Telegram Hack: How-to upgrade groups to supergroups

telegram supergroups upgrade


This hack is no longer useful because with Telegram 3.7 we could convert a group to supergroup directly, it’s a feature.

With this hack you will be able to upgrade your normal group to a supergroup, the only requisite is to be the group owner and use the desktop client. This won’t work on the groups you are admin.

Important: If you upgrade a group you won’t be able to revert this updgrade.


1. Install Telegram Desktop Client on your computer:

2. Create a normal group and:

  • Set the name.
  • Add 4 members (you can add bots).
  • Photo is optional.

Now go to the info tab:

telegram group settings upgrade

3. Type:


Clarification: Just type the word tosupergroup wherever, so none space 🙂

4. You will see the “upgrade to supergroup” button:

telegram tosupergroup upgrade

Press “Upgrade to supergroup”

super group telegram upgrade

5. Confirm it and it’s done!
Now you got your supergroup, remove the bots and enjoy it.

    While it seem to work, “new member can see entire message history” doesn’t seem to be true. Just joined new group converted to supergroup using this hack and still can’t seen any previous messages.

    • Avatar akin4tor says:

      That’s weird, it worked to me. When I enter to the supergroup I can see the previous messages (from the very first moment it was upgraded, not previously)

    • Hi kamal,

      The “new member can see entire message history” is only valid for the supergroups, the messages sent when it was a normal group won’t work!

    WARNING! Supergroups are not compatible with the bot from another tutorial from this site. Bot simply does not see what is going on in supergroups

    • Avatar Avantgarde says:

      as far as I remember from another group I know, you have to reinvite the bot; or check the new group id; since converting to supergroup changes the group id
