## Worksession
The worksession itself was based around rethinking and designing the way Conversations displays information about chat groups. Arguably one of the most important features of any chat system, the groupchat view had been underdeveloped in Conversations. During the worksession we discussed the various types of groupchats that exist in the XMPP ecosystem, ranging from public topical rooms to private chats of groups of friends. By comparing what choices other chat applications make and getting a sense of what is (im)possible in the XMPP ecosystem (see [Cristina Cochiors writeup for more details](#liiinknaarartikel)) participants got a good idea of where to go. Then we spent the afternoon doing a few different wireframes. These different designs all made different choices in accessibility, UX, customization.
