What Does Telegram Call Waiting & Line Busy Mean

Your Quick Answer:

You might be confused while you make a few changes or follow something and wondering if someone on Telegram has noticed it.

How To Know If Someone Is Busy On Telegram Call:

If you want to find out if someone is making a call or talking to someone then it’s really simple to understand. There are two signs that you can use to verify if someone is on call.


You will find the ‘Line Busy’ voice while you’re making any call to the person and this means the person getting a call or making a call on Telegram with someone else.


If you’re noticing the ‘Waiting’ tag on the call that you’re making then the person whom you called is busy talking with someone else.

🔯 What Does Line Busy Mean in Telegram:

Line busy on Telegram means that the user whom you’re calling on Telegram is on another Telegram call. It means that he is talking to another Telegram contact and you’ll have to wait for some time so that the user finishes up the call with the other person to take up your call.

It’s also possible that the person is getting a call or is making a call himself to another user on Telegram at the same time when you’re calling him which is why it’s showing LINE BUSY under the user’s name on the call screen when you’re trying to call him.


This doesn’t mean that the user would not be available to take your calls anymore. Wait for sufficient time for the user to finish his call and then call him again so that you don’t see the LINE BUSY tag while calling.

🔯 What Does Waiting on Telegram Mean:

Waiting on Telegram means that your call to the user is on wait as the recipient is on another call. When you’re calling someone on Telegram who’s on another Telegram call, making a call to someone, or getting a call from another person you’ll see the WAITING tag.


It’s exactly the same as the phone’s waiting voice notification that you hear when you call someone who’s on another call. You don’t need to think that the user has blocked your Telegram just because your call is showing to be waiting. If you call the user after some time the call will reach the person and won’t show as to be WAITING if the recipient is not on any other call anymore.

Why Does Telegram Call Show Waiting:

You may have the following reasons:

1. Maybe the person is On Another Call

When your Telegram call is showing to be on WAITING, it’s most probably because the person whom you’re calling is busy on another call or is calling someone else.

You need to cut the call and patiently wait for some time and then try again. There is a good chance that when you’ll call him for the second time after one time you will not see the WAITING tag but your call will reach the user and might get answered too.


2. The Person Set to Waiting for All Calls

The person may have set his Telegram setting to divert all his calls so that all the calls appear to be waiting for the callers.

In that case, when you call the person, it will appear that the user is being called and you’re on WAITING, however, the calls won’t actually reach the person and will get diverted. This method is used by the recipient when he doesn’t want to get disturbed by calls from Telegram contacts.
