- Ready-to-use already styled solution for quick implementation;

- List of dialogs, including tete-a-tete and group chats, markers for unread messages and last user message view;
- List of messages (incoming and outcoming) with history pagination and already calculated dates headers;
- Different avatars with no specific realization of image loading - you can use any library you want;
- Selection mode for interacting with messages;
- Links highlighting
- Easy dates formatting;
- Your own models for dialogs and messages - there is no converting needed;
