Your own chat app

Apple App Store Google Play Store


Q-municate comes with powerful instant messaging right out of the box. Powered by the flexible XMPP protocol and Quickblox signalling technologies, with compatibility for server-side chat history, group chats, attachments and user avatars, it's pretty powerful. It also has chat bubbles and user presence (online/offline).



Q-municate users can sign-up with just a Facebook account. They can also update their profile picture, status message, contact details and avatar.



Send photos, videos and voice recordings with ease and with no limits - these files are stored safely in the Quickblox cloud.



Whether it's the football team or your family, creating a group chat is so simple that your grandma could do it (and if she does, it's easy to leave too)

Video calling

One of the coolest technologies of the 21st century, Q-municate has HD video calling powered by WebRTC right out of the box. It's peer-to-peer to reduce latency and bandwidth and has a simple user interface that you'd expect from the tech giants - easy camera switching, muting and soon the ability to record video.

The cross-platform solution

Q-municate uses WebRTC for video and audio calling meaning it’s a great cross-platform solution. WebRTC itself it open-source, so you can modify the code as much as you wish, or you can trust the thousands of skilled developers who contributed to it’s development.

Push notifications

Instant, easy and free notifications are fully integrated into both the iOS and Android versions of Q-municate. Receive notifications for chat messages, incoming calls and any other custom alert that you want to send from the CMS style messages dashboard. As you'd expect, they're also presence aware - so users only see them when they should.



Send alerts to your users whenever you want - whether it be a product update, a warning notification or just to say happy birthday - it's available.


Custom messages

Customise messages from chatting friends with the aid of merge tags, badge counter customisation and more. You can convey exactly the message you want.



Configure your push settings, send alerts to your users and view your past messages through the easy-to-use Quickblox CMS-style dashboard
