You’ll need to integrate a chat solution, but how do you build one that encourages modern connection through futuristic features?

Stream sponsored Web Dev Simplified YouTube to provide a developer-focused guide on implementing Stream's React Chat SDK to create a Messenger-style clone.

In just an hour and a half, this tutorial demonstrates how to build a robust and feature-rich app with a design and usage pattern similar to that of Facebook Messenger.

With a few simple lines of code, you can build the real-time chat experience your users deserve and would expect to see on their favorite social media app, Facebook—complete with emojis and reactions, GIFs, rich URLs, threads and replies, all supported by an enterprise-level of reliability and scalability.

Jump on in— we can’t wait for you to see how easy it is! Activate your free, 30-day Stream chat trial to follow along and create your own Facebook Messenger clone app.

We hope you enjoy the video. And remember, leave the heavy lifting to Stream—we’ve got chat covered.

Happy Coding!
