With the new Jodel Chat Feature, it is now possible not only to exchange ideas with other Jodelers within a Jodel, but also to contact a single Jodeler and continue the conversation "in private".
How do i start a Chat with another person?
To start a Chat with a person, they must first send a request about an existing Jodel. So you can only contact those in a chat who have already commented on a Jodel and received a number.
By clicking on the Jodelers number a popup will appear "Do you want to send a chat request @2?" for example. After the request has been sent to this Jodeler, no further requests to this Person are possible.
The requested person receives a notification and can accept or reject the chat invitation.
The Chat only takes place when the request is accepted. As soon as the request has been accepted, you will receive a notification. You can find the Chat under your notifications and there under the menu "Chat (Beta)".
If you don't see a new chat there directly, "drag" the view there down once to manually update the list.
What can I do if I don't want to receive chat requests?
If you don't want to receive chat requests, open the settings in the Jodel App (on the profile icon, in the lower right, and then on the gear icon in the upper left corner)
There you will find a setting to deactivate chat requests, just use the slider.
How do I change the notifications for the Jodel Chat?
Open the Chat view and open the notification settings in the upper left corner using the bell symbol.
There you can activate or deactivate the notifications individually using the silder and decide wether you want to be notified about Chat requests, about the acceptance of a Chat request you have sent or about a new Chat message in the Chat.
What happens if another Jodeler rejects my Chat request?
If the Jodeler does not answer or rejects the request, the requesting party will not receive any notification. No further request is possible for this User under the same Jodel.
How can I delete a Chat?
To delete a Chat, open the Chat with this User. At the top right you can see a button with three dots. Click here and select "delete Chat".
Can I undo deleting a Chat?
Deleting a Chat cannot be undone.
How can I report and block a User?
To block a user, open the Chat with that User. At the top right you can see a button with three dots.
Click here and select "Report and block User". If it's a gross violation of the guidelines, take a Screenshot of the Chat beforehand and send it to the Support using the contact form with an explanation.
After blocking, it is possible that you receive another Chat request from that User under another Jodel.
Can I unblock a User?
Blocking a User cannot be reversed.
