All types are in a separate package, flutter_chat_types. There are 3 supported message types at the moment - File, Image and Text. All of them have corresponding "partial" message types, that include only the message's content. "Partial" messages are useful to create the content and then pass it to some kind of a backend service, which will assign fields like id or author etc, returning a "full" message which can be passed to the messages parameter of the Chat widget. In addition to that, there are Custom and Unsupported types. Custom can be used to build anything you want, and Unsupported is just a placeholder to have backwards compatibility. See the API reference for more info.
