Differences in Web vs Android or iOS App

If you currently use our Android or iOS app, there are some differences in the web version which you will have to take note of

  1. Need to manually change channel: On the web, the active channel will not be switched automatically. If someone is talking to you on other another channel, you will hear a tone to indicate this. The tone means that someone is talking to you but his voice is not being played. You will also see the unread badge increased in your channel selector.
  2. No history of Contacts and Messages: Currently the previous list of messages and channels is not being store. If you refresh or re-login, you will need to add them again. We will be improving this in our next version.

  3. Type "*": The Paging button can be done by typing the * key

  4. Type "SOS" to send SOS In a group: The SOS button can be done by typing the SOS one a single line.
