Telegram groups are often used as a medium to transfer photos, videos, documents, links, and other files online without the need for expensive file hosting services. Each party within a group or personal chat could easily grab those items and save them on their device.

But things get a lot more challenging if you need to download, let’s say, a thousand files. Of course, selecting and downloading them manually would be infuriating work.

Thankfully, Telegram allows you to export a massive amount of files in a bulk. This export feature doesn’t exist on the Telegram app nor web, instead, we must you the desktop version if.

In this guide, I’m going to focus on downloading multiple videos from a Telegram chat/group at once. However, the same steps could be applied to other file types. Let’s get started.

1. First, download Telegram Desktop from this link.

9. If you received this message, then unfortunately there’s nothing we can do but wait for another 24 hours to pass. Bookmark this page and come back when it is ready.

10. If you didn’t receive the warning message, the exporting process will start. Be aware that the download speed is agonizingly slow no matter how much you paid for the internet.

14. Telegram also exports video thumbnails. It’s best to group or sort the folder by Type so you could easily navigate to the video files.

And there you have it, all Telegram videos from a group/chat downloaded without hassle. Again, the same technique can be used to download other types of files, such as photos, GIFs, stickers, and more.
