Core

V1.5 was released last week ;)

Brighten up your private and group chats with images, turn up the volume with audio messages, and show some love with emoji reactions. All three of these features have been highly requested to make Status a viable replacement for many of the centralized messengers in use today. And a special Kudos to Status Ambassador Enrico who implemented audio messages on his own - open source for the win.
