New sign-in screen, blast messaging, locking support, read receipts (pending forthcoming server update!), emoji sounds, large emoji support, new policies supported for business customers, many more settings and features, fixed crashes and other bug fixes.
Great alternative to Messages
Since Messages discontinued jabber/gtalk/hangouts support which I need for work, I switched over to Trillian and have not had any problems. I also like the dark/light theme option.
I’ve checked Activity Monitor and rebooted and closed every other app I have running - something has gone wrong with Trillian and it either hangs or lags (1-2 minutes) with typing and responses. We have used Trillian (Mac, Windows & iOS) for YEARS and this is by far the worst I’ve seen the app work. Correction - it doestn’t really work.
