The popular messaging app Telegram offers a handy yet little-known feature – the ability to set reminders and notifications to yourself right within chats. It provides a simple scheduling tool accessible to all Telegram users.
Creating Reminders Through Telegram is Straightforward
To set reminders on Telegram, go to Settings and open your Favorites chat. This acts as a draft space for composing messages.
Enter the text you want as a reminder notification. Press the send button and choose “Set Reminder” to schedule it. Then pick a time for Telegram to deliver the message back to you.
The process quickly sets self-notifications without installing additional apps. Telegram marks these reminder messages with a calendar icon, similar to regular texts.
Pinning Favorites Chat Enables Quick Access
With Favorites housing the reminder tool, consider pinning it to the top of your chats list for easy access. This lets you rapidly set notifications from anywhere in Telegram.
The pinned Favorites chat persists as you switch between devices, ensuring consistency in creating reminders.
Customizable and Cross-Platform Reminders
Telegram’s reminders can include text and ship at the user’s chosen times. Their delivery crosses platforms, reaching you whether on mobile or desktop.
While basic, Telegram’s typing-free scheduling fills a need for customizable notifications without new accounts or apps. It capitalizes on the messenger’s strengths as an install base and notification channel.
