Contributor spotlight

Bruno Macabeus is our featured contributor for this release. Thank you for your great work on channel creation and stopping bugs in their tracks!

Custom OAuth providers

Rocket.Chat iOS recognizes and supports custom OAuth providers on any server.

To add or enable custom OAuth providers for your server, open the server administration, navigate to OAuth Apps, and click Add Custom OAuth, or enable/disable for providers that have already been added.

Custom registration fields

If you've configured your server's registration process to require additional information like a user's job role and Twitter handle, these fields are supported on iOS.

Channel creation

Users with the required permission levels can create private, public and read-only channels from iOS.

Improved performance

This release is smaller, faster and more reliable.

Support for additional localizations

We’ve added support for Czech, French, and Polish locales.

Easily open direct messages

Open direct messages between another user by tapping their avatar or username anywhere in the app.
