As I’ve mentioned in the past, a focus of Monal development going forward is going to be improving the UI/UX. I have been thoroughly modernizing many components of the app that have been largely untouched for years. Notifications and image handling is one of them. This is how I added the aesgcm: encrypted link support as well as grouped notifications. Building on that, I have updated notifications to show a preview of the image (which is transparently decrypted in the background) as well as showing the senders name instead of the JID.

  1. Hi Anu,

    very good to see this progress!

    I would to suggest to also enable opt-out of screen preview of the message content. This will allow people to keep up their privacy.

    Cheers

  2. Yes, this is under display settings. I will make the toggle more obvious. In addition modern iOS devices will hide the preview until your face is detected.
