You are now able to receive instant replies from members via private message, no need to wait not knowing when they will reply and no need to refresh your page.

The new feature is currently in Beta mode as I'm still working out a way to instantly send too the copy pasted image or docs directly to reply textarea box.


In case you don't know , Private Message can also be turned into a Group Message and both are now converted into Realtime Chat! For Group Message/Chat, just keep adding them from right side column called the "Add People to this Conversation" box

Im attaching the guide tomorrow :)

Please feel give it a try, and also don't forget to clear your browser cache.

Next In line is the push notification message on Mobile and Web without the need of installing a mobile app! (well except for iOS) . This way you wont miss any truly miss anymore messages! How? I'll let you know soon once it's completed.

If you have any issues or facing any issues in the forum, you may always reach me too at [email protected]

Thanks Everyone!

PS. Apology for breaking the comment textbox earlier as it was affected during the launch of the RealTime Chat feature. It is now restored.

    Attaching image is now working for both web and mobile Group / Private Chat.

    Kindly use this icon to attach an image

    Next to fix is the document or file attachment. (document attachment is still in progress)

    I will work on the notification after the attachments are settled.

    Some people informed me they cant attach image. ive increased the pic size to 10MB which is enough to cater for pic taken form you phone. please give it another try.

    Realtime Chat attachments (pdf, doc, word, etc) is now available and working!

    Just note that attachments and images are limited to 10MB for now. It should be enough to send large size photos taken from your phone and as well documents .

    I will be working on "Mobile and Web Push notification" next. How does it work?

    No more extra app needed (except for iOS). With just a google chrome, you will be able to receive a normal notification from your phone and clicking it will automatically open the Chat Group discussion in Chrome and you can conversate with your group in real time just like any other chat platform (web or mobile).

    We understand your need for a quick response therefore we are really working hard to cope up with the fast emerging trend. We also seek your understanding to please refrain from inviting people out of, as this has a very drastic impact to the site.

    We have started pinoyau on 2009 established the site at 2010. We have a very good historic trend on Australia Migration and how things evolved from the past to now, wanted to keep this platform alive and continue to help other future applicants to come.

    We would also like to hear your advice, perhaps any other service you wish to have like in our platform.

    We are thinking of having a section of Trusted Pinoy Accommodation offering to prevent new migrants from being scammed, as they are still outside of Australia and planning to make their big Move. Still in planning stage but hopefully we can come up and implement it.

    Thanks Pinoy AU pips! :)

    Good news! Web / Android Mobile Chrome Push Notification is now available in Beta mode!

    Available sa Real time chat for now, so if anyone replies to your message. You will get then push notification.

    I will apply later sa mga replies from discussion. Leave a message here kung may problem kayo na na-encounter

    To enable the Push Notification here are the steps:
    1) Go to Inbox and when the prompt launches, Click Allow button

    2) Please help to allow/accept the push notification consent.
    Don't worry you can turn this off anytime from your Site Settings

    3) When you are not browsing the forum, you will receive a push notification when someone, replies to you just like a normal messenger, but take note, without the need to install an app. (except for iOS, they have no support for Safari mobile push notification) clicking the notification will redirect you to the chat page and you can continue to reply to your group or friends!
