Connect Telegram to your Android device using an existing Telegram bot, Google cloud messages and this flow. Control your device from anywhere, using Telegram! All you need is the Telegram app and a key for sending Google cloud messages.
Free version: https://llamalab.com/automate/community/flows/41310
Send /start to https://t.me/Llamalabbot and follow the steps. After downloading this flow, enter your Gmail in the Variable Set block (#80), and authorize Automate to access your Google cloud messages that Telegram will send you.
Then send any message to https://t.me/Llamalabbot, which will forward it to your Android device via a Google cloud message. This flow can pick up the messages and perform any action you desire based on keywords, including replying to Telegram*. In this flow, some actions were already programmed to give you an idea of the possibilities, but you may of course edit it to your needs. Free version with under 30 blocks: https://llamalab.com/automate/community/flows/41310
* For details on this, read the comment in block #58.

Your Gmail and secret key are stored encrypted by the bot and are not shared with anyone. Your Google cloud messages are also sent encrypted and are decrypted by the flow itself.
Feel free to ask any questions in the Automate community on Telegram (https://t.me/+Sjlrby9DjHSXEFAP) or to me personally (email@example.com)
