Maybe Telegram isn’t the most used instant messaging app in the world right now, but it’s definitely one of the most versatile we can find, and maybe that’s why it continues to gain subscribers with every release of its usage figures. . One of its most useful functions, if we are heavy users, is the one that allows us categorize discussions into folders. Ranking for the most addicted that we can do in an easy way.
Classification of chats in folders came to Telegram in its version 6.0 and since then we can organize groups of chats, so that everything is more orderly and locatable because we can also combine this practice with the archive of unused chats or very old. We will show you how to do it in an easy way so that you can get into a very neat practice to maintain control over your application.
How to organize Telegram chats into folders
Folders in Telegram work in a certain way like the labels in Gmail: they allow you to categorize chats so that certain chats are included in one of these folders instead of having to search for the cat you are interested in from an endless list, as happens in the vast majority of messaging applications .
Telegram folders are fully customizable, so you you can choose the cats included in each, as well as the name of this folder. Folders are not exclusive, so chats included in one may also be included in another. To start using folders, you must first activate them. In Telegram for Android, the version that concerns us now, we will have to open the ‘hamburger’ menu, the famous ☰ menu and enter the section of Settings
We’ve already located the settings section where the folders are created, so we’re going to create one. The process is simple and starts by clicking on Create a new folder, and at that time Telegram will ask us for the name of the table. Do not fear because the name could be changed a thous and times in the future.
We create a folder, name it and choose the discussions that will be saved inside.
With the folder already created, you just have to choose the chats we have already opened that we will include in the newly formed folder. So we click on Add chats for Telegram to show us a list with selection boxes. You just have to decide, one by one, which cats to classify.
Once we have selected all the chats that we are going to archive, we click on save so that the folder already appears as active in our app and we can use it normally. The folders will be placed at the top of the chats and will work like nested menus, so it won’t take us more than a few minutes to familiarize ourselves with the new structure. Ready, there are no more, you can repeat this process as many times as you want to completely classify your Telegram.
