The 13 best bots you can add to Telegram
Some time ago, many of us fell victim to the charms of Telegram : encrypted messages, stickers, preview links, mentions and responses to specific messages in groups, support for Apple Watch … many of these features were already Telegram before WhatsApp (and some are still to come to this one).
But if there is an original functionality in Telegram above all is the possibility of interacting with bots . And as the API to create Telegram bots is public, there are few who have launched to create one. They are designed to be useful or programmed for pure fun, some are for personal use, others make more sense if they are used in groups … Either to chat with him on your own or add him to your group of friends, there is practically a bot for every occasion .
