Good afternoon friends.
In a week we will have another release, and today, we'd like to to brighten up the expectations, so let's share some main updates.
One of the main achievements of the upcoming release is that our application will be now proudly called PWA (Progressive Web Application). What does it mean? After the release, you will be able to use the web version as a separate app on your PC. To do this, it will be enough to open the messenger (for example) in Google Chrome, and the browser itself will offer to install the app. After installation, you will have an icon on your desktop, and the messenger will not open in a browser tab, but as a separate application. All the rest of the functionality, of course, will continue to work as usual.
Also, in the current release, the mode of viewing media files in the web version will be improved. There will be buttons for navigating between photos in full-screen view, support for navigation using the arrows on the keyboard, displaying the date and the sender of the photo with the ability to go to the message itself with the media file, and we also decided to add a separate button for downloading pictures and videos.
In the iOS version in the current release, we will launch Share Extention. Technically, this is a separate small application inside our messenger, which is responsible for re-sending files from other applications to our messenger. So now sharing information in Gem4me will become even more convenient.
Stay with us and keep up to date with all the news!
