        I use SendBird because it provides features wherein we can create group channels with our users. It supports video, audio, pdf, jpg files to be sent across. It also allows clickable actions within chat which helps the user in selecting options. It provides Android SDK which we have extensively used.

        I recommend SendBird to some novices. Because I'm the one of novices about Web-Programming.

        Nowadays, I'm preparing for setting up my own business. So I need to build a web site and make some function to communicate each other who uses my service through web & mobile.

        Especially to me(newcommer), Socket Comm, TCP, UDP.. etc

        they make me disgusting. To understanding alone with out others helps is too hard for me. Frankly speaking I almost give up making some chatting function, but I meet Sendbird.

        That's all. I made chatting function at my website. It takes only 1hour to understand, attach, adjust for my website.

        I really recommend this to everybody to spend less time for chatting service.

        Just tried the sample app and it just worked right away on our app. Pretty easy to use.

        The free tier only allows up to 1000 mau, but probably is be enough for me to test out a chat feature quickly with our users.

        Have compared with few other solutions out there and this one seems to be the easiest to use.

        We used Sendbird for the chat functionality for our app. Their software works perfectly for our app and helped us get through a critical milestone. Their team was very helpful and quickly answered some last minute questions we had. Thanks Sendbird!
