Created a new Telegram Group for testing, and wanted to know the Group ID to send messages to the group using a bot.

One quick way (there are other ways as well):

  • Go to: https://web.telegram.org/
  • Login using your phone number
  • Telegram sends you a confirmation code to your client on your mobile device
  • Once you are logged in: click on the group
  • The URL changes to something like: https://web.telegram.org/#/im?p=g1234567
  • Pick the number after p=g (in this example: `1234567**), and negate it (Group numbers in *Telegram* are negative)

The group number is: -1234567
