What is a 1-1 chat and how to initiate a 1-1 chat in Cliq?

1-1 chats are individual chats that can be used when a user wants to engage with another user. Unlike channels or group chats where many users interact, 1-1 chats provide more informal and private communication.
You can initiate a 1-1 chat in Cliq in the following ways:
  1. If the user is a contact, you can select Contacts from the left sidebar and click on the username. A chat window appears, type in the message you want to send in the text area.

  1. If the user is not a contact, type the username in the search bar and select the user you want to chat with. Click on Chat with user and type in the message you want to send in the text area.

  1. To have a 1-1 chat with an external user, the user must be your Contact.
