This course picks up where the introductory course Build an Android Chat App from Scratch using XMPP and Smack left off and we go through the entire process of how you send and receive any kind of file in your Smack based Android XMPP Chat App.The technique introduced in this course works well even when your contact is offline and they can retrieve the file as soon as they are online. It also works really well when you are using multiple devices on the same account and in group chats. At the end of the course you will not only have a working Chat App that can send and receive files but you will UNDERSTAND how it is put together, giving you a solid foundation to apply the changes relevant to your specific needs.
