Methods of Activating Comments on a Telegram Channel
As the channel admin, you can easily enable commenting on any post on your channel such as photos, stickers, texts, videos, etc.
There are two very practical ways to add commenting to your Telegram channel. The first method is to use the Discussion feature in the Telegram channel and the second method is to use Telegram bots. In the following, we will dicuss both in detail.
Activating Comments on Telegram Channels (new method without using bots)
If you are a channel administrator or admin and you want to enable this feature for your channel posts, follow the steps below.
Do not forget that before these steps, you must update your Telegram to the latest version! Otherwise, you will probably have trouble following the steps.
Log in to your Telegram channel and open your channel profile.
Then, if your phone is an iPhone, touch Edit at the top right of the image. If your phone is Android, touch the pencil (edit) icon.
Then enter the Discussion section.
Now you have to link a telegram group that you have created to the channel. At this point a list of the groups of which you are the admin will appear. You can select the group you want from this list or click Create a New Group to create a new comment group for your channel.
Telegram then asks you if you want this selected group to be linked to the channel you want. Click on Link Group (if you created a new group in the previous step and linked to your channel, in this step, Telegram will not ask you this question). After selecting a group, every post you publish on your channel will have a comment section and will be forwarded to your group.
After these steps, if your telegram has been updated and commenting on the Telegram channel is activated, you can see the comment section below the posts of that channel. This section is labeled Comments, and this text appears in it: "Leave a Comment". You can easily put your comments below this post.
After activation using this method, the ability to post comments will be created for all posts that you post in the channel then.
