Chat UX improvements

  • Added: New dynamic group chat icon
    A set of avatars will now display on a group chat, showing avatars of some of the participants, along with a counter for the number of users in the chat. But, of course, you can always set your own icon too!




  • Fixed: Spacing on the typing indicator.

Chat UX improvements

  • Improved: in the Inbox, unread conversations are now marked clearer:

  • Added: a "new messages" marker, which clarifies which messages you've not seen yet. 

If you use Themes, both features will automatically adjust to your existing settings. The dot uses your "highlight" color, so it will automatically fit your design. Similarly, the marker for new messages uses the same style as day markers.
