    Read last received telegram message on channel in VB

    Hi, I want to read the last received message of one telegram channel (I am not admin of this) into the visual studio for my application.
    I want to repeat this process every one second.

    Can it be done without using an API?
    Can somebody please guide me to do it?

    Why not use an API if they provide one? If they do provide one then there's every chance that it's against their terms of use to access their system any other way.

    Thanks for your answer jmcihinney.
    I can use API too. But, which API should I use?
    It is necessary to create bot or can I directly read the channel message?
    Any details/guidance will be very helpful.
    PS: I am really new to this.

    I just searched the web for "telegram api" and there appears to be plenty of information available. I suggest that you do some research first and come back with a more specific question if required.

    From the results of that search I clicked the link to the Telegram Bot API documentation and, from there, followed the Introduction to Bots link. The very first thing that page does is explain what a bot is. Is that what you want? If so then create a bot, otherwise don't. Either way, do what you can for yourself first.
