Force Join

Hey Bot Admins, get ready to level up with the 'Force Join' feature! It's not just about boosting your bot; it's about creating a vibrant space in your Telegram community. While users have always had the option to join free channels through the bot, here's the twist – now you can make it a prerequisite before they access your bot's premium features. Users eager to explore your premium services make a pit stop in the free channel first. It's an extra step, yes, but think of it as a secret weapon for admins. Growing your free channel is a golden ticket to a thriving community and impactful marketing – promotions, product drops, you name it; the possibilities are endless. Let's dive into how this savvy 'Force Join' move can take your Telegram journey to the next level!
