Telegram’s new Inline Bots

Telegram today announced inline bots in their blog post.

[Why I am writing this blog post ? I was eagerly waiting for this feature]

From Telegram blog post –

With the new inline mode, bots become omnipresent and can be used as a tool in any of your chats, groups or channels – it doesn’t matter, whether the bot is a member or not. Inline bots can help you with dozens of different tasks, like quickly sending relevant GIFs, pictures from the Web, YouTube videos, Wikipedia articles, etc.

So now you can use any bot in the group even without adding it in the groups.

If you are a developer, you can directly head to .

Earlier I created a bot  (@Chuck_Norris_Jokes_Bot ) to get random chuck Norris Joke. Now I will send these jokes to some groups(telegram) to create awkward silences :p
