Telegram allows you to send and share files of up to 1.5 GB to any contact and to yourself. Now we will explain how you can easily exchange or share files between your devices in a comfortable way.
To share a file, enter a contact or group. Press the clip icon and select ‘File’ to choose what you want to send. Also, on this way you can send pictures without being compressed. You can also send from your photo and video gallery or from the file folder of your mobile. To send a file to yourself, press the menu at the top left corner and enter ‘Saved messages’. A chat will open in which only you are, so that you can access that file from your mobile or your PC and download it. You can use either webapp version or desktop version).
In the computer or online version you can drag the files you want and drop them to be sent. Telegram allows you to send files of up to 1.5 GB. If you need more size you can use Filemail, which allows up to 50 GB in its free plan.
