Good cross platform chat SDK for a mobile app?

We've had a pretty poor experience with our current chat SDK provider, and are looking for alternative solutions. Any feedback would help : )

    Stream Chat

    Build, code and ship in app messaging in a few hours

    Stream makes it super simple to add Chat to your application. With a beautiful UI kit, React Components and a Go powered backend API you have everything you need to get up and running. AI based moderation is integrated into the product to help reduce your moderation work load. Stream's tech reaches over 500 million end users, it's the most performant and scalable option you can find in the market. Customers searching for reliability are typically choosing between Stream or Pubnub. If uptime is the most important to you I would recommend those 2 options. If you care about ease of use most I would choose between Stream and Sendbird.

    Contus Fly is an enterprise grade enterprise chat application API that can be used to build a standalone chat application with collaborative features. It has an SDK which can also be integrated into app backends to develop in-app chat features that dispel confusion and uncertainty in enterprise communication.

    Comparing with other providers, the pricing model is too cheap. Contus Fly suits all kinds of communication like Messaging, Voice, Video with extra-ordinary features. I should recommend Contus Fly.
  3. Tailored chat SDK support for all Business.
    Heard a lot about the messaging app. So recommended for the users.
  4. Hello Meeks, Just try Mirrorfly's chat SDK that propels smooth chat experience.

    CometChat is a great pick for chat SDK. Highly scalable & customisable: from two to a million users. It comes with ready UI with complete source code that can be modified very easily.

    Based on our own research, Intercom seems like the most scalable for both CS chat and sales, on-boarding, automation and integration. Although, I prefer pricing based on AMU, not on the numbers of users you have in your 'list', like Mailchimp does. Maybe that isn't possible if it is mobile and web...

    This is a direct competitor to Intercom, only much more cost effective.
  13. Like w most they also have a free base setup to see if it meets your reqs

    We tried Smooch after a bad experience with some other player too. We are using their SDKs for Android and iOS, as well as ready-to-go integrations with Slack and Front. Support of multiple channels can be a real plus for some applications.
