You will be delighted to know that your favourite chat solution is growing leaps and bounds as a product. Quite a lot of you noticed the flurry of updates in the recent past, and wrote back with enquiries and suggestions. We have taken heed of your feedback and are ready with new enhancements that will leave your users spellbound.
This is yet another big-bang release and here’s what you can expect:
Bots for CometChat
This is a first-in-class feature for a chat solution. You can now have your users glued to their conversation with helper bots giving them interesting pieces of information, like weather updates, news, stocks quotes, etc…
A weather chat bot in action
Users adding a touch of fun using a Giphy bot
There are dozens of ready-to-use bots and you can create your own bots as well!
New enhancements in the UX and UI
As part of our ongoing efforts to improve your users’ experience, we have introduced a couple of new enhancements.
Some of you want more than the standard 15-colours theming options. You can now customize your chat’s colours at will, the colour editor is back with a vengeance.
Multiple conversations now get stacked up on one-another for a better user-experience.
We have tweaked the core architecture to reduce the load exerted on the server by upto 50%. CometChat is now twice as fast and the apps will consume lesser battery life (on mobile).
One versioning system for all products
In the past, we have had varying version series for each of our products (web, desktop & apps); this changes from 6.3. From now on, all our releases will build on 6.3.0 and will envelope all product variants.
Phew! That is quite a lot of things to look forward to in this release.
