Auto-update the feed in a channel automatically
Right now, you have to refresh or switch channels to get new messages in your feed. It would be nice if this would happen automatically.. (like in Slack.)
The system is designed to updated dynamically via web sockets.
In the Alpha release of GitLab Mattermost in GitLab 7.14 omnibus there was a mis-configuration in the installer where for some users the updating wasn’t dynamic but it was fixed in GitLab 7.14.1 omnibus and should work in future versions.

This is really needed especially for the currently active channel or conversation.
