Creating a Trial App

  1. Log in to the Tencent Cloud IM Console.
  2. Click Add a new app to bring up the Create an app dialog box.
  3. Input a name for your app and click OK.
    After the app is created, use the console homepage to view the status, application version, SDKAppID, creation time, and expiration time of the app.

    By default, a new app is a trial app and enabled.
