How to send contacts in Telegram within the app

When it comes to cross-platform messaging apps, the first one that comes to our mind is WhatsApp. There is no doubt, it is the most popular messaging app available, however, there are also a number of other alternatives, which you can try out. When it comes to alternatives to WhatsApp, the first one that comes to our mind is Telegram. There are a number of reasons why Telegram can be the perfect or a better alternative to  WhatsApp. The user base of Telegram is not as big as WhatsApp, however, there is no reason you shouldn’t at least try it out to just check whether your best friends are already on Telegram, so that you can start chatting with them.

Just like WhatsApp, you can even find the number of similar features available on Telegram, and you can even send contacts to people on Telegram. From time to time, we need to send the contact information of some people we know to our friends or relatives and in that situation, it isn’t at all a convenient idea to copy and paste the mobile number manually. The best option is to send the contact file directly so that the person on the other end can easily save it and communicate with the person or do anything else. When it comes to sending contact information, you can do that on Telegram as well, just like you can do it in WhatsApp.

So, without any further delay, let’s get started with how you can send contacts to people on telegram, right from within the messenger.

  1. My iphone 13 will not share contacts by choosing the contact and then trying to share using telegram. It will share if I start from within telegram but not from contacts.
