Telegram Groups
Bots can work in Telegram group chats. In group chats, a bot will respond when
  • It is added to a group
  • A member joins the group
  • A member leaves the group
  • A new group is created with the bot as a member
  • A member replies to a bot message
You may use bots to manage your groups and communities, play games, and share information between amongst all the members of a group easily with scheduled or recurring Broadcasts.
A group is represented as a single User on BotDistrikt, no matter how many members are in it. Groups can be identified with the word (Group) in their names, and User Type group in their profiles.
(Group) in a user's name shows that this user is a group
User Type group shows that this user is a group

Reply to message

Inside a group, a Telegram bot only responds when one of its previous messages is Replied to
The bot only responds to "Replied to" messages
Tagging a bot by its username will not make the bot respond. Its message must be Replied to
When a bot provides quick replies in a group, clicking on a quick reply automatically "Replies to" the bot, thus making it easier to chat with in groups
Location quick replies do not work in groups
