Can you disable Telegram notifications somehow? I am seeing a huge battery consumption since last few weeks and after upgrading to Android 5.0.2. After one day of use battery app is reporting that Telegram has kept mobile radio on for 7 hours. Using 50% of the battery used.

I use telegram rarely. I would like to completely disable notifications, but I cant find any option for that. I have tried disabling notification service and everything.


First, AFAIK, "Notification Service" makes reference to receive notifications in Telegram about every new update (changelog or "What's new"), as well as another announcements which Telegram staff may consider important for you to know via Telegram chat.

Second, Android Lollipop has a new way to manage notifications per app. Enter Settings screen for your device and follow these steps:

Settings: Sound & notification App notifications

Telegram Block notifications from this app

Like any other app. Go to settings >> apps >> Telegram. uncheck 'Show Notifications'

Go to Settings --> Notifications and Sounds, and uncheck what's under Notifications for chats.
Then, under the Other section, you can uncheck Keep-Alive Service and Background Connection.

But per your battery consumption problem, it's weird and shouldn't happen. I use it regularly and it's not on my top battery consumers.
