We just released a new set of features for private chat.
See here what kind of new features we added.
New private chat look!
We spent a lot of time to talk to users and understand their pain with respect to private chat design. We are happy to introduce our new better and intuitive UI for private chat.
Now messages will be framed as chat bubbles.
Each message will be framed as a single message.
In addition, the user icons will be shown on the right and left sides corresponding to the sender and receiver.
New private message indicator!
Now, this was long requested by chatters. When you’re on a private conversation with a user, and receiving a message from a different user, a red indicator will be shown on the [different] user image that sent the message.
Private Chat Storage!
This is technical, but it is important to many users. Till now when you refreshed the page the private conversation was cleaned. Now private chat history will be saved locally on your computer until you close the browser (refreshing or closing the chat tab won’t delete the history).
Note, we do not store the private conversation and also administrator of the chat cannot see private conversations. Private discussion is kept private.
Private Message – Block option
You can now block specific users from sending you private messages.
Use the block button on the top of the private chat to stop seeing private messages from a certain user.
Private message Live Media
Your private messages will now show links, images, youtube videos, etc.
Till now those were not shown in the private chat.
* The private messages settings for allowing images, sounds..etc are based on your general settings.
Red admin user
Now all admin users color [username] will be red by default.
This can be changed using simple CSS rules.
We made some admin panel updates.
CSS editing can now be made along side visual editing.
The “Invite Friends” button can be easily hidden in the chat settings.
