Welcome to the first step in building out and integrating our robust chat solution! 🚀


Creating an App

To get things started, head on over to your CometChat dashboard. From the account level, you will be able to seamlessly create new apps (projects) but also manage existing ones. To create your first app, simply follow the instructions outlined below:

  1. Log into your CometChat account


  2. Select Add New App


  3. Fill out all the appropriate fields and Add App (we strongly recommend using our v3 💪)

💡 We recommend creating two apps - one for testing and one for production.

💡 If you have different users on separate platforms and you do not want them communicating with each other, we recommend creating two
separate production apps for each respective user-base.

💡 When selecting your Region, select a region that is closest to your users for better performance.


Changing App Names

If you've made a mistake or would like to change the names on your apps to reference your projects better, simply:

  1. Click on Settings and fill out the field below App Name


  2. Once finalized, click on Save Settings

Don't forget to also upgrade your app to our free forever plan! Any new app that's created will expire in 30 days unless an upgrade has been made. To continue testing or using the app, please see here.
