send_cached_media()

Client.send_cached_media()

Send any media stored on the Telegram servers using a file_id.

This convenience method works with any valid file_id only. It does the same as calling the relevant method for sending media using a file_id, thus saving you from the hassle of using the correct method for the media the file_id is pointing to.

Parameters
  • chat_id (int | str) – Unique identifier (int) or username (str) of the target chat. For your personal cloud (Saved Messages) you can simply use “me” or “self”. For a contact that exists in your Telegram address book you can use his phone number (str).

  • file_id (str) – Media to send. Pass a file_id as string to send a media that exists on the Telegram servers.

  • file_ref (str, optional) – A valid file reference obtained by a recently fetched media message. To be used in combination with a file id in case a file reference is needed.

  • caption (bool, optional) – Media caption, 0-1024 characters.

  • parse_mode (str, optional) – By default, texts are parsed using both Markdown and HTML styles. You can combine both syntaxes together. Pass “markdown” or “md” to enable Markdown-style parsing only. Pass “html” to enable HTML-style parsing only. Pass None to completely disable style parsing.

  • disable_notification (bool, optional) – Sends the message silently. Users will receive a notification with no sound.

  • reply_to_message_id (int, optional) – If the message is a reply, ID of the original message.

  • schedule_date (int, optional) – Date when the message will be automatically sent. Unix time.

  • reply_markup (InlineKeyboardMarkup | ReplyKeyboardMarkup | ReplyKeyboardRemove | ForceReply, optional) – Additional interface options. An object for an inline keyboard, custom reply keyboard, instructions to remove reply keyboard or to force a reply from the user.

Returns

Message – On success, the sent media message is returned.
