Please provide a more detailed explanation of what you are trying to achieve,

Please show your relevant blocks,
if relevant, your data or lists,

I tried it, and the other free one, neither seem to work "for me".

You may want to have a look at pubnub and make your own chat room ( I believe pubnub is more or less free for low levels of use.

I want to create app with chat view like this but I need another type chat view extension that also support images

I'm not a big fan of extensions.
The more extensions, the more chance you will get stuck when the ground shifts under you.

Android is an earthquake zone.

Here is a free blocks based technique ...!msg/mitappinventortest/WEat3QJXUX4/-r3mNVSIAwAJ

Perhaps something like this that uses emoji (not real images but a text font). It shows text in a Spinner but it wi

What emoji your phone can create and use depends on its Android version and its keyboard. Some phones cannot display emoji that work on other phones.

works in the example chat app

on an Android 8.1 tablet and displays in a Spinner (to the left) and a ListViewer (to the right)

using the following text script:

Choose an Avatar,Fancy Fox :wolf:, Son Flour :sunflower:, Grey Mouse :rat:, Zebra Crossing :zebra:, Corgi Tale :cat2:, Red Bug :beetle:, Dino :sauropod:, Colorful Pony :unicorn:, Cowabunga :cow2:, Pink Oink :pig:, Black Cat :cat:, Two Humps :camel:, White Rabbit :rabbit2:, Young Chic :hatching_chick:, Hedge It :hedgehog:, Bat Wing :bat:, Brown Bear :bear:, Smiling Panda :panda_face:, Track Me :paw_prints:, Whoo Owl :owl:, Lion Around :lion:, Tux Penguin​:penguin:, Green Frog :frog:, T-Rex :t_rex:, Cricket Chirp :cricket:

Perhaps knowing this will help you. Typing : ) does not display :slight_smile: but copying and pasting the emoji using the keyboard emoji characters works . Try using an emoji keyboard character; the emoji symbols does not necessarily work. All the symbols you see display in my Android 8.1 but only a few display in my 4.2.2 cell phone.

Simply when you send your chat message, attach an emoji to the rest of the text and you will display the chat text along with the emoji.

Not exactly what you want but

  • it is free
  • provides some of the functionality you want
  • looks fairly nice but then it is free
