The best part? Setting them up can already be done in a few steps. In fact, you don't even have to write the auto-replies yourself. There is a list of 8 inspiring auto-replies included in this blog.

So, sit back and relax.


The benefits of using a Telegram auto-reply

With a welcome message for Telegram, you can:

Customers will get an instant response, even outside business hours.

Improve customer satisfaction

By sending a clear auto-reply message, customers know what to expect from your team and will not be up to any surprises.

How to set an an auto response on Telegram

I'll get straight to the point: it's not possible to set an auto-reply directly in Telegram. The app itself doesn’t offer this feature, which is why you need a third-party application to make it happen.

There are multiple apps that you can choose from, each with its own specialty. Since you're using Telegram for your business, I recommend you to set up an auto-reply with an omnichannel communication platform, such as Trengo. Here you can manage your Telegram messages together with your other channels in one view, work together with colleagues on Telegram messages, and automate conversations with auto-replies.

It all starts with setting up your Telegram account in Trengo. This can be done within minutes, and it allows you to manage Telegram messages from your Trengo inbox.

After this, it’s time to set up the auto-reply itself. Here's how:

1. Go to Trengo’s settings → automation → auto-replies.

2. Click on the green + sign.

3. Select Telegram as a channel.

4. Decide when the auto-reply should be triggered. You can choose between the following instances:

  • During business hours
  • Outside of business hours
  • On specific days (for example: only on weekends)

5. Write your auto-reply message.

6. Click ‘Save’.
