In time for Christmas we might have the Messenger update. Sneak a peek...

The Messenger is an increasingly important module in UNA, and we want to make it really fast, seamless and capable. The next update will feature updated UI, new text editor, new file uploaders, new emoji library and some other features and fixes which we will announce next week. Here's a quick preview of what we've got so far:

  • Looks pretty good so far. Hopefully in the future there will be an option to upload your own stickers that can be added into the library like Rocket Chat has.

                  • I see that backgrounds will be an option, is that background for the whole jot messenger page or will it only cover the chat side which is the right side?

                      • In a way Messenger is a testing ground for new interactions. We will be adding new "reactions" to the Messenger and then carry over some of those concepts to the other modules.

                        • Will the uploading background cover the whole page or just the chat area?

                              • Please do not forget the "Conversations" module when you do that. I know a lot of people take it for granted but I've been using it personally preferred it over messenger. I know it can be improved even more with design and features, please don't leave it in the cold. Please, I love it! 😉😏

                                  Next year we plan to switch to our Conversations for ticketing and general long-form communications with clients, so a few collaboration features are planned for them.

                                        • The image uploads I showed is for message attachments. There is no background cover feature there, but it’s be an easy one to do. Do you mean a background for the conversation area? Most messengers that use backgrounds have to have cards/bubbles for the messages to ensure there’s no contrast issues. That’s going to create double margins and may need special treatment on mobile.

                                                • We have to be very careful with video calls - the platform support is a mess - depending on browsers, devices and OSs everything is different.

                                                  There is some good news though - we can now enable video rooms in UNA native apps and in most cases on desktop using jitsi. A better integration for the messenger is coming soon.

                                                  So far the tricky part is in-browser experience on mobile - working on it.

                                                    • UNA is an awesome platform. I only recently discovered it. It's easily on the level of WordPress, but undiscovered. I think it will be much bigger than it is nowdays, someday. Maybe even pushing up into Microsoft Sharepoint or Teams kind of territory, but open source as a collaboration hub.

                                                        There is a lot to do for us to achieve the level of performance we are aiming for, but the core ideas and values are in the right place, so with enough determination we should be able to evolve UNA to great heights.
