Features you need for virtual socializing

Group chat: messaging, sending files/images

Of course, group chats cannot be missing from virtual socialization. How can you talk to your team or client if you don’t have the right tool?

Group chats are perfect for virtual socializing since anyone can chat. If one of your team members need to say something, then they can send any message they want to relay.

Another feature of the group chat is that anyone can send files for sharing. RumbleTalk supports PDF, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. Users can also share images and audio/video files.

Also, users can take selfies and record short audio and video messages that are playable in-chat.

All in all, a group chat lets you hold virtual socializations instantaneously.

Private chat: private messaging, one-on-one audio/video calls

The private chat has a number of features that you can use for virtual socializing: private messaging and one-on-one video calls.

Moderated chat: pre-approve messages, Q&A mode

The moderated chat has the same features offered in the group chat. However, think of it as an upgraded version since the moderated chat lets you pre-approve messages.

What does that mean? This means that admins can approve or delete messages before they get sent in the chat. Users will not be able to see messages from other users unless they have been approved by admins.

Therefore, you can use the moderated chat as a Q&A mode for virtual socializing. Switch up your virtual social session and let your team/clients ask questions about the topic you’re currently talking about.

Then, as the admin, choose the questions you want to answer. Your team/clients will see it once you approve it so messages won’t be as cluttered as in a group chat.

Bonus features

Admin mode

In the group chat or moderated chat, you can enable admin mode. The admin mode is a feature that admins can use to force users to stop typing or sending messages.

When activated, only admins can talk with each other. Admins can take advantage of this feature to relay important announcements or notifications.

For example, if you’re the head of your team, you can use admin mode to address important topics in the chat before letting your team type in their comments.

To enable admin mode, go to your chat menu. One of the options there is admin mode. Click it to enable the feature. As seen in the example above, non-admin users will see it on their chat boxes so they cannot type or send messages.

For admin users, they will see it on the upper part of the screen. Therefore, they can still send messages in the chat.
