How to find the first message in Telegram chat

Let say one day you join an active Telegram channel and there are hundreds and thousands of messages.

As a new member, you don’t want to interrupt the ongoing discussion and you decided to scroll up to find the first message and read from there.

While you are in the channel, follow exactly the steps below:

  1. Select the three vertical dots menu at the top right of the window.
  2. Select Search.
    • It will open a new search window.
    • Usually, people will search for a keyword Telegram and it will point you to the result in the chat.
    • But if the messages are too many, it is not practical to click the up or down arrow to go to the first result.
  3. What you will do differently here is, when you select Search, in the search window, there is a Calendar icon on the bottom right of your screen.
  4. Select the Calendar icon, it will show you the monthly view calendar of the event in that particular chat.
  5. Scroll to the top, click on the first date you can find and it will bring you to the first message of the chat.
  6. Voila! You found the first message of the chat within seconds.
