Future Scope

Opportunities for improvement as the product thinking.


1
After all the process of milestones, the problem was that the term between each video connecting was quite long and the loading interface and even interaction was static and boring so the users were easy to leave the app during their waiting time.
2
I found that the users had trouble in having a good experience while using our service because there were various types of users including people who had good or bad verbal communication skills and abusive uesrs. And it was obvious that not all the chat experiences could give users the best experience. 
3
So I came up with the ideas. Making loading screen more interesting was one of my solution to solve those problems by providing the featured users information, a dinamic animation of the loading page and a review system into a light layer pop-up to report user’s feeling right after disconnecting.
