What are bots?

It will depend on the bot that you install fulfill one or another functionFrom receiving notifications when a chapter opens, searching for song lyrics, requesting a specific GIF of something, or scheduling alerts. Each one has some instructions or a “command” that serves to give orders or use it, to activate it, etc.

Among these Telegram bots we find one that allows you to download YouTube videos on Telegram without installing anything else on your mobile phone, any unreliable website with ads or applications of dubious reliability. It is quite simple and the procedure is similar in all: look for the bot, paste a link to YouTube, wait a while and you will download the file you need.
The first thing you will have to do is open Telegram and use the magnifying glass offered by the messaging app. Once in the search section you will have to write UploadURL v4.4.2 (or any other bot used for this function.
