It’s been over two weeks since I posted last time. This is the fourth report for my GSoC project. Previous two to three weeks period, I spent working on integrating media player and image viewer into KDE Connect SMS app as well as changed and improved some of my previous implementations as pointed by my mentors. The project has reached the stage where the SMS app is able to receive and display thumbnails in the chat as well as user can request to view any original attachment file just by clicking on that particular attachment thumbnail and it will get opened inside the SMS app as well as user can open it in another multimedia application present on the desktop. Here’s a demonstration video of it’s working.
Now my next step is to enable SMS app to allow users to send supported multimedia files from desktop to android side from where it will be sent to the destination’s phone number. using klinker sms-mms library. In the next post I plan to show you guys a proper working SMS-MMS app which will not only allow users to send plain text messages but multimedia files as well. 🙂
