Chat View auto detect Links/Url in a message

I am creating a Chat App

  • I want that if a user types/paste any link/Ural (eg:https://creator.kodular.io/) in the chat message. The
    Chat Message (that contains the Ural/Links) automatically change colour to blue

  • And also When the Ural/Link is clicked it open in Chrome Custom Tab/Web Viewer just like
    WhatsApp or Telegram.

Is that possible and if then how?

Two Questions

  1. How to change text colour to blue if it contains Links/Ural
  2. How to make links Clickable (ie: When a link is clicked it open in Web Viewer or Chrome Custom Tab)

Any other suggestion to make a better Chat App is Highly Appreciated

Thanks for answering

Use regular expression extension to detect if a sentence contains URLs. Seach Regex in taifun extension directory
