I'm not able to find the way of getting service messages. For example messages of type:

  • User1 added User2
  • User joined the group
  • ...

We invite you to ask questions about the usage of this library in our Telegram group. In case you are unable to join our group due to Telegram restrictions, you can use our IRC channel to participate in the group.

Since this system is for tracking issues with the library itself, we'll be closing this one.

Bot API 4.0 (#1168)
Telegram Passport (#1174):

- Add full support for telegram passport.
    - New types: PassportData, PassportFile, EncryptedPassportElement, EncryptedCredentials, PassportElementError, PassportElementErrorDataField, PassportElementErrorFrontSide, PassportElementErrorReverseSide, PassportElementErrorSelfie, PassportElementErrorFile and PassportElementErrorFiles.
    - New bot method: set_passport_data_errors
    - New filter: Filters.passport_data
    - Field passport_data field on Message
    - PassportData is automagically decrypted when you specify your private key when creating Updater or Bot.
    - PassportFiles is also automagically decrypted as you download/retrieve them.
- See new example for details on how to use, or go to our telegram passport wiki page for more info
- NOTE: Passport decryption requires new dependency `cryptography`.

Inputfile rework (#1184):

- Change how Inputfile is handled internally
- This allows support for specifying the thumbnails of photos and videos using the thumb= argument in the different send_ methods.
- Also allows Bot.send_media_group to actually finally send more than one media.
- Add thumb to Audio, Video and Videonote
- Add Bot.edit_message_media together with InputMediaAnimation, InputMediaAudio, and inputMediaDocument.

Other Bot API 4.0 changes:

- Add forusquare_type to Venue, InlineQueryResultVenue, InputVenueMessageContent, and Bot.send_venue. (#1170)
- Add vCard support by adding vcard field to Contact, InlineQueryResultContact, InputContactMessageContent, and Bot.send_contact. (#1166)
- Support new message entities: CASHTAG and PHONE_NUMBER. (#1179)
    - Cashtag seems to be things like $USD and $GBP, but it seems telegram doesn't currently send them to bots.
    - Phone number also seems to have limited support for now
- Add Bot.send_animation, add width, height, and duration to Animation, and add Filters.animation. (#1172)
