Maintenance on Shared instance on January 25th 15:00 EET (Wednesday)

Posted by Anton Dyachenko on January 24, 2017
We are writing to notify, that backend team prepared an update  of QuickBlox application,
that will be deployed by Technical Operations team on Shared instance (https://admin.quickblox.com/).
 
This update is a part of preparation (of DBs structure) for upgrade of QuickBlox application from version 2 to version 3 with a new architecture, that will be scheduled in the nearest time.
 
New QB application version has a number of improvements as well as bug fixes (which take place in the current software version).
This architecture upgrade doesn’t require changes to be made from client side, as it involves QuickBlox Technical team solely to proceed.
 
The maintenance is planned for 15:00-16:00 (EET) – 25th January.
 
During maintenance you may notice  10 min downtime and short interruptions.
Thank you in advance for understanding and patience.

Use Siri to send messages with Q-municate iOS 2.3

Posted by Igor Khomenko on January 19, 2017

Talk to Siri as you would to a friend and it can help you get things done — like sending messages.

Beginning in iOS 10, developers now can integrate Siri into their apps, thanks to Apple’s SiriKit. And with messengers, now sending a message is just a voice command away.

With Q-municate for iOS V2.3, our open-source, cross-platform video calling and instant messaging app, now you can do the same! Just ask Siri to send a message to your friend with Q-municate:

Q-municate Siri  Qmunicate_siri2 

Download Q-municate on the App Store

Also, the source code is available via GitHub, so you can play with it and integrate the same features into your app.

Let us know what do you think about it

Cheers!
