Good afternoon friends.
On November 3, the next update of our messenger took place. It includes both stabilization and technical tasks, as well as new functionality, which we will talk about in more detail.
For several sprints, our iOS team worked on the background handling of new message notifications. As a result, we have increased the speed at which chat messages are loaded after receiving a notification. By updating the application, you will be able to check the download speed yourself. However, due to major technical changes, we strongly recommend that you first uninstall the application before updating.
On the Android platform, we have two new features. The small one is the ability to switch between chat and channel search results. The second is much larger. Starting with this update, users of the messenger will be able to create new contacts on their devices within the messenger itself.
In addition, the current release adds support for custom sections in the channel catalog (we talked about them in our last release). Our directory will now offer more channels, including newcomers you might never have known about otherwise.
Stay in touch!
