However, if we're talking about a messaging client, accessing a conversation is a more labor intensive process and it would be great to have the ability to put a Telegram chat on the home screen, right? Well, the truth is that yes it can and the same process that we have already seen in a tutorial on how to anchor a WhatsApp conversation on the Android desktop. Later in The Power Of The Green Android we will explain how to do it easily and quickly.
