Details On Platform Support#

stream_chat_flutter was originally created for Android and iOS mobile platforms. As Flutter matured, support for additional platforms was added and the package now has experimental support for web and desktop as detailed here.

However, platforms other than mobile may have additional constraints due to not supporting all plugins, which will be addressed by the respective plugin creators over time.
