Chapter 2. Chat

eXo Chat is an instant messaging application that allows users to sync up and take action quickly. Tightly integrated with eXo Platform 4, eXo Chat empowers the real-time collaboration among teams and individuals.

Here is summary of what eXo Chat brings:

  • Discussions: Create quick conversation with your contacts, from group to specific person.

  • Status: Don't want to be interrupted, or not in the mood for a chat? Simply change your status from the Chat menu or directly in the chat window.

  • Notifications: Follow notifications sent to you in real time, read and answer messages immediately or later when you are free.

  • Favorites: Add or remove your contacts to/from the favorites list with one click.

  • Collaboration: Leverage collaboration with a set of actions (creating an event/task, sharing a link/file, asking a question or raising your hand), directly within eXo Chat.

  • Calls within Chat: Create face-to-face communication by calling your contacts directly within the chat window.

  • Recording: Save your discussions from the beginning to the end that can be exported to a wiki page or sent to emails.
