How to recover Telegram chat on Android

If you need to recover Telegram chats in Android, this is the appropriate tutorial section.

Let's see how to see archived chats again, how to recover deleted ones, and how to access Telegram photos and videos again. Lastly, I will give some useful "tips" for tracking the content of secret chats that are no longer available.

Recover archived Telegram chats

Have you archived a Telegram chat and now you don't know how to get it back? No problem, it is a simple operation.

The application archives archived conversations in a special section. However, it is a bit hidden by default.

To make the area dedicated to archived conversations visible again, move to the top of the list of active chats,  slide down starting from the top of the Telegram screen and the area dedicated to archived chats will be revealed to you.

At this point, touch it to access the conversations it contains and touch the chat of interest to view its messages again.

If you want, you can extract the chat (that is, make it available again between active chats) by swiping left on its preview. To extract several chats at the same time, long tap the first one, select the others with one tap, and then tap the button. Extract (The up arrow box ), located in the upper right.

If you want, you can also fix the area dedicated to archived messages, so as not to hide it anymore: to do this, make it visible as I explained above and swipe left on your preview. When you're done, you should see a notification message appear at the bottom of the chat panel.

Recover Deleted Telegram Chats

For some time now, Telegram has added an important feature that allows you to recover mistakenly deleted chats, in 5 seconds of successful removal.

Immediately after deleting a chat (be it a private conversation, group, supergroup, or secret chat), you should see a notification message at the bottom of the screen, which lasts exactly 5 seconds. To restore the deleted chat, you need to touch the item Cancel located in the message mentioned above.

Hurry to carry out this operation, since, once the 5 seconds have elapsed, the chat is considered definitively lost. When this happens, the only way to get your conversations back, unless you have decided to delete the chat also from your interlocutor's device (you can do this by placing the check mark next to the box Also delete for [X] ), is to ask the another person Re-message or take a screenshot of the conversation.

Recover Photos and Videos from Telegram

If it is your interest recover photos and Telegram videos after deleting them from chats (or after completely deleting the app from the device), I think I have some great news for you.

By default, the application saves the multimedia contents directly in a specific folder in the Android Gallery.

First start the app Photo (the icon of colorful pinwheel located in the device drawer) and, after sliding your finger from the left towards the center of the screen to access the main menu of the application, select the item Device folders from the panel that opens on the screen.

Most of it is done! At this point, you just need to locate the album Telegram and touch its icon to open it: the photos and videos downloaded through the application are there, ready to be viewed.

If this procedure is not effective, because, for example, you had manually deleted the photos and videos from the device memory, you can make a recovery attempt using some applications and some programs specific for this purpose.

Recover secret chats from Telegram

The secret telegram chats they are slightly different from "regular" conversations (private messages, groups, supergroups, etc.). The messages exchanged within these chats do not go through Telegram's servers and remain available only and only on the mobile phones or tablets involvedunless they are manually removed.

In other words, even if you have set up Telegram on multiple devices, a precise secret chat is saved only on the device from which you started it and is not moved to another place: this means that to retrieve those messages, you must necessarily have access to the device previously mentioned.

If not, there is not much you can do. At most, you can ask your interlocutor to open the chat started with you (if they still have it) and paste the messages that interest you, unless these have not been sent with the self-destruct timer or have not been manually deleted. If you have manually deleted the messages and your interlocutor no longer has them, unfortunately it is impossible to recover them. Sorry.

Note : Android does not allow taking screenshots within secret chats.
