A good idea you can implement is to create a news feed in your Telegram account, so you can quickly and easily follow the latest news of the day. If you don’t know how to do this, don’t worry! Below we explain the steps to create a bug-free stream in Telegram Messenger. Let’s get started.
Learn step by step how to quickly and easily create a current news feed in your Telegram account
If you want to stay updated, you can create a content feed of updated messages in your Telegram account. To do this, follow the steps we provide below:
The IF This Then That application is a computer portal that gives you automatic access to program activities on various platforms. So, it is possible that news articles that you identify in your Telegram account settings appear. To do this, the instant messenger must be linked to various portals via IFTTT. The following sections describe how to perform this procedure:
- The first thing you need to do is register on the IFTTT platform. To do so, enter the URL using the familiar browser https://ifttt.com/ and click on the Start button.
- Next, you need to select the account you wish to register with: Google, Facebook or Apple. If you don’t have any of these items, don’t worry because you can select the Check In link to create a user with a new email address.
- Then you must enter the registration details for your chosen option and click Next.
Once you’re logged into the IFTTT platform, log into Telegram and create a new channel to record the message flow. To do this, follow the instructions below:
- Open the application and go to the home page.
- Then select the icon in the top left corner, represented by three horizontal lines.
- Press the New Channel button.
- Choose a name for the new channel and add a description if desired. When you are ready, click the Create button.
- A new window will appear where you need to select the Public Channel field and then the link that allows other users to find you. If you don’t want to be found, choose a link that is hard to find. If the link is not available, a red sign will appear indicating that the description must be changed.
- When you are finished, press the SAVE button. If you wish, you can add guests or select the SKIP option.
Now you need to connect the platform to Telegram. It can be created using the IFTTT bot, @ifttt. Therefore, you should continue to work with this manual:
- Log in to your browser and enter https://telegram.me/ifttt.
- Then the SEND MESSAGES window will appear and you must click on the SEND MESSAGES option. This will take you to your Telegram channel where the bot will be activated. You can also do this by writing directly to the @ifttt channel.
- Press the tool at the bottom of the START screen to complete the process.
The next step is to authorize the robot as a channel manager, so here’s what you need to do:
- Enter a channel and press the button at the top of the screen to access the information.
- Once the menu is displayed, you need to select 3 items and then select Channel Management.
- Navigate to the Administrators option and click on it.
- Then enter the robot name @ifttt and click OK.
- Select the desired rights and click on SAVE. This way the bot can send messages to the channel like an administrator.
You now need to connect to the IFTTT platform and select Really Simple Syndication or RSS. This format is used to distribute the messages you wish to subscribe to in an updated form. You must perform the following procedure:
- After you sign up for IFTTT at https://ifttt.com/explore, you need to go to the My Applets tab. You can find it at the top of the screen.
- Then select New Applet or To Create, depending on what you have in English or Spanish.
- You will find two columns that act as conditional variables. In the first one, which is called Yes this or Este, you have to click on it and select the RSS feed button.

- Then in the Message or Message Text field, leave everything as it is, or change the expression as you see fit.
- Finally, deselect Enable Web Page Preview or Enable Web Page Preview and click Create Action.
with add-on Bot
One of the main advantages of Telegram is the ability to add bots to user groups. These small programs perform automated tasks that help improve the email service. Therefore, it’s a good idea to include the Feed Reader robot in your instant messaging system to maintain a consistent flow of information. If you want to know how to do this, follow the steps below:
- Enter the URL using your usual browser https://telegram.me/TheFeedReaderBot.
- Then click on the Send Message button. This step automatically opens the application on your computer or mobile device, depending on the device you are using. You can also do this by going to your news feed and adding @TheFeedReaderBot as an administrator.
- Choose the START tool below. The other option you have is to write the /start command in the bot.
- When the list of commands appears, you will find all the commands that can be executed in the robot. You must first add the RSS service, to do this type /add followed by an underscore and enter the name of the portal you wish to receive news from at the end. For example, you can B. /add_@internet_paso_a_paso to receive the latest technology news from our website.
Note that this robot has both free and paid versions. So, in this last option, you will find more tools that will help you to be better informed because it visits more often the sites mentioned.
Follow the news channel
For your news content stream to be successful, you need to subscribe to specialized channels. This will help you maintain an organized structure of different topical subjects. For example, it’s a good idea to join our Telegram channel to get all the latest news on the best deals and coupons to save money on technology and computers every day. If you want to read our daily posts, you should search for the user @Internet_step_to_step or click on the link https://t.me/internet_paso_a_paso. If you want, you can add our Twitter user, @InternetPaP_, to the bot @TheFeedReaderBot to get all the information you want. You can also add general news feeds, such as @newsspain, and if you like sports, you can watch football news at https://t.me/Football_Tennis_Sports_News.
