In order to learn how to get started on Telegram, you need to access Google Play
- The first thing you should do is to go to Google Play or Apple Store.

- Once you have launched one of the above mentioned apps, you need to type “Telegram” in the search field. Once you have got it displayed with a very recognizable icon, click on it and access that page.
Now, you need to get this Telegram app installed

Once you have installed the app, go ahead and launch it
- After the installation of the app has been completed, you need to click on its icon on your smartphone.
After getting to see this congratulation, you need to click on the „Start Messaging“ text button
- Then, you will be asked to enter your mobile phone number. Type your phone number in the given field and click on “Continue.”
You will be asked to type your phone number in, and you should do it
