New/Join MUC

Tapping the plus button on the top right will bring up the new/join muc panel. This interface will allow you to either join an existing or create a new MUC on your chosen server.

  • Account: This is the account that will handle data for the MUC chatroom. This is available for users who have multiple accounts logged in.
  • Server: The server the chatroom is located on, in many cases the muc server will be muc.servername.com, but may be different.
  • Room: The name of the chatroom you wish to create or join.
  • Nickname: Your name for use inside the MUC. This will become yournickname@muc.server.com. MUC conversations do not leak your XMPP account, so a nickname is required.
  • Password: The password for the MUC room. If you are creating a new chatroom, this will serve as the chat room password.

Once you are finished, tap Join and you will join, or the room will be opened for you.

When in a chatroom, you may view the occupants by tapping Occupants, and will be given a list and statuses of the room participants.
