Send private messages with sendbird-uikit


We need to implement a chat for a live event in React, and give the possibility to our users to send private messages to people in the channel.

For example, I would like to be able to right click on someone’s name in the channel and click “send a private message” or something similar.

Is it achievable with the UIKit or do I have to create a fully customised Chat interface?

Creating a channel with the person you want to message is not really an option as it’s not very straightforward, maybe if I can implement a contextual menu when you right click on someone’s name in which you can message this person (and it will internally create a channel with only both of you).
If I understand well, anyone can join / create channels so does it mean people could possibly join your “private channel”?
