Using another version

This demo defaults to using the latest build of the Chat JS SDK. To change to a different version, just open public/index.html and change the following string to point to the URL of the version you'd like to use, for example to use v3.2.1:

<script src="https://media.twiliocdn.com/sdk/js/chat/releases/3.2.1/twilio-chat.min.js"></script>
You can’t perform that action at this time.
