Channelize’s new release contains many new features and enhancements that can make big impact on your growth. In this release, they've focussed on making communication amongst your members natural and free-flowing.

 

Video and Voice Calling - First 10,000 minutes per month FREE

 

Increasing Users Engagement in your business is paramount for Channelize Team. Their Messaging experience has always been great to make more peer-to-peer users engagement. With the launch of new Video and Voice Calling feature they have geared towards taking the users engagement to the next level.

In coming months, more features around Video & Voice Calling will be developed by Channelize.io.

 

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.

This 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.

 

Improved API Security

Channelize messaging APIs are now more effective at protecting the content of messages, and member authentication. They've completely revamped API authentication.
