Before the arrival of Telegram and its bots, as a general rule this word had always been like this every automatic processes aimed mainly at activities related to bad practices, although not always, of course. But the arrival of the bots has turned the messaging platform into a multifunctional application with which we can perform tasks of all kinds, tasks that perfectly complement other applications available in the different application stores, be it the Apple Store or Google Play. In this article we are going to show you the best bots available for Telegram.
By not having to pass any filter of the application stores, it is very easy to find bots that at no time could we see in an ecosystem, such as iOS, where we do not find any official application that allow us to download only the audio from YouTube videos, a task that we can do quickly through the Telegram bots.
Natively, Telegram offers us several bots installed natively in all the chats among which we find the search for videos on YouTube, search for GIFs in Ghipy and the Markdown text format to be able to use bold or italic in conversations. To access them we just have to write @ and these three appear, so that we can select the one we are looking for at that moment or we can use it in the following way: "@vid name of the video", "@gif name of gif" and "@Bold text a we want to display in bold or italic".
