Hi, I am developing an android app where I require to send and receive files and texts through backendless. I am facing problems where I can only publish and subscribe text messages, but not files. I would like to know how to achieve that. Thank you!

In order to transmit a file through the messaging service, I would recommend the following approach:
- Upload the file to the File Service using the API.
Once the file is uploaded, you receive the file URL
Send the file URL in a message
The code that receives the message downloads the file from the URL.
