Hydrogram is a Python library for interacting with the Telegram MTProto API. It provides a simple and intuitive interface for developers to leverage the power of Telegram's API in their Python applications.


To install Hydrogram, you need Python 3 installed on your system. If you don't have Python installed, you can download it from the official website.

To install Hydrogram, use pip:

pip install hydrogram -U


Here is a basic example of how to use Hydrogram:

from hydrogram import Client, filters

app = Client("my_account")

async def hello(client, message):
    await message.reply("Hello from Hydrogram!")


  • Easy to use: Hydrogram provides a simple and intuitive interface for developers to leverage the power of Telegram's API in their Python applications, while still allowing advanced usages.
  • Elegant: Low-level details are abstracted and re-presented in a more convenient way, making the Telegram API more accessible.
  • Fast: Hydrogram is boosted by TgCrypto, a high-performance cryptography library written in C, which makes it faster than other Python Telegram libraries.
  • Type-hinted: Types and methods are all type-hinted, enabling excellent editor support and making it easier to write and maintain code.
  • Async: Hydrogram is fully asynchronous, which means it can handle multiple requests at the same time, making it faster and more efficient.
  • Powerful: Hydrogram provides full access to Telegram's API to execute any official client action and more, giving developers the flexibility to build powerful applications.
