Progressive Web App (PWA)
pChat also has a Progressing Web App (PWA) now!


I'm looking to release the Android app by this upcoming weekend and then possibly the Apple app the weekend after depending on Apple app store approval time (Apple is notorious for taking awhile and being picky approving apps).
Lots of updates
Hey, just released a pretty big update. You can now send audio chats, search conversations, change chat rooms from a chat room and reply to other chat messages.

The mobile layout should look better now and the left navigation bar has some changes and includes the favorites tab again.

There are also a lot of small changes around pChat too. Such as gender icons and being able to toggle between light and dark mode.

Bug Fixes
Bug fixes throughout the site.
