Today, we are proud to announce the January 2019 update to Minnit Chat. We have some great changes in this update, so let’s get started.
First, and most importantly… File Uploads are finally live! You can click the Paperclip icon in the text box to upload and send a file. Files will be stored anywhere from 14-180 days, depending on which Payment Plan you are on. Upload images, videos, PDFs, and more.
Chat Owners: Please take the time to go into your “Links, Media, and Uploads” section of the Edit Chat menu to configure who can upload files, and what they can upload. Each chat has its own monthly bandwidth limit, so you may wish to limit this to specific ranks.
Second, the “Mentioning” system is now improved. If you begin typing “@b”, for instance, you will be able to quickly see a list of users in the chat, and in your friends list, whose names begin with “B”. Continue typing, e.g. “@brk”, to narrow the search results down to those whose names begin with “brk”.
Third, you will see little context dots appear when you mouse over messages, or tap and hold on messages. This allows you to quickly mention users, interact with them, copy their message, and even report any media they upload.
Finally, the chat style has been tweaked slightly for a more modern look.
