Bugs Fixed

  • SDK displays a message body instead of message title from payload as a proactive welcome message.
  • A color configuration value for links is being ignored from the conversation message containing a text as well as link together.
  • The background color of buttons in horizontal type structured content will overlap over the structured content borders.
  • When using SDK’s clear history feature, an infinite loading spinner will not get reset from the conversation window after history gets cleared.
  • Accessibility only announces the new message but not the number of new messages received.
