When the other party is composing a message and you are in the conversation view you will see a small animated picture of a pen in the top bar. When you tap the input text field the other party will see the same typing notification on his side as long as you keep the focus on the text field. It will stop when you tap on anywhere else on the screen or sent the message.


When the keyboard is put up, on its left side is the emoticons icon. Tap it to switch the standard keyboard to the view with a set of emoticons.


Following types of attachments are supported:

  • Picture from camera or gallery
  • Short video (up to 10 seconds) from camera
  • Audio note recorded from microphone (up to 30 seconds)

The attachments can be sent from the conversation view.

The files are uploaded to the server first, even if the other user is online. When the upload is finished the message is sent to the other party with information necessary to download the file. When the message is opened the dialer starts downloading. When downloaded the file is removed from the server.

This approach allows sending files even if the recipient is offline. The file will be stored on the server along with the message.
