Greetings, fellow Telegrammers! Are you tired of speaking into the void? Do you long for the sweet sound of engagement on your channel? Well, you’re in luck because we’ve got the inside scoop on how to enable comments on your public or private Telegram channel. It’s time to take your channel from a one-way street to a bustling bazaar of ideas and conversation. We know what you’re thinking, “But enabling comments is such a hassle!” Fear not, dear reader, because we’re about to make it as easy as stealing candy from a baby (not that we condone such behaviour). So sit back, relax, and get ready to take your Telegram channel to the next level.

Step 1: Edit Your Channel

The first step is to edit your channel. Don’t worry, you won’t be making any major life changes here, just a few minor tweaks. Click on your channel, and click on the edit (pencil icon) to bring up the Edit page. If you are on desktop, click on the three dots and select “Manage Channel.”

Step 2: Select Discussion

Now it’s time to get to the good stuff. Click on “Discussion” in the menu. You are almost there!

Step 3: Create a Linked Group

Now, create a linked group. This will allow your followers to comment on your posts. Just click on “Add Group,” and create a new group. Here’s a pro tip: make the linked group private as well, and only invite yourself. This way, you can archive it away and not get confused between the group and the channel.

Legacy Alternatives

If you’re feeling nostalgic for the old days of Telegram or want to explore alternative options, you may have come across comment bots such as @Commentbot or @Discussbot. However, we don’t recommend using these options since the comments don’t work as an inbuilt feature on Telegram. Instead, they bring users to an external page to leave comments. This can be confusing for your followers and may not provide the seamless commenting experience that you’re looking for.


Can I comment on a channel if an admin has blocked me?

No, you cannot comment on a channel if an admin has blocked you. To ensure that you can participate in the conversation, make sure to adhere to the rules of the channel and avoid being blocked.

If I forward a commented post to someone outside the channel, will they be able to see the comments?

No, if you forward a commented post to someone outside the channel, they will not be able to see the comments unless they are also part of the channel. Keep this in mind when sharing posts with others.

And voila! You’re now the master of engagement on Telegram. Sit back, relax, and watch those comments roll in. Who knows, your channel might become the hottest spot in town (or at least on Telegram). So enable those comments and let the party begin!
