Chat: Location based (Map Chat)

Location based chat features a Map View with overlays of users, chat rooms and objects typically centred around user's current location initially. In many use cases the communication is done both over map and in a chat room where chat room has information such as distance next to other users and map displays pop-ups with latest chat messages over user's avatars.

This is a very powerful feature to enable visual location-aware discovery and communication for social, co-working and other purposes.

Typical use cases
  • Social (discover other users / chats / objects nearby - join chats and meet new friends locally)
  • Travel (discover other users / objects nearby and get directions)
  • Business / co-working (find where your colleagues are / track deliveries / communicate over map)
