Access chat using API
We are developing an app and wondering if there is a way to download the chat after the meeting is over? We know that users can download it, but it would be great if we could get the chat using the API.
Another question that we have is: Is on the roadmap to give support to send files using the chat ?
Thanks in advance
Hi @jesus thanks for asking - these are great questions!
RE: Chat API
- To protect participant privacy we don’t store chat messages by default, so we don’t have a chat API that can be used in this way.
- However, you could set something up on your side that captures chat messages by listening for
sendAppMessage(). Here’s more info about that.
- Another option would be to use our CometChat integration which provides additional chat features. Here’s a tutorial on using CometChat with Daily.
RE: Send files via chat
- I’ll share this feature request with our Product team. In the meantime, you can submit an official feature request here. This allows others to vote on the feature and also ensures that our Product team will notify you if this feature gets added to our roadmap.
