Telegram has created chats by geolocation, allowing you to search for interlocutors nearby

The Telegram messenger has been updated with the ability to create geolocation chats with users located nearby – from 100 meters to 12 kilometers.


Users can now create chats with neighbors in their homes or neighborhoods using only geolocation without any other data about the person, such as a phone number.

To create a geo-chat, you need to specify its subject and geolocation radius: to start a conversation, go to “Contacts” and select the function “Find people nearby“.

Function is available for iOS and Android devices, minimal geolocation radius is 100 meters, maximal one is 12 km. The number of chat participants is not limited.
