Lumiya runs entirely on the phone without requiring you to use special in-world objects or external services.
After a long and protracted development, Lumiya 3.0 is available on Google Play.
It features a new, fresh user interface, completely redesigned and practically rewritten from scratch, with material themes, gestures, sane navigation and better look all around. It even includes pink color theme for those inclined.
Most importantly, Lumiya now keeps the entire chat history on the phone. No more lost messages and trying to remember whether you had "Save chat logs" option enabled. Entire history can be exported to Google Drive, Dropbox or saved anywhere else in a standard Android way.
Lumiya now includes fairly complete group management, with support for group invites, editing group roles and assigning permissions.
In 3D mode, pinch and drag gestures are now used to move the camera around, while buttons are reserved to walking. And, finally, in-world popup menus are now looking and acting like popup menus, and even better, because they can be swiped away to dismiss them.
The last but not the least, the update includes a lot of bug fixes - in particular, Lumiya should not crash anymore at Nexus 5 and similar devices - and some performance improvements all around. Also, more data gets cached than before, to reduce bandwidth usage and handle poor network conditions better.
To sum it up, there is a short list of changes, which is necessarily incomplete because Lumiya 3.0 is practically a new app and almost everything has been reworked from the ground up:
- New user interface with material design;
- New Pink color theme;
- Avatar pictures in chat and contacts;
- Group management;
- Persistent chat history;
- Improved nagivation in 3D mode, with pinch and drag gestures;
- Improved interaction with in-world objects;
- Option to keep Wi-Fi awake while connected;
- Fixed crashes in 3D mode on certain devices.
