Firebase Firestore Chat App: Send Text Messages (Ep 5) – Kotlin Android Tutorial
Firebase provides a bunch of awesome services such as Firestore, Auth, Cloud Storage, Cloud Functions and Cloud Messaging. Learn how to use them in this tutorial course in which we’re making a fully fledged real-time chat app with everything you’d expect like sending images and getting notifications when we receive a new message.
In this part you will learn how to send text messages to other users. This involves working with Firestore where we will add messages to a chat channel which you learned how to create in the previous part. We will also work with recycler view and Groupie library.
This post contains all the code that’s been written in this YouTube video.
