Add new chats
"Add a channel" and "Add a group" buttons in your Telegram bot? Don't worry, there's an easy solution! Learn how to add new channels and groups to your bot even if the buttons don't work.
Before troubleshooting any issues with adding a new channel or group to your bot, make sure to check our "Create a paid Telegram channel or group" help article for step-by-step instructions. If you're still experiencing difficulties, our troubleshooting guide covers some common reasons why the "Add channel" and "Add group" buttons may not be working for you.
If you're having trouble adding a channel or group to your bot through the "Add a channel" and "Add a group" buttons, don't worry - it may be due to your Telegram client. Some clients/devices don't support these buttons, but there are other ways to add channels and groups to your bot.
Try using a different device, such as a mobile device or desktop, or try using Telegram's web client. These buttons are designed to automatically grant your bot the necessary permissions, making it the easiest way to add channels and groups.
If these buttons still don't work, you can manually add your bot to your Telegram channel or group as an admin. The bot will detect the chat and add it to its database, but make sure to grant the bot sufficient access to your channel or group.
By following these troubleshooting steps, you'll be able to add channels and groups to your bot and enjoy all the benefits it has to offer.
