In today’s age, Digitally enabled businesses continuously strive towards higher efficiency and staying relevant to customers. Enabling smooth, engaging communication amongst various people associated with your business, like customers, members, service providers, etc, can reap many benefits.
Channelize.io provides a real-time, peer-to-peer communication platform that can be leveraged by businesses of various types for growth. Our feature-rich, scalable platform provides you the right tools with reliable support, and can be integrated within your existing website and apps.
Channelize’s new release contains many new features and enhancements that can make big impact on your growth. In this release, we focussed on making communication amongst your members natural and free-flowing.
Quote / Reply Messages
Many times users in busy, long conversations would want to answer a message which is not the immediate one or exists somewhere earlier in the conversation.
Our new feature promises to be especially useful in such busy group and one-to-one conversations, where it might not be obvious which member of the group – or even which message – you are answering.
Tap “Reply” and the pre-built Channelize real-time messaging interface will generate a small preview of the selected message above the compose box, at the bottom of the screen. The sent reply will include a colorful thumbnail of the selected message.
Tag / Mention Group Members
Tag / Mention Group Members enables users to tag a particular person in the group by adding the @ symbol in front of their name. It works in a similar way to how you tag people on other popular Social Networking and Messaging Apps.
* This feature is not rolled out in our pre-built iOS user interface yet.
Video and Voice Calling
Increasing Users Engagement in your business is paramount for our Channelize Team. Our Messaging experience has always been great to make more peer-to-peer users engagement. With the launch of new Video and Voice Calling feature we have geared towards taking the users engagement to the next level.
In coming months, we will be developing more features around Video & Voice Calling.
Improved API Security
Channelize messaging APIs are now more effective at protecting the content of messages, and member authentication. We have completely revamped API authentication.
Enhancements in Android Interface
