Stay Connected With Direct Chat 

Finding and chatting with like-minded people has never been easier thanks to the Padoq community. Long gone are the days of switching between several apps just to get hold of someone – with direct chat, you can instantly have a private conversation with another member or even create a group with the people that live nearby. Here’s how to always stay in touch with the people that matter the most: 

Managing Your Chats

Got several chats on the go? Luckily, managing your conversations is simple. You can access your communications with other members from the Padoq home feed. Once you’re on the chat page, you can look back on your previous conversations, delete any messages, and add or remove users from group chats.
