(MOBILEBETA) - Mobile beta test
xat will soon be starting a wider beta test of the xat chat app for android devices.
You need the MOBILEBETA power to login to the app for the time being.
In the future the use of the app will be free - and you WILL NOT need the power to access it. We are only charging to limit the use of the app while in testing stages. We also advise not to buy the app via trades as this could be at a higher substantial cost than store cost.
The app is still in the Beta stages, meaning it is under development and there is no guarantees this will work on your device.
If you find a new bug you can report it here: http://community.xat.com - You will need a separate account to do this.
If you find a security issue please report it to a volunteer via ticket if you are a paid user. If you are not a paid user then please fill out http://xat.la/newticket
To install the app download from the xat web site here: http://util.xat.com/xat.apk?1.28-xTgW
(DO NOT INSTALL THE APP FROM ANY OTHER SOURCE)
How to install it on your phone: http://www.cnet.com/how-to/how-to-install-apps-outside-of-google-play/
You can then log into the application by clicking the settings tab and logging in with the account that the power is on and activated.
How do I log in?
Click the more option (3 vertical dots). Put in your username and password. Press "Login". Then click the chat bubble. You may need to login a second time to get push notifications to work. Note there is no login succeeded message.
I have an iPhone can I run the app?
xat is working on an iPhone App that is similar to the Android app. Unfortunately there is no equivalent beta program for iphone so iphone users will need to wait until the app is more complete.
What is the lowest version of android that can run the app?
The minimum is Jelly Bean (API level 16). But the later the version and the faster the phone the better it will work.
Is there any other charges I should be aware of?
The application is completely free to use with us assuming you have the power. However the application will have full access to your data including both WiFi and GSM(3g/4g) we therefore suggest only using the application at this time if you have a unlimited plan. We will not be responsible for any charges made due to data allowance and you accept this when downloading the application. As agreed upon in the terms of service.
