The release of ESChat Android version 22.0 (1422) and iOS version 12.1 (979) includes a new type of group membership, called Listen Only.  In order to create a Listen Only enabled group, you must have access to the ESChat Management Portal. Please note that group members running an Android client below the (1422) release will function with the Listen Only feature, but will not display the proper Presence Icons either in active calls or the Groups tab.
