Best Telegram bots

More and more services are getting the ability to install bots. You will see that not only in Telegram, but also on Facebook Messenger, Slack, and Peach. Thanks to bots you can put things into action, without leaving the app. You can “talk” to bots, which you add to services as add-ons, in command language, whereupon they perform automated tasks for you.

On Telegram, there are already some bots available. The service has put a few standard in the app, but you can also download them from third parties. Anyone with programming knowledge can make them and make it available, so there is already a lot available. Most are not useful yet, just bland or uninteresting, so we chose the best for you. The bots can be used separately or can be added to group discussions.

1. Giphy

Nowadays indispensable in any self-respecting chat application: gif images. Recently, Telegram added gifs from Giphy to the default app. That means you can post gif images without having to download anything in any conversation. Type @gif in a conversation and put it behind a keyword to transform the moving images on screen. By choosing in the window, you add gifs to a chat.

2. Wikipedia

Are you in a conversation with someone and you are not agreeing on a famous person or a location? With Wikipedia Search you can find the information. Type @wiki in a chat with a keyword and you get an instant link to the (English) Wikipedia page with a short paragraph of text with it. Also, this bot is standard in Telegram.

3. IMDb

The bot of IMDb is the last standard bot in Telegram that we address in this list. You talk about a film and want to see how it scores on the biggest Internet Movie Database, type @IMDb and title. Wait a moment before sending, a window with titles to choose from will appear. Tap it to view the synopsis and see the score. Immediately a link appears to the trailer of the film.

4. Netflix News

Netflix is a fine video service, but the search for movies can be a lot better. Everything is mixed up, so you can not always see what movies were recently added at a glance. With Netflix News-bot this is possible. After installing you can set your location (via the command /region), then you will always be sent to the movies that have been newly added. So you automatically stay up to date.
