Sendbird UIKit for React Native offers a variety of features that enhance chat experience. With essential messaging features like typing indicator and read receipt, users can have more engaged conversations.
Sendbird UIKit for React Native supports two types of channels: group channel and Supergroup channel. To learn more about the different types of channels, see Channel types in Chat SDK.
A group channel is a chat that allows close interactions between a limited number of users. In order to join this type of channel, an invitation from a channel member is required by default.
