I been trying to add a bot to my Telegram group in Android Device but I am not able to do so. I tried @bot_name
, /bot_name but it doesn't work. Can anyone tell me is it possible to add a bot to the group or should I create a new bot using Telegram API(not bot API) so I can add the contact number to the group?
bots telegram telegram-bot

Edit: now there is yet an easier way to do this - when creating your group, just mention the full bot name (eg. @UniversalAgent1Bot
) and it will list it as you type. Then you can just tap on it to add it.
Create a new group from the menu. Don't add any bots yet
Find the bot (for instance you can go to Contacts and search for it)
Tap to open
Tap the bot name on the top bar. Your page becomes like this: Telegram bot settings
Now, tap the triple ... and you will get the Add to Group button: Adding the bot
Now select your group and add the bot - and confirm the addition

This was by far the easiest way. But please make those screenshot inline. Thanks. – Benny Bottema Oct 29 '16 at 9:42

You have to use @BotFather
, send it command: /setjoingroups There will be dialog like this:
BotFather: Choose a bot to change group membership settings.
BotFather: 'Enable' - bot can be added to groups. 'Disable' - block group invitations, the bot can't be added to groups. Current status is: DISABLED
BotFather: Success! The new status is: ENABLED.
After this you will see button "Add to Group" in your bot's profile.
看来只能用 telegram 的客户端来做这个事情了。
