To register multiple concurrent handlers, pass a
UNIQUE_HANDLER_ID argument as a unique identifier into the

ThreadInfoUpdateEvent object that has the latest information about the thread. This object needs to be applied to the parent message object.

onMessageReceived()method of the channel event handler in client apps will be called.

Once the reply message has been created, the
onThreadInfoUpdated() event handler will be called since the thread info has been changed. To update thread information, the user should find the matching parent message with
targetMessageID and use the
