Is it possible to personalize the Publer Bot, such as altering the name and profile image?

No, it's a mandatory requirement by Telegram's API, thus changing the name or profile picture is not possible.

Can the Publer Bot's identity be hidden or made anonymous when publishing a post on Telegram?

No, it isn't possible. The Publer Bot will always appear alongside the Telegram posts when posting to a Telegram Group.

Does it function the same way on the Telegram Channel? Will the posts on Telegram be shown as published by the Publer Bot?

No, when you post on a Telegram Channel, the post appears as posted by the Channel itself without any reference to Publer.

Can we schedule silent messages on Telegram using Publer?

Unfortunately, no. Telegram Silent Messages are not yet supported.

Does Publer support adding reactions to a post on Telegram?

Due to the API limitations of Telegram, it is not supported by us yet.
