If I have Telegram running on my computer, it doesn’t show up on the mobile app as online does it

As far as I can tell, they’re two different programs

Hello, thank you for using Howly. I’ll be happy to help you out! May I ask your name?

Nice to meet you, *****!
It's the same Telegram, which you are using from different platforms. Just if you are online even from one device, anybody of your friend will see you as online.

OK so if I’m using the computer program, can you see that the computer program is online from the mobile app?

Yes, I would be able to see your online status from the mobile app

So if you have Telegram on your computer, but your computer isn’t being used, you can still see on the mobile app that it’s online even though it’s not open
So if I have a friend that is using the computer and I go on the mobile app to our chat together, I can still see that her computer is online

In this case, I would see you offline. But sometimes you can see that the person is still online, if he left not more than 5 minutes ago
Telegram on pc works almost the same way as the telegram mobile app.

Hey, so if they keep going on and off line on the computer, I will see it on my mobile app as online

Yes, you are totally right

OK thank you but I have one more question if they’re away from their computer and it shows off-line and the mobile app keeps saying online and then going off-line and then going online again that’s the mobile app not the computer correct you have to be on the computer with it open in order to see it online It wouldn’t just show up online if no one had an open on the computer.

It wouldn’t just show up online if no one had an open on the computer, you are right
