Send typing indicators to other members

Copy link

If the startTyping() and endTyping() methods are called while the current user is typing a message in a group channel, channelDidUpdateTypingStatus(_:) in the channel delegate will be invoked on all channel members' devices except the one that belongs to the current user.


// To listen to an update from other channel members' client app,
// implement the channelDidUpdateTypingStatus() function
// with actions to perform when notified.
class GroupChannelChattingViewController: UIViewController, GroupChannelDelegate {
    func initViewController() {
        SendbirdChat.add(self as GroupChannelDelegate, identifier: UNIQUE_DELEGATE_ID)

    func channelDidUpdateTypingStatus(_ channel: GroupChannel) {
        if channel.channelURL == self.channel?.channelURL {
            let members = channel.getTypingUsers()

            // Refresh the typing status of channel members.
