Our latest update for Android devices comes with two awesome features:
- Push notifications (for Android O.S. 2.2 or higher)
- Message delivery notifications
Now let’s talk a bit more about the new features.
A great addition to the new version is the push notifications feature. This will allow you to appear online to all your friends even when you have the application closed. This way your battery will last longer and you will consume less data. If any of your contacts send you a chat or call you Nimbuzz will push a new notification in your status bar letting you know that someone is looking for you. Smart, convenient and simple. The feature is available for Android 2.2 or higher.
To enable push notifications go to: Settings->Notifications-> Enable.
The new message delivery notifications will display:
- 1 check mark (✓) when your message was successfully delivered to the Nimbuzz servers
- 2 check marks (✓✓) when your message was successfully delivered to the person you are chatting with. Please note this does not indicate that your chat was read by the other person but only delivered.
The new 2.0.8 version comes also with a nifty little feature called: Synchronize with device. If you activate it you will see all your Nimbuzz friends in your phone’s contact list and you will be able to start a chat or a call with them, right from the phone’s contact list.
We hope you will enjoy the new features and if you have any questions or suggestions please let us know.
