Telegram channels are places in which you can broadcast public messages from large audiences, and they have unlimited number of members. They are similar to the groups that you create between users, but in telegram channels only the administrators will be able to write, while the rest of the users will only be able to read what’s posted.
In these Telegram channels you can publish all kinds of content, from conventional messages to photos, links and even files. Telegram channels will be open so anyone who finds these groups can subscribe.
