getFile

Use this method to get basic info about a file and prepare it for downloading. For the moment, bots can download files of up to 20MB in size. On success, a File object is returned. The file can then be downloaded via the link https://api.telegram.org/file/bot/, where is taken from the response. It is guaranteed that the link will be valid for at least 1 hour.
