We're excited to announce and introduce you to custom CSS, which means you'll be able to make simple customizations to the CometChat call screen, such as changing
The background color of the call screen
The font and size of the participant's name in the call
The background color and shape of the provided default buttons
The size of the participant screen in tile and spotlight mode
Technically custom CSS, allows you to add or replace CSS of the existing call screen. It provides flexibility to change the user interface of your web application programmatically.
Let's get started to know more and see how the screens look on making changes using custom CSS.
