ICQ New is a VoIP and cross-platform messenger. The acronym ICQ stands for “I Seek You” in English. The client was created by the Israeli business Mirabilis in 1996, and was then purchased by AOL in 1998, and subsequently by the Mail.Ru Group in 2010.
In November 1996, the ICQ client program and service were made publicly accessible to download. While real-time chat was not new at the time (Internet Relay Chat (IRC) being the most popular platform), the concept of a fully centralized service with individual user accounts focused on one-on-one conversations laid the groundwork for later instant messaging services like AIM, and its influence can still be seen in modern social media applications. ICQ was the first widely used instant messaging network.
ICQ has over 100 million registered accounts at its peak in 2001. There were around 42 million daily users at the time of the takeover of Mail.Ru in 2010. ICQ has had 11 million monthly users since 2013. The Mail.Ru Group, which owns ICQ, has chosen to release its new ICQ New software, which is based on its messenger, in 2020. On April 6, 2020, the updated messenger was unveiled to the general public.
A private chat is a dialogue that takes place between two users. Because to cloud synchronization, the conversation may be viewed from any device after logging into an account. A user can erase a sent message at any moment, whether in their own chat or in the chat of their discussion partner, and instead get a notification that the message has been deleted.
Any significant messages from group or private conversations, as well as an infinite amount and quantity of media assets, can be transmitted to one’s own discussion. In essence, this conversation serves as a free cloud storage service.
These are unique discussions in which up to 25 thousand people can participate at the same time. A group can be created by any user. A user’s phone number may be hidden from other participants; advanced polling is available; it is possible to identify which group members have viewed a message; and alerts for messages from certain group members can be turned off.
A blog-like alternative. Authors of channels can send postings as text messages and attach media items. Subscribers receive a notification when the post is published, just like they do with regular and group conversations. The channel author does not have to reveal any information in the channel description and can stay anonymous.
Anyone may use a particular API-bot to construct a bot, which is a simple software that performs certain operations and interacts with the user. Bots may be used for a wide range of purposes, from amusement to business.
Stickers (small graphics or photos conveying emotion) may be used to make communication via the app more expressive and customized. Users can choose from an existing sticker collection or create their own. Furthermore, the program will propose a sticker during dialogue based on machine learning.
Masks are real-time pictures that are overlaid on the camera. They may be added to images, overlaid on video calls, and distributed to other users.
A user’s nickname is a made-up name. When searching for and adding user contacts, it can be used in place of a phone number. Users can share their contact information without giving a phone number by using a pseudonym.
Short sentences that show above the message box and may be used to respond to messages are known as smart replies. ICQ NEW analyzes a conversation’s content and proposes a few pre-programmed responses.
Audio messages may now be sent over ICQ NEW. People who do not want or are unable to listen to the audio can have it automatically transcribed into text. The user only needs to click the appropriate button to see the message in text format.
Users may call each other and set up audio or video calls for up to five persons in addition to text chatting. AR-masks can be utilized during the video conference.
