VKontakte has a new messenger VK Me. The application is currently being tested. It is available for installation only in Kazakhstan and Belarus, but anyone can download the APK file. Through VK Me, you can communicate not only with text: the application has the function of recording voice messages and creating 'Stories', audio and video calls, using VK Pay and mini-applications.
Many unofficial applications for VKontakte became popular only because they hid their Online status.
In VK Me, you can configure how it will be displayed online: hide it for everyone or for certain users. If you enable this function, the status will show as 'Recently online'.
Wallpapers for chats
In 'VKontakte' there is no function of changing the wallpaper in dialogs, you can only choose between day and night themes. In VK Me, this feature is implemented: the user can choose a background from the catalog or set a photo from the gallery.
Consumes less resources
The messenger consumes less resources and weighs several times less than VKontakte: VK Me automatically saves not so many files to the cache.
Another new feature in VK Me is phantom chats. Messages in them disappear after a while. If users of the messenger like this option, it will be implemented in the main VKontakte application.
Disappearing messages can also be sent in regular dialogues and conversations – they are marked with a special icon. The time to delete is user-selectable: the message will disappear after 1 hour, 15 minutes, 5 minutes, 1 minute, or 15 seconds.
Chat with contacts from the phone book
As with all messengers, in VK Me you can communicate with people from your contact list. When you send a message to a person you are not friends with, he receives a request for correspondence. VK Me is authorized with Vkontakte, but this is optional. If you send a link to a contact, then you yourself can invite him.
