Hashtags

Having collected a lot of messages in the "Saved" section, over time it will become difficult for you to find the information you need, so it is recommended to use hashtags in Telegram. Thanks to hashtags, you can structure messages in your Saved.

There are many ways to add hashtags to posts.

  1. When creating a message, add a hashtag at the end, for example, #work.
  2. At the time of sending the message, hold tap for a few seconds on the "Saved" section, after which a window for typing messages will open. In this window, you need to type the desired hashtag.
  3. Edit the old post by highlighting it and add a hashtag to it.

Sorting messages by hashtags in Telegram is quite simple. To do this, use the search bar in the "Favorites" section and type the desired hashtag.

  • Click on the search icon in the top panel (in the mobile version, first you have to click on three vertical dots), after which a side menu with a search construction will open.
  • Enter the hashtag in this line, after which a list of messages with the desired hashtag will appear.
