How to Reply to a Message on Telegram

In this post, you’ll see the steps to reply on Telegram to a particular message.

I use the Web, Desktop app, and app (iPhone and Android). Let’s start.

Reply to a Telegram Message (iPhone)

Here are the steps to quote on Telegram:

  1. Open the Telegram app.
  2. Open a contact or group chat you want.
  3. Long press text you wish to quote. It can be yours or someone else’s. Remember, not only text, but you can also quote media.
  4. Choose the “Reply” option from the menu.
  5. Please type in your response and send it.

That’s it.

Here’s an alternate method: You can reply to a particular message by swiping it to the left. The rest are the same as above.

Reply to a Message on Telegram (Android)

That’s it.

Here’s an alternate method: You can reply to a particular message by swiping it to the left. The rest are the same as above.

Notes:

  • Tap on the quoted message will take you to the message you’ve quoted.
  • How to cancel the quoted message before sending it? Tap X in quoted message preview, and that’s it.
  • How to quote a part of a Telegram message? There is no option for that.

That’s it.

Reply to a Specific Message on Telegram Web or Desktop

Here are the steps:

Open the Telegram Web or Desktop.

Hit your preferred group or contact chat and right-click on the message you wish.

Click on the Reply option and type your message in the compose box at the bottom.

Hit the Send icon, and that’s it.

Here’s an alternate method:

Open the Telegram Desktop app and click on the chat (group or contact) you like.

Double-click the message you send or receive that you wish to quote.

Alternatively, hover over the received message and hit the Reply option if you’re on the group chat.

Type your message in the compose box and hit the Send icon.

That’s all.

Reply Privately on Telegram

You can’t reply privately on Telegram. But you can send a private message to a group member using these steps.

Remember that these steps apply to the app (iPhone and Android), Web, and Desktop. Here are the steps:

Open the group chat and hit the member’s profile picture beside their message on the conversation.

Alternatively, you can hit the group name at the top and find the member. Once you find the participant, hit their name.

On Android, you can see the Message icon. Tap it, and you’ll be on the chat screen of that person. Please type your message and send it.

On iPhone, you can view the Message button. Hit it, and you’ll be on that person’s chat screen. You need to type your message now and hit the Send icon.

On the Desktop app, click on the Send Message option. You’ll be on that person’s chat screen. Type the message and click on the Send icon.

On the Web, type your message and click on the Send icon.

That’s all.
