Users can interact with other Cliq users in real-time using the Chat Window. It includes a variety of actions that can be used to make communication more effective and engaging.
Let's look into each option:
  1. Info- In the chat header of the window you will find information about the user such as Contact ImageContact Name, and Status. To gain additional information, click the Channel image.
  2. The Search icon - It opens up a search bar where you can look for anything related to the user's chat using keywords.
  3. The Call icon - You can use this option to start an audio and video call, as well as a screen share.
