  • Publication number: 20190116339
    Abstract: During a communication session facilitated by a first communication service between a first device and a second device, a processor may receive a request to execute a feature not supported by the first communication service. The processor may also identify a second communication service that does support the feature. Further, the processor may then cause the communication session to transition from the first communication service to the second communication service.

  • Publication number: 20190089797
    Abstract: Modifying a notification on one client device can trigger the generation and transmission of a silent notification to another client device that is associated with the same user account. The silent notification can include instructions to query for and modify a similar notification, if present, on the other client device. Silent notifications that are undeliverable can be stored in offline storage and delivery can be reattempted at a later point in time.

  • Patent number: 10187430
    Abstract: In some implementations, a network daemon can manage access to a mobile device's network interface. The network daemon (e.g., network connection managing process) can monitor the condition of the mobile device's network connection on one or more interfaces. The network daemon can monitor many conditions on the mobile device. The network daemon can receive background networking requests from network clients (e.g., processes, applications) that specify criteria for initiating a network connection. The network daemon can then smartly manage network connections taking into account network conditions, mobile device conditions and/or client criteria received in the client request. This can help reduce battery life impact, memory usage, likelihood of call drops, data usage cost, and load on network operators.

  • Patent number: 10116900
    Abstract: Method and apparatus for initiating and managing a chat session are described herein. According to one embodiment, user activities with respect to the data processing system are monitored, including user activities that are unrelated to chat services. In response to a request to initiate a chat session between a local user and a remote user, a first chat service account is selected from a list of chat service accounts associated with the remote user based on the monitored user activities. A chat session is initiated using the selected first chat service account of the remote user and a second chat service account selected for the local user. Certain information is displayed within a chat window indicating that the chat session is conducted between the first and second chat service accounts. Other methods and apparatuses are also described.

  • Patent number: 10064026
    Abstract: A unified message delivery between multiple devices is disclosed. Sending messages through a local communications link, such as but not limited to at least one of a Bluetooth connection and a peer-to-peer WiFi connection, can lead to faster transmission times and reduced server load. When the local communications link is unavailable or not suitable, the messages can be sent through a network and a push server. In some examples, messages can be sent through both the local communications link and through the network and the push server. Duplicates of a received message can be avoided by utilizing indicators. In some examples, one or more devices can include queue(s) to ensure ordered delivery of a plurality of messages when a local communications link and network connection become unavailable.

  • Patent number: 9965132
    Abstract: In an instant messaging application, a message container (e.g., a stylized text bubble) is provided for indicating that an activity has occurred in a non-foreground chat. The message container can be displayed in the chat where the activity occurred. The message container can contain a portion of the message (e.g., the beginning of the message). The message container can contain a summary of the message. The message container can have an arbitrary shape or appearance. The user can define or select the appearance of the message container.

  • Publication number: 20170220212
    Abstract: An electronic device includes a touch-sensitive surface, a display, and a camera sensor. The device displays a message region for displaying a message conversation and receives a request to add media to the message conversation. Responsive to receiving the request, the device displays a media selection interface concurrently with at least a portion of the message conversation. The media selection interface includes a plurality of affordances for selecting media for addition to the message conversation, the plurality of affordances includes a live preview affordance, at least a subset of the plurality of affordances includes thumbnail representations of media available for adding to the message conversation, and the live preview affordance is associated with a live camera preview. Responsive to detecting selection of the live preview affordance, the device captures a new image based on the live camera preview and selects the new image for addition to the message conversation.

  • Publication number: 20170083202
    Abstract: A device provides user interfaces for displaying messages in a messaging application. The device receives a plurality of messages from a first participant within a time interval and determines whether the plurality of messages meets message grouping criteria. In accordance with a determination that the plurality of messages does not meet the message grouping criteria, the device displays a plurality of separate bounded message areas representing the plurality of messages. In accordance with a determination that the plurality of messages meets the message grouping criteria, the device displays a single group bounded message area representing the plurality of messages.

  • Publication number: 20170083189
    Abstract: A device provides user interfaces for a messaging application. The device receives a first message and displays a representation of the first message, where the first message is scheduled to be deleted upon satisfaction of expiration criteria. The device displays an affordance for keeping the first message. In accordance with a determination that the affordance was selected prior to the satisfaction of the expiration criteria, the device keeps the first message. In accordance with a determination that the expiration criteria has been satisfied without detecting selection of the affordance, the device ceases to display the representation of the first message on the display.

  • Patent number: 9603094
    Abstract: In some implementations, a mobile device can be configured to monitor environmental, system and user events. The occurrence of one or more events can trigger adjustments to system settings. In some implementations, the mobile device can be configured to keep frequently invoked applications up to date based on a forecast of predicted invocations by the user. In some implementations, the mobile device can receive push notifications associated with applications that indicate that new content is available for the applications to download. The mobile device can launch the applications associated with the push notifications in the background and download the new content. In some implementations, before running an application or accessing a network interface, the mobile device can be configured to check energy and data budgets and environmental conditions of the mobile device to preserve a high quality user experience.

  • Patent number: 9577976
    Abstract: Registering a client computing device for online communication sessions. A registration server receives a message that has a push token that is unique to the client computing device and a phone number of the client computing device from an SMS (Short Message Service) transit device, which received an SMS message having the push token from the client computing device and determined the phone number of the client computing device from that SMS message. The registration server associates the push token and the phone number and stores it in a registration data store, which is used for inviting users for online communication sessions.
