Usable by Users Bots
  • 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).

  • parse_mode (ParseMode, optional) – By default, texts are parsed using both Markdown and HTML styles. You can combine both syntaxes together.

  • disable_web_page_preview (bool, optional) – Disables link previews for links in this message.

  • 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 (datetime, optional) – Date when the message will be automatically sent.

  • protect_content (bool, optional) – Protects the contents of the sent message from forwarding and saving.

  • 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.
