Running Multiple Telegram Instances on macOS

less than 1 minute read

To run multiple instances of Telegram, we can use Automator to create an app to call Telegram with extra parameters. Steps:

  • Create another working directory for Telegram:
    mkdir ~/.telegram2
    
  • Create a new app with Automator, add ‘Run AppleScript’ with below codes:
on run {input, parameters}
  ignoring application responses
    do shell script "/Applications/Telegram.app/Contents/MacOS/Telegram -many -workdir ~/.telegram2 &>/dev/null &"
  end ignoring
end run

Done!
