- exchange of personal messages outside the rooms;

For the users who does not have camera in their mobile phones the developers have foreseen the download of photos from the file on the mobile phone, through the WEB-site (http://www.avacs.net/livechat/) in the Internet or by E-mail;
- advanced search by questionnaire data;
