Prebuilt Messenger Apps

If you prefer to try Pre-built messenger apps instead of building it, you can download it from:

Get it on Google Play Get it on Apple App Store

 

Generating OTP for the demo

The messenger App requires a valid phone number and OTP to login. Note that, we do not send OTP for App login. Instead, you can generate OTP for any number from the mesibo console

Note that, all the users are private to your app/account. The demo app can not see or communicate with users from other apps. Also, the demo app uses contact synchronization to find other users of your app and hence ensure to use the correct phone number and other users are in your phone book.

Documentation

The documentation for the messenger is available here - A fully featured WhatsApp clone using mesibo

It describes - Compilation Instructions (Trivial though) - Download backend source code and host it on your server (the default one is located on the mesibo server) - Hosting entire real-time messaging and call server in your premise - Other Customizations and Rebranding
