In Telegram, how do I add a contact?

You can add Telegram contacts in a few different ways, all of which require only a few basic steps to complete. As well as adding contacts from your device’s contact list, Telegram also lets you invite those who already have an account on the messaging app. Contacts can be added from any device to Telegram because it’s a cloud-based app.

In this post, we’ll teach you how to add contacts to Telegram on a variety of different platforms. We’ll also address some of the most frequently asked questions about this app.

How can I add people to my Telegram contact list?

Telegram lets you add contacts in a variety of methods. Remember that when you first create your Telegram account, everyone who is already in your device’s contact list and has an account will be instantly imported into your Telegram contact list.

It’s as simple as going to “Contacts,” finding the person you want to talk to, and tapping on their name. This will start a new conversation.

You can add people who are not in your contact list but whose phone numbers you know on Telegram. We’ll teach you how to accomplish it on various devices.
