This blog describes how you can integrate Telegram and create a python application based on the Flask web framework that can receive user Telegram messages and utilize ChatGPT to respond to those messages in detail.

Step 1: Create Telegram Bot

In order to automate the messages with ChatGPT, we just need to create the Telegram Bot. Please follow the instructions in our blog post Telegram Bot setup from step 1 to step 11. Please confirm that you followed the blog’s instructions before proceeding.

Step 2: ChatGPT API

Please take a look at our blog post, WhatsApp Chatbot With ChatGPT Step 2 “ChatGPT API” which has instructions for setting up and using ChatGPT.

Step 3: Integrate ChatGPT API with Flask Application

After our ChatGPT API got installed successfully, it is time to integrate it with the flask application. 

The flask application we developed in step 1 has to be modified now. To receive ChatGPT’s response to user messages, replace the existing code in your Flask app with the following code.

import requests
import os, signal

from flask import Flask
from flask import request
from flask import Response
import openai

openai.api_key = '<YOUR OPENAI API KEY>'


app = Flask(__name__)

def parse_message(message):
    chat_id = message['message']['chat']['id']
    txt = message['message']['text']
    print("Text :", txt)
    return chat_id,txt
def tel_send_message(chat_id, text):
    url = f'{TOKEN}/sendMessage'
    payload = {
                'chat_id': chat_id,
                'text': text
    response =,json=payload)
    return response

@app.route('/', methods=['GET', 'POST'])
def index():
    if request.method == 'POST':
        msg = request.get_json()
        chat_id,txt = parse_message(msg)
        completion = openai.ChatCompletion.create(
                {"role": "user", "content": txt}]
        response = completion['choices'][0]['message']['content']
        print("ChatGPT response: ",response) 
        return Response('ok', status=200)
        return "<h1>Welcome!</h1>"
if __name__ == '__main__':


Run the flask application in the terminal: python
Run the ngrok on terminal: ngrok http 5000

Step 4: Test Telegram Chatbot

Please send some messages to the Telegram bot to receive the ChatGPT-generated response. You will also get a response on a server.

Here is the ChatGPT response on our server.

We will get the below response in the Telegram Bot.

Do let us know if you face any issues in setting up or using the script. We would be happy to help! Contact us or post your query in the comments.
