AirSend’s Android Update: Dark Mode, Direct Message, UI Improvements
Alright, folks. It’s time for another update to our Android app, AirSend. Our mission is to deliver an app that allows productivity to happen from one space. To do that, we made some slight improvements to our app. Here is what they are:
UX Improvements: quoting messages
Without further ado, let’s dive into the latest AirSend Android updates!
Android app users can now experience a new feel to AirSend with full dark mode support. With less strain on the eyes, users can now work seamlessly into the night.
Android app users can now seamlessly DM other team members or groups from within a channel. Click on the user’s picture and a drop-down option for direct messaging will be available. Direct messaging offers minimum clicking, so users can seamlessly chat one-on-one with other team members, and not lose a beat from the main discussion.
Users can now view clear date separators, read receipts, and a slide-right option in which you can quickly quote and reply to the specific message. By sliding right on a specific message, users can send messages faster, thus getting work done faster. See the video above!

So let’s say you and your friend want to venture out and connect with a small group of people who carry the same interests as you. How do you take the first step in building your own community?
One of the more popular answers is online communities. Having online communities through real-time chat programs are an effective way to form online connections with other people.
Sometimes, we don’t always have the tools needed to build a community. That is why we made AirSend. With AirSend’s new feature of public channels, the possibilities are endless with your community
The latest and greatest feature to AirSend allows anyone to build their favorite communities.
AirSend’s public channels add all the features needed to help seamlessly run your community. Features, such as built-in actions, premium file organization, built-in wiki, and office integrations.
AirSend also offers a clean UI design, which makes the usability is incredibly easy.
The question is then, “How do I best set up my AirSend community?” In this blog post, we are going to show you how to make an AirSend public channel in five easy steps. Let’s dive in.
Create your Snazzy Channel
Before we can dive into the exciting part, we first need to get through the basics. This is the first and probably most important step before doing anything else.
This is a vital step because not only is it the gateway to creating your community, but this is also where you show your fellow members what your community is about.
As you can see from our lovely gif, creating a public channel is as easy as that! Here is also a mini-step guide for creating your public channel.
Click on the large box that says, “Create a Channel”
Make your Community name and description
Checkmark the “make channel public.”
Now let’s get to the exciting parts.
Customize your Community!
Customize your community however you want! Build your own wiki, change the background, and even change the logo. This is a great feature because when users set up their community with AirSend, they do not have overwhelming options for customizations.
Communities lie in connections being made. Having aesthetic features are extra steps to help you get there.
Copy Channel URL
That’s it! All you have to do is copy the public link (invite URL) found in your channel settings. Your channel settings is located at the top of the screen. After you have copied your link, send it to everyone you know. Anyone who has your public link can send it to other people as well.
The cool thing with AirSend public channels is that users will be able to see their community grow. Start connecting with people over AirSend. Take control of who you want in your community, and most importantly have fun with it. This next step will be for new members joining an AirSend community.
Explore your Future Community
For potential members, users will receive a public link address. Clicking on the public link address gives you a read-only view and the ability to download files. After exploring the contents, all you have to do is create an AirSend account and join your public channel.
Great! Now you have a complete step-by-step guide on how to make a community with AirSend. Get inspired and build connections.

Our latest update to Android is finally here! In this blog post, we will be discussing all the latest updates to the AirSend app in Android. A lot of you have been requesting some additional features to the Android apps, and we listened! Here are some of the latest updates with more to come!
AirSend can now support Google Sign-in
Native Share in AirSend
Whether you are a researcher, content developer, creative, tax accountant, or even a realtor, you can now share files, documents, and pictures directly to the AirSend channel using the native share option. AirSend also has the option to native share links from your mobile chrome browser.
Having the native share option eliminates the extra click times of jumping from one app to another to share a file. Talk about convenience.
Viewing Office Files
If you are giving a presentation with your phone, but find it hard to pull up the required office app, you no longer have to feel frustrated. AirSend’s clean UI design allows for smooth viewing of files, such as docx., pptx., and xlsx. Even with multiple sheets.
This allows for easy usage of scrolling and switching between files.
You can now watch your media directly in AirSend. Have a recording you wish to share with your friends? Or perhaps a recorded business meeting you wanted to refer to. Well, now you can view your recordings, plus more!
We now support mp4, m4a, fmp4, webm, mkv, mp3, ogg, wav, mpg, flv, aac, and amr.
New “Open with” feature.
Having the new “open with” feature minimizes extra click time. Rather than having to download extra apps, or even downloading the file itself, to only open it in another app, AirSend offers the ability to open the file directly with another app.
This makes for easier context switching, and most of all, time.
File and Folder Permissions
With the latest update, you can now add, move, delete, and download files in all channels that you are a part of.
AirSend is a versatile digital workspace to share files, send messages, and complete tasks. See how AirSend can help you. To see the latest Android update, click here.
We have recently launched an update that enables clients who do/do not have an AirSend account to email file attachments, images, and videos directly to their AirSend channel! We’ll give you a moment to digest this. We know, it is amazing too.
What is Email to Channel Feature?
This new feature allows you and your clients to send a message via email directly to your channel. The beauty of it all is that it requires little-to-no effort to do. Say, for example, you are a real estate agent and you need a buyer representation agreement from your client. How do you let your client know you need the documents?
Well, now you have three options:
One, you can message your client directly from your AirSend channel.
Two, you can reply from your email using your unique channel email address.
Three, you can respond via email to an AirSend channel notification (see pictures below).
If your client does not have an AirSend account, no problem!
Here is what they do:
Hit reply from their AirSend channel notification
Attach the required documents needed
The documents will magically appear in the designated channel. Having this feature allows for easier organization of files. Did you also know that sending messages to your channel through email can act as a reminder for yourself?
Sharing Files Efficiently
Let’s give another example. Let’s say there is a channel designated for hiring. This channel has five members. Rather than having one email listed on your hiring page, you can now put your unique channel email address. By doing so, applicants’ resumes will be sent directly to the human resource channel, where everyone can view the resumes. This feature minimizes the time it takes for five separate members to view a resume in five separate emails. Additionally, this feature opens up many use cases, such as a shared inbox (i.e. channel) for hiring managers, or as an endpoint for a website contact form.
With AirSend, the possibilities are endless. For a continuous update on our non-stop productivity train, click here.
