Create groups and channels in Telegram X
One of the most important tips you need to learn on how to use Telegram X is the tutorials on how you can create groups and channels on Telegram X. The steps you need to take in order to create a group or channel on Telegram X is not different from Telegram. The only difference is how you can enter the section where it allows you to create the group or the channel.

Clear cache in Telegram X
Another important tip you need to know before you start to use Telegram X is how you can clear cache memory on this application.

This problem is usually resolved by clearing the cache memory using an option that Telegram X has devised in its settings menu. There are two methods you can use to clear cache for Telegram X. The first method is to enter your phone settings and then use app manager to find Telegram X and click on Clear Cache. The second method can be used from the within of Telegram X application.

From the opened window, click on CLEAR to clear cache memory on Telegram X.
Turn off automatic media download
Another really important tip you need to learn to use Telegram X is how you can turn off automatic media download. Automatic media download will automatically download all the media shared via chats, groups and channels. Of course this option is great if you want to have all the media ready to view, but it will be major drain to your data package if you are on a limited plan. So, if you are running out of Mega Bytes too fast, I recommend that you turn off automatic media download on your Telegram X and manually download the content that you want. Here are the steps you need to take in order to use Telegram X settings to turn off automatic media download:
- Run Telegram X application on your phone
- Enter Settings and choose Data and Storage

So, you can use this option to read messages without the target person finding out that you have read the message. It is in fact very easy to use Telegram X to read messages without opening the conversation. All you need to do is to long press on the conversation that you would want to read and a preview of the inside of the conversation will be displayed to you. This preview allows you to read the most recent sent and received messages in that particular conversation. And when you hold up your finger, the preview will disappear.
Change language in Telegram X
Another tutorial that many Telegram X users are looking for is the ability to change the language in Telegram X. Telegram application offers the ability to change the language so that the users of the application will not have any difficulty using it. But unfortunately, Telegram X application does not offer this feature for now. But we are expecting in near future that Telegram X will add the option to change the language.
