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 : )

    We've used Firebase for chat in multiple apps with up to several million users, and it's easy, no drama, and solid performance.

    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.

    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.
