The new application, as the company says, has been developed from the scratch. The VoIP messenger now makes it simple for people to converse with groups in a extra expressive and lively manner.
It is now achievable to personalize the app with colors and people can also respond to every message in a conversation. This concept is broadly utilized in Messenger chat app by Facebook. In addition to this, reacting in a video call is also possible. While all of this can be achieved in the app under the Chat tab, the firm has also comprised a new Highlights tab.
The Highlights tab allows users to make a Highlight Reel of their day. This reel is done with videos and photos and can be shared with others present in their contact list. To post a Highlight, consumers can just swipe to open the camera and take a video or photo. This can be later posted. Contacts can react to these Highlights and view them as well.
