How to Add a Telegram Chat Shortcut to Android Home Screen

You can add a Telegram chat shortcut to the home screen of your Android phone.

Hitting the shortcut will take you to the chat directly, making the shortcut a quick way to access a conversation.

Let’s see how. The below steps apply for both group and contact chats.

Add Telegram Chat Shortcut to Android Home Screen

Here are the steps:

Open the Telegram app and open the conversation you want.

If the chat of the contact you prefer does not exist, hit the Pencil icon at the bottom right and tap the contact you like.

Hit the name at the top.

Tap the three vertical dots at the top right and select Add to Home Screen.

If you prefer to manually add the shortcut to the home screen, use the icon you see in the popup. Otherwise, hit the “Add to Home screen” button. I’m using the button here.

That’s it. You can see the shortcut now on the home screen.

To remove this shortcut, long-press it, drag, and drop it on the Remove at the top.

That’s all.
