Sandes App:

  • It is a Government Instant Messaging System (GIMS) that can be used for official or casual use by any Government employee or public user having a valid Mobile No./Email ID.
  • It offers features such as group making, broadcast message, message forwarding and emojis.
  • Although there is no option to transfer the chat history between two platforms, the chats on GIMS can be backed up to a users’ email.
  • The user will have to re-register as a new user in case they wish to change their registered Email Id or phone number on the App.
  • It allows a user to mark a message as confidential, which will allow the recipient to be made aware the message should not be shared with others.
