How to look for contacts on Telegram?

The most important thing you should know about the app is that it can automatically integrate with your smartphone’s contact book and show those users who are already using the app. That is why there is no need to search for contacts, who are saved in your phone book — you can start communicating with them just after you’ve successfully installed the messenger and allowed it to have access to your contacts.

If you would like to add someone who is not saved in your contact list, please follow these easy steps.

  1. Open the program and find the search bar at the top of the main menu.

  2. Type the name, username or phone number in the search field and get the automatic results offered by the app.

That’s all! Now you can tap the contact and start communicating immediately. Feel free to add as many users as you need.
