Can no longer message without creating a contact?

We use Bria for text messaging via xmpp and we have been able to just enter a number for example 2055551234 to send a message. Now in Bria 5 we can no longer send a message to a xmpp recipient without first creating a contact. How do we send a message without creating a contact?

Hello Bill,

1. May I please know if you're using the mobile or desktop version of Bria?

2. When you say text messaging, do you mean simple SMS or Instant message?

Cheers,

Desktop version using Instant Message, XMPP to a SMS gateway.

Hello Bill,

Unfortunately, you need to create a contact first in order to send the IM messages to anyone. There is no workaround for it. I'm sorry for the inconvenience. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Cheers,
