Sometimes Telegram can get a bit much. You can get bombarded with messages from a group or channel at just the wrong time. But there’s a way out of this. Here’s how to mute chats, groups, and channels in Telegram.

Mute Chats, Groups, and Channels in Telegram for Android

Telegram’s Android app has the same method for muting one-on-one chats, groups, and channels. You can mute notifications for one hour, eight hours, or two days, or you can disable notifications forever.
