Example chat app built with Jetpack Compose

The Jetpack Compose Chat Messaging SDK is built on a low-level chat client and provides modular, customizable Compose UI components that you can easily drop into your app. You can also make API calls directly by using the client to add custom functionality.

The Compose In-App Messaging Tutorial shows you how to set up a new Compose project and add the messaging SDK, and also includes examples of customization.
