Meet new plugins for ONLYOFFICE Docs: Telegram, HTML and Word counter

Published by

Good news!

We added several useful plugins that will help you do even more with ONLYOFFICE Docs: it’s now possible to chat with co-authors right in the editors via Telegram, get your document content as HTML code, and count words in the selected part of your doc.


The Telegram plugin allows you to communicate with other collaborators right in the editors using the integrated Telegram client.

How to use

  1. Choose Telegram from the Plugins tab.
  2. Sign in to Telegram using your phone number or QR code.
  3. You‘ll remain logged in by default. If you want to change an account, leave the Keep me signed in box unchecked.
  4. The list of your chats will appear on the left-side panel.

By the way, we now have our own mascot stickers for Telegram. Download ONLYOFFICE sticker pack and share holiday vibes with your colleagues and friends.


With the HTML plugin, you can get your document content as HTML code, modify it, and paste back to the document.

How to use

  1. Open the Plugins tab and press ‘Get and past html’.
  2. Select the necessary content.
  3. In the plugin field on the left panel, you’ll see the HTML code of the selected abstract.
  4. Modify the HTML code if necessary.
  5. Click ‘Paste into document’ to insert the HTML code to the current cursor position in your document.

You can also write your own HTML code (without selecting any content) and then paste it to your document.

Word counter

This plugin allows counting words, characters with or without spaces, and paragraphs in the selected part of your document.

How to use

  1. Select the required text.
  2. Open the Plugins tab and click “Count words and characters”.

Please note that the following elements are not included in the word count:

  • Footnotes/endnotes symbols;
  • Numbers from numbered lists;
  • Page numbers.
