Hello Team!
How to disable notifications about start/stop/ended and etc. in Talk conversations?
These notifications clutter up your chat history.


Can someone explain this behavior?

every talk conversation has this setting on the 3-dots menu, did you try this?


AFAIK majority of the users want to see such action trail…

Hello @wwe
Yes, I’ve tried all the options under ‘Notifications’ but I’m not getting the desired result.
Statuses about calls always fill the chat history.

It’s not possible to disable these messages. In talk 18 some of them are collapsed by default giving a better overview.

Thanks for the clarification!

Hello @SysKeeper
I upgarded the Nextcloud server to 28 version and the Talk app to 18.0.3 version but did not find the mentioned functionality “In talk 18 some of them are collapsed by default giving a better overview.”

Can you confirm what it should be?
