Building a chat app from scratch can be a difficult, frustrating process that can take months — and that’s just for a bare-bones messaging application with none of the engaging features today’s savvy app users expect.

But with Stream’s Chat API, coding doesn’t have to be a huge headache.

Stream challenged developer Vadim Savin, CEO of the educational site Not Just Development, to see how fast he could build a real-time mobile messaging application using the Stream React Native Chat SDK.

The results were impressive. In just two hours, Vadim built a messaging app that rivals chat apps from some of the world’s most popular social media platforms, such as Signal and WhatsApp.
