Telegram announced a big and welcome update to all Telegram versions. An update to the bot API wich makes interacting with bots super-easy. In most cases you won’t even have to type anything, because bots will provide you with a set of custom buttons.

In addiction to that Telegram announced first bots that can be used:

  • @ImageBot – send this bot a keyword and it’ll provide you with a relevant picture.
  • @TriviaBot – test your trivia knowledge or add to groups to compete with friends.
  • @PollBot – add this one to group chats to create polls.
  • @RateStickerBot – discover and rate new stickers.
  • @AlertBot – set a time and this bot will send you a reminder for anything you like.
  • @HotOrBot – find friends with this Tinder-like dating bot.
  • @GithubBot – track GitHub updates.
  • @StoreBot – find new bots and rate them

Bots in Telegram will look different from human users: their chat and profile screens have a slightly different UI and they don’t have access to all messages by default when added to groups.

Bots can now provide you with custom keyboards for specialized task.
