram group is to join a Telegram channel to receive an invitation. Perhaps a friend told you about a Telegram channel where people provide group invites. Assuming you are using the desktop version of the Telegram app, here’s what you need to do:
Launch the Telegram app on your desktop.
In the top left corner, type the name of the group and press “Enter”.
Under “Global search results”, you will see a list of all the strings that match the name you entered.
Click on the channel of your choice and select “Join Channel”.
You will 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.
If you don’t want to search for group links in Telegram channels, there is another way to search for groups. You can visit Telegram’s online group directory and browse groups. Find the one that matches your interests, click on the group and select “Join group”.
How to find group IDs in Telegram
If you are already a member of several Telegram groups, you may want to create your own group and register your group ID. To do this, you must first create your Telegram bot. Here’s how:

Select “Get Started” and follow the on-screen instructions to create your bot.
