Connection drops: Android OK, Iphone KO

nicknickny3 Comments


really a great app, very simple to use and no frills. I am using with my Android phone with two Iphone friends and it works great.
Unfortunately, when Apple devices lose connection they do not reconnect automatically. When returning to an area with some signal I am the only one left in the room.
Any idea why is that?

    Update: friend with Iphone says the phone prompts for reconnection instead of reconnecting automatically. Is there a way to do it without prompt?

    Last update: looks like iPhone tries to reconnect only once. Android keeps trying.

    I used Helmchat for the first time today. I have an iPhone 14 Pro, and Helmchat would disconnect (presumably in an area with low/no data connectivity). However, it would not always reconnect. When I stopped to check the issue, it was prompting to rejoin the room. Can there be a setting added to automatically try to rejoin the current room every minute or something like that?
