How to download all photos and videos from a Telegram chat?
Most people think of Telegram as a mobile app but it has an independent web and desktop version too. Downloading media one by one might be annoying, but there is an easier way.
This platform allows you to send a selection of files grouped as an album but does not let you download all of them at once. Using a service like Google Drive will let you automatically save all the photos and videos sent to you but this is not the case with Telegram’s mobile app.
However, this can only be through the Telegram PC application, available for Linux, macOS, and Windows. Follow these steps:
- Download and install Telegram Desktop.
- Find the chat (private chat, group, or channel, it’s the same thing) from which you want to download videos and photos.
- Go to the chat menu and choose the option “Export chat history”.
Then, do the following: choose the contents you want to download; choose the export format (HTML if you want to view it yourself, JSON if you want to import it into another application), the path where it will be downloaded (make sure you have enough disk space) and, if you want something to be sent to you in a specific time period, choose the approximate dates.
You will find the result in the indicated directory, perfectly sorted in folders according to the type of file: photos, videos, files, even stickers.
