Upgrading to V3

Upgrading from v2.x to v3 is fairly simple. Below are the major changes that are released as a part of CometChat Pro v3:

📘

Please Note

v3 apps are compatible only with v3.x SDKs and will not function with v2.x SDKs. In case you want to migrate an existing v2 app to v3, you can achieve this from the CometChat Dashboard.

Delivery Receipts

In v2.x, the messages were being marked as delivered internally by the SDKs. Starting v3, we have stopped marking the messages as delivered internally and this will have to be managed via the SDKs.

You can read more about the markAsDelivered() method here.

Read Receipts

Starting v3.0, the method signature has been changed. Now the markAsRead() takes 4 parameters: messageId ,receiverId, receiverType & senderId as input. This method will mark all the messages before the provided messageId for the conversation with the specified receiverId as read. Also, we have added one more signature of markAsRead() which takes only 1 parameter: message Object as input.

You can read more about the markAsRead() method here.

//v2.x

CometChat.markAsRead(messageId, receiverId, receiverType);

//v3.x

CometChat.markAsRead(messageId, receiverId, receiverType, senderId);
// OR
CometChat.markAsRead(message);

User/Group Tags in Conversation

In v2.x, the user/group tags were by default fetched in a Conversation Object while fetching the Conversation List.
Starting v3, we have added a method (withUserAndGroupTags()) to fetch the user/group tags in a Conversation Object while fetching the Conversation List.

ConversationsRequest conversationsRequest = new ConversationsRequest.ConversationsRequestBuilder()
  .setLimit(10)
  .withUserAndGroupTags(true)
  .build();
