In the world of technology, there are certain things that complement each other such as telephones and headphones, consoles and controls, televisions and controls, and so on. These combinations enhance user experience while using a device. The same is true for applications, especially on social networks where a messaging service is essential. BeReal, one of the newest apps, took note of this and introduced its new feature called RealChat.
BeReal is already an app that lets you talk to your friends within its app. However, it needed something more to be considered a social network like its direct rivals. The company has since taken note of what other firms do, resulting in the release of RealChat. As the name suggests, it is a new division of the app that enables users to send direct messages to friends within the app. These messages are only shared with people the users know.
RealChat goes beyond messaging, as it allows users to send private messages without time limits and react to them as they are received. It also provides blocking and reporting features for specific users and allows message deletion. However, deleting a message doesn’t mean it is deleted in the chat of the other person. The message only gets deleted if both users delete it within 30 days.
Although BeReal has been widely accepted among younger users, it isn’t the safest app to chat on because it’s new. The tests are currently being carried out in Ireland, and it remains to be seen whether it will include an encryption system to secure everything that users write and send.
BeReal’s unique feature of taking a photo when the app says and taking advantage of the two cameras makes it popular. The new RealChat feature adds a messaging service, making it a social network in its right. As the app continues to evolve, it will be interesting to see how RealChat fares against other messaging services.
