There are couple of ways to share a file, you can share a file the the media controller, the gallery view, or through chat.

Sharing through Media Controller

  • Click the last icon in the media controller at the bottom of your screen.

  • Click the 'File or image' tab in the new menu

  • File explorer will now open and you can choose the file or image you would like to share.

  • If an image is shared, it will be displayed in the gallery view for everyone. It can also be downloaded by those who are currently at the conversation zone.

Tip: If you would like to share multiple files, first compress them into a zip file, so you won't have to share everything individually!

Quick share in Gallery View

If your gallery view is already opened, simply drag the file you want to share into the kosy app screen and it will be shared!

How to stop sharing

  • When you are sharing something, the 'screen' icon will change to a square stop icon, click this to stop sharing.

  • If you leave the conversation zone, the sharing will stop automatically.

If multiple people are sharing a picture or file at the same time, you can change views in the top left selection dropdown.

Sharing in chat

If you would like to share a file or image through chat, first open the channel or the private chat you would like to share the file to.
Next, select the Paperclip button below the input field.
Select you file, and upload.

Your file will now be shared inside that chat, other users can view and download it.
If applicable, and the file is not too large, a preview of the file will also be shown inside of the chat.
