Message Status

Given the Chat API relies on the Relay API for peer communication, we can build the following message status:

  • Pending
  • Published
  • Delivered

Pending

A message is considered pending from the moment the Chat API has called the Relay API to publish the message.

This should be a very short period of time given that the Chat API and Relay API are already connected.

A message could be pending longer given certain network conditions: hanging websocket, offline internet access or slow internet connection.

Published

A message is considered published from the moment the Relay API has received acknowledgement from the Relay Server that the message has been received and will be relayed to its receiver.

Delivered

A message is considered delivered from the moment the peer has sent a corresponding response to the wc_chatMessage request as acknowledgement of message receipt.
