1. Voice and video calls in MyChat for iPhone

Video call in MyChat for iPhoneFinally, call work in MuyChat application for iOS. As usual, all regulated by rights. Make calls from iPhone to Windows, Linux, Android, browser, and vise versa.

Both voice and video calls work with option to switch cameras "on a fly".

Besides, the application can be installed quickly without specifying a server's address and own login/password, but directly from MyChat Client for Windows or from WEB lobby of your server by using a QR code.

2. Custom menu in MyChat for Windows

Add own custom menu in Windows application for MyChat Client:

Custom menu MyChat

Add icons, menu text, create attachments (two levels maximum), enable or disable items, add separation lines.

Clicking on a menu item triggers a script on the server, then the link of the Help section opens in a browser, and a specified action executes.

This option is configured on the server, the section "Tools", "Custom menu". You can also find a simple template as an example.

Make various menus for different user groups; allow of forbid them by using rights on the server.

The tool is quite convenient and flexible. If you have any questions regarding usage and configuration, post them on the support.

3. Function for selective deletion of a private dialogue history

In the scripting engine on the server, we made a new function mRemovePrivateHistory. As a result, you have a powerful tool for deleting private dialogues for any period of time.

Delete for all or selected users, for the whole period or, for example, for last month only. All user devices synchronized, and if the private history is deleted on the server it will be also deleted om clients as soon as the synchronization process begins during connection to the server.

Call this function both manually and by using server events, for example, according to time or command to a built-in bot.

4. Various improvements

We made an option to enter the WEB lobby on the server by clicking on a button in its interface:

Entering MyChat lobby from the server

Implemented sending files from Telegram to MyChat. Improved work with Asterisk servers. We've learned to send thumbnails of large images into the chat (for example, PNG files with transparency and size of several hundred megabytes).

Also, the chat has learned to detect Windows 11 for correct work. Now MyChat Client works on all Windows OS, from XP to 11, including server operating system from Microsoft.
