How do I report a bug in Nicegram?

Most bugs in Nicegram are also bugs in the official Telegram app. We only accept bug reports for Nicegram-related features, like folders and tabs.

There are some bugs that Nicegram cannot fix:

  • Random crashes
  • Audio calls not working in the background
  • “Updating…” for a long time
  • Not updating chats in the background
  • Live location not updating in the backround
  • Failing to send messages in the background
  • Notifications not disappearing if the message is read or deleted
  • “Connecting…” forever, even if official app is OK (you can try to use a proxy)
  • Impossible to leave chat from chat info screen (You can leave via dialog list)

If the issue you have found isn’t listed above, send a message in the Nicegram Chat with every piece of information listed below.

  1. The #bug hashtag.
  2. A short but complete description of the bug. (You may also include a video or picture demonstrating the bug, if you think it would help.)
  3. What version of iOS you are using (13.1.3, 12.4.1, etc.).
  4. What version of Nicegram you are using (5.11, 5.10, etc.).
  5. What build number of Nicegram you are using (66, etc.).

You can find the version and build number of Nicegram by tapping the settings gear 10 times quickly and then scrolling to the bottom of the screen. You should see com.nicegram.Telegram-iOS and X.XX (YY).

X.XX is the version number. (YY) is the build number.

Why can’t I see previews of images in notifications or reply from notifications?

There are bugs in Telegram’s servers that only appear when you are using an unofficial app like Nicegram. One of these bugs is particularly annoying: you will receive a push notification saying “You have a new message!” every time someone sends a message in a group you are in, even if the group is muted. In order to work around this, Nicegram has a setting (that defaults to on) called “Disable Unwanted Notifications.” Because of the way notification replies and notification previews work, disabling these potentially unwanted notifications also disables those features.

How do I get Nicegram for macOS?

Nicegram is available for macOS Apple M1 and latest -> Download

How do I get Nicegram for Android?

Nicegram was generally available for iOS, but in 2021 we’re introducting Nicegram for Android. It may lack of some features for a while, but you will definitely love it! Download in the Play Store.

Why can’t I join the TestFlight beta?

TestFlight betas are limited to 10,000 testers. It is very likely that all the beta slots are full. If no new slots have opened up after a few days, politely state in the Nicegram Chat that the TestFlight beta is full and you would like to join. The developer will clear out beta testers who have not updated the app recently so that new testers can join.

Why was I removed from the TestFlight beta?

Beta slots for Nicegram are in high demand. If you have not updated your beta copy of Nicegram recently, the developer will remove you so that other testers may join the beta.

Why hasn’t Nicegram been updated with the newest features from Telegram?

Nicegram is mostly a copy of the official Telegram app. However, the developers making the official app frequently change their version in ways that break Nicegram’s nice features. We don’t think they’re doing it on purpose; writing apps is hard. Our developer does his best to make sure that new changes to the official Telegram app are incorporated into Nicegram as fast as possible.

Just be patient and wait.
