Could someone help me out with implementing a chat feature in my app?

Hello there,

I am working on an app using MIT App Inventor and I'm trying to implement a chat feature where users can send messages to each other. I've looked through the documentation and tried a few things, but I'm still having some issues.

I have Created a Firebase project and integrated it with my app to store messages.

Implemented the user authentication system using Firebase Authentication.

Created the UI for the chat screen with a textbox for typing messages and a list view to display messages.

However, I am stuck on how to actually send and receive messages in real-time. I've looked into using Firebase Realtime Database but I'm not sure how to properly set it up for this purpose.

Could someone please guide me on how to properly implement the chat feature using Firebase Realtime Database or suggest any other method that might be more suitable for this purpose?

Any help or assistance would be greatly appreciated.

there are a lot of topic about firebase and chat. Have you try to search the community?
