Best Telegram plugin, very well supported!

It is the best all-in-one solution for Telegram on WP and it is constantly evolving. You can auto post to your TG channel and show your channel's messages on your site very easily. Install plugin, set up channel bot, provide access token and Bob's your uncle! The whole process is 5 mins and there's a step-by-step guide. God forbid you encounter a problem, there's AMAZING support on Telegram. There's no reason why you shouldn't popularize your channel (and also Telegram as a service) on your site. This plugin is very much recommended!

This Telegram plugin is the best there is! Amazing!

This is the best Telegram Plugin out there, amazing possibilities! I had question when I was installing it, but the developers helped me out immediately, and went all the extra miles. They helped me out and made sure everything worked as it supposed to, they went on untill they were absolutely sure everything worked perfectly and I had no questions left. Best service I have seen in a long time!
