    The fundamentals and values of CometChat has always been to serve our users with the best features and experiences we can. This has always been the drive and incentive for us in meeting the requirements of all our clients.

    In the light of these developments, our team of highly skilled developers have added another list of updates to CometChat. Have a look for yourself:

    New & Powerful Javascript and Restful API

    We have been updating and upgrading all of our Scripts and API’s to provide better access to our features.

    You can also use our new Javascript and Restful API’s to customize CometChat’s functionality on your website with more control.

    From creating/deleting/adding groups and users in a group to user logins with UID, we covered a lot of features.

    Email Notifications

    The Email Notification feature sends an email to every offline user whenever he/she has a new message. This prompts the offline user that someone is trying to connect with them over chat, hence pushing them to check their messages.

    This keeps the user informed and on track with important messages and notifications.

    File Sharing made easy

    Our updated file sharing feature allows your users to send files by simply dragging and dropping them within chat.

    Users now just drag and drop files to share them

    Your users can securely share files, documents, reports and images with a simple drag and drop UI.

    Updated Developer Documentation

    We have updated our developer documentation to make them simpler and easier to follow. You can find comprehensive guides and documentation to help you get started.

    New Integration for Bubble.is

    CometChat now has a dedicated, ready-to-use integration for bubble.is. You can now add CometChat to your Bubble.is website with minimal effort with a few clicks and needles to say, within minutes.

    Improved Administration Panel

    We have updated our Administration Panel to give you more control over CometChat and its functionalities.

    The updated Administration Panel is fluid and offers more control

    Apart from managing users, searching for users directly from the admin panel, you can now also delete group messages right from the Admin Panel.

    Better Voice & Video Calling and Conference

    Users will now receive a busy tone if they call another user who is already on a call. Also, users will be informed if they have a slow internet connection before the start of a Voice and Video Call.
