Telecommunications technology has allowed us to have direct yet secure conversations with our friends, family, and even co-workers in real-time. One of the most popular messaging applications is Telegram, which is available on both iOS and Android. Changes to Notification Settings on Telegram can help us tailor chat notifications so that we receive the alerts we want and can effectively manage who can or cannot reach us. This article will walk you through how to manually change the Notification Settings for a specific chat on Telegram for iOS devices.
I. Introduction to Telegram Notification Settings
What is Telegram Notification Settings?
Telegram notification settings allow users to customize their method of being notified when new messages arrive. With these settings, users can choose to be notified through sound, vibration, and other forms of media. They can also specify the type of notifications they receive, such as when a message is read or when a shared link is opened. It is an important tool for staying connected and up to date with conversations and messages.
Telegram offers users a variety of customization options when it comes to notification settings. Users can:
- Choose when notifications are active and when they are turned off
- Select the type of notification they would like to receive (such as sound, vibration, etc)
- Change the alert style for different types of notifications (such as text messages, multimedia messages, etc)
- Enable or disable the preview of messages when a notification arrives
How to Access Telegram Notification Settings
To access and customize Telegram notification settings, users will first need to open the Telegram app. Once there, they can navigate to the Settings menu, then select Notifications. Here, users will be able to customize the sound and vibration settings, as well as the different types of notifications they would like to receive. In the Advanced Settings section, additional customization options such as alert styles, preview of messages, and other settings can be adjusted.
II. Steps to Change Notification Settings for a Specific Chat on Telegram
Notification settings for a specific chat
To change notification settings, open the chat conversation. Tap the three vertical dots in the upper right-hand corner of the chat to access the chat menu.
Choose the option Notifications and Sounds. This will open another menu of options.
The two options related to notifications are Mute and Do Not Disturb.
Mute will mute all notifications for up to 24 hours. You do not get a notification for any messages received during this period. The mute button can be tapped again to resume normal notifications.
Do Not Disturb will keep notifications silenced for 8 hours. You can customize the time period if desired. As the name suggests, the feature keeps notifications from that chat from disturbing you during the time period you select.
Additionally, you also have the option to customize notifications for that chat. This includes advanced features such as different ringtones for each chat, setting custom notification sounds, setting a light color for the chat, and setting custom vibration patterns for the phone. These settings can be accessed from the same menu.
III. Configuring Settings to Change Specific Chat Notifications on Telegram
You have the ability to configure your settings to customize notifications for specific chats on your Telegram account. Here is what you need to do:

You can further refine your settings to receive notifications only when you are mentioned, or when someone sends an important message. You can also set the volume and vibration of the notifications.
You can also access the Notification Settings on the Chat List page by long pressing on the chat. When you do this, you will find the Mute Chat option that you can use to specifically mute notifications from a person or group. You can also choose how long you want the chat to be muted for, from 8 hours to 1 year.
