    You can start showing a typing indicator using this API. Seeing whether other users are typing can help a more interactive conversation environment by showing real-time engagement of other users.

    If you're looking for an easy way to show typing indicators on your app, check out Sendbird UIKit for a ready-to-use UI feature that can be customized to fit your needs.
