It's really a best plugin. It makes my website a tiny Messenger. And, most of the features are free.

I made a wordpress.org account for the sole reason of leaving a review. That's just how amazing this plugin has been! Not to mention that support goes above and beyond!! I would highly recommend this to anybody needing a messaging solution for BuddyPress. Also, would highly recommend the upgraded web socket version. It is significantly faster (not to say that it was slow before) and the perks are great!

I have already left a 5 star review and will add another 5 stars today. I had a serious problem and the plugin developers solved it in 1 hour. Excellent performance and excellent support. The BP Better Messages plugin deserves to be on par with buddypress and bbpress, which have hundreds of add-ons. A wonderful product that is constantly developing and provides website visitors with a service equal to world-class social networks and messengers. Thanks to the development team that created this plugin. I am sure that soon the number of its installations will increase hundreds of times. I give 5 stars, but he deserves a lot more. I wish success and good luck to this team!

For context, I'm running multiple buddypress plugins and was worried about compatibility, it worked without glitches and offers soo much control!!! Thank you for a job well done! looking forward to a notifications plugin from you
