Send images using Chat SDK

Occasional Visitor

Is it possible to send images as messages using the Chat SDK of azure communication services? As far as I read it only supports messages as strings, and they have a limit of 28,5K characters approximately, so I tried to send images as Base64 but the result strings have more than the supported maximum characters, so I get the next error:

Failed at getting messages, Error:  RestError: {
  "CommunicationError": {
    "Code": "BadRequest",
    "Message": "Message size exceeded.",
    "Details": []

Any help would be really appreciated

Hi @surionah!


Thanks for your interest in Azure Communication Services! As of now, it's not possible to send images directly in chat but you can send a URL that points to your image. Let us know if you are running into any other issues!
