Steps to adding a contact on Telegram

First of all, if you have that person’s number in your contacts on your phone, and if they also have an account on Telegram, their number will automatically be added to your Telegram contacts. So, if you have their number saved on your phone, just go to your Telegram contacts and search for that person there. You can start chatting with them right away if their number is already in your Telegram contacts.

If you have that person’s number, but they are not already in your phone’s contacts, here’s how to add them to Telegram.

  • First, open the Telegram app on your device.
  • When the home page opens up you will be able to see a little pencil button at the bottom right corner of your screen. Click on it to proceed.
  • This is going to open up a new window on your screen. Find the plus button somewhere on that screen and tap on it.
  • You are now able to add a new contact to Telegram. Type in their name and number, and when you are done click on the checkmark at the top right corner of your screen. By doing this, you are just adding a new contact to your Telegram account you will not have that contact saved to your phone.
