How to find and join Telegram channels and groups?

One of the primary use-cases that the Telegram app has created a niche userbase in is their channels and groups, which offer several unique features, flexibility as well as huge file sharing limits. You can have unlimited channel subscribers and as well as hundreds of thousands of public group members. Sharing large files (in GBs) to the groups and channels is also allowed, which is also a significant reason for the popularity of Telegram channels and groups..

There are many types of groups and channels you will find on Telegram, including from big companies, news channels, blogs, among several other sources as well as genres like tech, cooking. movies, and others — almost anything under the sun that you can find discussions about on the internet otherwise.

If you’re new to Telegram and can’t find your way through, here is how you can find and join a Telegram channel or group that is public. If a Telegram channel or group is set to private by the admin, you’ll need a direct link from them to join.
