How to Disable Notifications on Telegram

Let’s see how to disable notifications on Telegram. You’ll also see the steps to turn on or off Telegram bubble notifications.

I use the Android phone, iPhone, Web, and Desktop here. Let’s begin.

Disable Telegram Notifications

iPhone

Launch the Telegram app and tap Settings at the bottom.

Select Notifications and Sounds and tap the type of chat you want to turn off notifications.

The available options are Private Chats, Group Chats, and Channels.

Turn off Show Notifications, and that’s all.

Turned off Show Notifications
  • Save

To enable notifications, turn on the option mentioned above.

You can add a chat, channel, or group as an exception in Telegram and if you do that, you’ll get notifications from that alone.

Beneath the Show Notifications, you can see the Add an Exception. Hit it and tap the one you like. Tap Add at the top right.

That’s it.

For removing all exceptions at once, tap Delete All Exceptions. Hit Delete All in the popup.

Here’s an alternate way to do this:

Launch the Settings app and select Telegram.

Tap Notifications and turn off Allow Notifications.

That’s it. To enable the Telegram notifications, turn on the option mentioned above.

Android

Open the Telegram app and hit the three horizontal lines at the top left.

Select Settings > Notifications and Sounds.

To turn off notifications for private chats, turn off Private Chats.

For group chats, turn off Groups and disable Channels for channels.

Turned off notifications for all
  • Save

That’s it.

You can add someone as an exception. In other words, after disabling the notifications for a particular chat type (for instance: channels), you can add a single channel as an exception. When you do that, you’ll get notifications from that channel alone.

I’m doing this for channels. but the steps are the same for private chats and groups. Here’s how you can do that:

Tap Channels, which you’ve seen above. Hit Add an Exception and tap the channel you wish. Hit Done at the top right.

That’s it.

You can remove all exceptions and for that, you need to tap Delete All Exceptions and hit Delete in the popup.

Let’s see the alternate method to do this:

Press the Telegram app to see the “Info” icon. Tap it and you’ll be on the Telegram App info screen.

Tap Notifications. You can see All Telegram notifications.

All Telegram notifications
  • Save

Turn it off and that’s it.

To enable notifications, turn on the option mentioned above.

Web

Open the Telegram Web.

Hit the three horizontal lines at the top left.

Click on Settings > Notifications.

Here, you can turn off notifications for the type of chat you prefer.

I turned off Notifications for private chats, Notifications for groups, and Notifications for channels.

That’s it. From now on, no notifications will appear for chats, groups, and channels.

Desktop

Open the Telegram Desktop app and click on the three horizontal lines at the top left.

Select Settings > Notifications and Sounds.

In the Notifications for chats section, you can find Desktop notifications.

Disable it, and that’s it.

Whenever you want notifications, enable the option mentioned above.

Turn On or Off Bubble Notifications on Telegram

Bubble notifications are default turned off for Telegram for Android. You can turn it on by following these steps:

Open the Settings app.

Hit Apps > See all X apps. X is a number.

Find the Telegram app and hit Notifications.

In the Conversations section, you can see Bubbles. Tap on it, and you can view these three options:

Bubbles options
  • Save
  • All conversations can bubble
  • Selected conversations can bubble
  • Nothing can bubble.

Self-explanatory, right? To disable bubble notifications, choose the latter. Otherwise, choose any of the remaining two options as per your wish.

That’s it.

If you have enabled it, you can see a bubble when you receive a message.

Tap it to see the chat and reply to the message if you wish.

And you can drag the bubble and drop it anywhere you want.

To remove it from the screen, drag and drop it on the X icon, which you see at the bottom of the screen.

You can also remove it by tapping the bubble, selecting Manage, and hitting Dismiss bubble.
