Can you please provide information about how many previous messages a new entrant into a Private Telegram Group can see?

I tried to look at the settings, on Telegram Desktop, under "Manage group", but I don't see it there.

Telegram Private Group settings

1 Answer 1


Chat history for new members can be 1. Visible or 2. Hidden

When visible new members will see messages sent before they joined.

When hidden new members won't see more than 100 previous messages.

Locate this feature by clicking on edit button in your group info page.
