Extension for Telegram Bot Integration [FREE]

Hello App Inventor community!

I'm excited to share an extension that I've developed for integrating Telegram Bot functionality into your App Inventor projects. This extension allows you to listen for updates from a Telegram Bot and trigger events in your app based on incoming messages.


  • Start and stop listening for Telegram updates
  • Trigger events when a new message is received
  • Improved thread handling for UI updates

How to Use:

  1. Add the extension to your project.
  2. Use the StartListener block to begin listening for updates.
  3. Handle incoming messages using the MessageReceived event.
  4. Stop listening using the StopListener block when necessary.

Important Notes:

  • Make sure to replace YOUR_BOT_TOKEN with the actual token of your Telegram Bot.
  • Ensure that your app has the necessary permissions, including INTERNET access.

Example Block:

For detailed instructions and documentation, please refer to the Telegram Bot API Documentation.

There is no block to reply at lest text message
To do that we need to use Telegram bot api and manual requests.
Using Get or Post http requests so you should provide the samples to send the message to user using it and with this features :-

  1. send a simple echo,
  2. send a message with formatting option ( see this Telegram Bot API )
