How to conveniently transfer application software-specific data of a third party in addition to natural language communication between users in clients of various message exchange applications including instant messaging in the mobile communication era. Increasingly becoming a challenge.
In some existing implementations, in order to send specific account exchange information (e.g., financial transactions related to an account) related to a user account in a third-party software application to other participants in a chat session through instant messaging software, the third-party software application is first installed on a device of an initiator, and the initiator is required to customize specific transaction information in the third-party software application, and transaction data, which is usually a structured character string, is obtained from the third-party software application and then transferred to the session of the instant messaging software through a copy/paste function in an operating system, so as to be sent to other participants in the session. And the other participants need to extract the structured character strings through the paste/copy function of the device system, open the corresponding third-party software application on the system (if the third-party software application is not installed, the third-party software application needs to be downloaded and installed first), and finally log in the own account in the third-party software application to finish the analysis of the structured character strings and finish the account transaction to be performed.
On the other hand, the application of the input method is more and more widespread for mobile devices. Even for various alphabetic languages, mobile devices without physical keyboards need to rely on an input method system to provide convenient and fast input functions for various characters and characters.

Detailed Description
Exemplary embodiments of the present invention are described below with reference to the accompanying drawings, in which various details of embodiments of the invention are included to assist understanding, and which are to be considered as merely exemplary. Accordingly, those of ordinary skill in the art will recognize that various changes and modifications of the embodiments described herein can be made without departing from the scope and spirit of the invention. Also, descriptions of well-known functions and constructions are omitted in the following description for clarity and conciseness.
In general, the system of the present disclosure may include at least two user devices and a third party application server. The two pieces of user equipment are respectively installed with the same kind of message exchange applications capable of communicating with each other, such message exchange applications typically include WeChat (WeChat), QQ App, Facebook Messenger, whatsApp, Telegram, line, Kakao Talk, Viber, Skype, Snapchat, LinkedIn, and so on, and alternatively, such message exchange applications may also be email applications or short message applications, such as short message applications installed on smart phones. In some cases, such message exchange applications may also be various browser-based web applications with message exchange functionality. In addition, an Input Method Editor (IME, hereinafter, abbreviated as an Input Method) is installed in at least one of the two user apparatuses. Conventional input methods can assist a user in entering a rich set of characters on an input interface of any application running on the operating system of the user device, which is often not directly available from the physical keyboard associated with the computing device. Moreover, the rich character input provided by the input method is particularly important for some mobile devices since they are not provided with a physical keyboard at all.
In the input method disclosed by the present disclosure, which is installed on one computing device in the system, a functional interface for interfacing with a third-party application is integrated, and the functional interface enables a user to directly communicate with a server of the third-party application through the functional interface in the input method, wherein the communication includes verifying whether the user belongs to a registered user or whether the user is in a login state, and the like. In addition, the functional interface also enables a user to send data processing requests to a server of the third-party application, including submitting specific data associated with the user's account for processing by the server platform of the third-party application, and returning processed string data having a specific format, submitted by the user through the input method editor to the message exchange session in which the user is currently participating. In this way, the user can directly transmit the structured string recognizable by the client and/or the server of the third-party application to at least another party in the message exchange session in which the user participates without starting or calling the client of the third-party application in the operating system on the computing device, so that the another party can perform subsequent account data exchange operation with the server of the third-party application based on the structured string received in the corresponding message exchange session.
In another embodiment, after the user activates the representation of the third-party application included in the input method on the computing device, the interface function integrated in the input method corresponding to the representation of the third-party application does not need to directly communicate with the background server of the third-party application, and the interface function can directly authenticate the current account login situation of the user in the third-party application based on the locally stored history of previous access of the interface function by the user. After authentication has passed, the interface function may further perform a preliminary review of the account exchange data provided by the user, which may include, for example, comparing a particular value contained in the account exchange data submitted by the user with threshold data. After the audit is passed, the interface function may further format the account exchange data to obtain a processed structured string and transmit the structured string to at least one other participant in the message exchange session in which it is participating.
FIG. 1 is an exemplary system architecture diagram in which some embodiments described in this specification may be implemented. As shown, the exemplary system includes at least a first computing device 110, a second computing device 120, and a third party application server 160. Alternatively, the system may further include a message exchange server 130 and an input method server 140. The various components in the system may communicate with each other over a network 150.
In the system of fig. 1, the first computing device 110 has installed thereon an operating system 111, and on the operating system 111 is installed a message exchange client 114 and an input method 116 into which is integrated a third party application interface module 118 that can interface with a client or server of a third party application. The third party application interface module 118 may be a set of SDKs embedded in the input method editor that make calls to specific functions of the third party application. Additionally, a third party application client 112 may already be installed on the first computing device 110. In some embodiments, the first computing device 110 may also have no client of the third-party application installed on it at the beginning of performing the steps described in the present disclosure, and the user may choose to install the third-party application client 112 during use. In addition, in the second computing device 120, the operating system 121 also runs a corresponding message exchange client 124, and users of the first computing device 110 and the second computing device 120 can perform instant messaging chat with each other through corresponding message exchange clients, such as WeChat or Line. Of course, these message exchanges are not limited to instant messaging. Email, short message applications can also implement the related functions in this disclosure. Third party application clients 122 may also have been installed on the second computing device 120 as well. In many embodiments, the second computing device 120 has no clients of the third-party application installed on it at the beginning of performing the steps described in this disclosure, and the user of the second computing device chooses to install the third-party application client 122 during use according to the prompt. In addition, the input method 126 may already be installed on the second computing device 120, or not. And the input method 126 may include a third party application interface module 128 or not. In summary, the user of each computing device can select a client for installing and running the relevant third-party application and/or an input method containing the third-party application according to the prompt of the system in the process of executing each step of the disclosure.
Fig. 2 is an exemplary flow diagram of a method of communicating third party application information in a message exchange application via an input method, according to some embodiments of the present description. The process may be implemented primarily in the first computing device 110 in fig. 1, for example. At block 202, a user invokes an input method, which may be part of a financial processing function in a personal banking application, from an operating system of a user device by parking focus in a text entry field in a message exchange client while participating in a message exchange session with other users. At block 204, an interface module with a third party application is activated in the input method interface based on user input, such as a user click. The user may also invoke a certain third party application integrated in the input method by entering a specific character combination in the input method, e.g. entering a character combination "%:", "% @", etc. In addition, the interface function of the third-party application of the input method can be called by setting a specific gesture input, such as a drawing line of a specific track or shape, on the input method function.
After the user activates the interface module with the third party application in the input method, the interface module first checks whether the user's account is authenticated in the server of the third party application (block 206). The checking act may first determine whether a user account associated with the user is already logged into the third party application. If so, determining that the user's account has been authenticated by the server may be followed by other business processes related to the third-party application. If the user is not already logged in, a prompt page is provided asking the user to first provide account information to log in to the third-party application to use the functionality of the third-party application integrated in the input method (block 208). If the user has not registered any user accounts with the third party application, the user is first required to register an account with the third party application, including providing new account information to a server of the third party application. The operation of registering a new account with the server can be completed by the interface function of the third-party application integrated in the input method, or the user can be guided to open the client of the third-party application in the operating system of the device and separately complete the registered program in the client. If the client is not installed, the user may also be first guided to download the client from the network address where the third party application client is stored, and then launch the client and register a new account thereon. In some embodiments, the login information recorded by the user in the input method application on the device may be used to register the new account with the server of the third party application when registering the new account. For example, the user name and password used by the user in the input method application may be directly used as the user name and password when the user newly registers for an account at the third-party application. In some implementations, the user's account login information at the input method may be associated with the account login information at the third-party application such that the user, when single-sign-on into his user account in the input method, may associatively simultaneously log-in into his associated user account at the third-party application. In this way, when the user subsequently opens the functional interface of the third-party application in the input method, the user can be directly verified as being authenticated at the server of the third-party application, so that the user can directly perform business operation associated with the account information in the interface module of the third-party application of the input method.
In some embodiments, if it is detected that a client of the third party application is not already installed on the user device, a prompt page may first be displayed to the user at block 204 or block 206 to guide the user to download the client from the specified network address and install onto the user device (block 205). However, as mentioned above, since some front-end function modules of the third-party application are integrated into the input method, the user can actually perform some operations on his account in the third-party application directly in the input method interface, and therefore, the above steps of downloading and installing the client are not necessary.
In some embodiments, if the interface module of the third-party application or a subsequent server thereof initially determines that there has been no user account login information associated with the computing device when the user activates the interface function of the third-party application in the input method, then an account information associated with the user (such as the user's account information in the input method) is submitted to the server of the third-party application to determine whether the account has been previously registered at the server of the third-party application based on the account information. If the account is a registered account but the account is currently in an unregistered state, the state of the user account may be set to logged in and the business operations under the user account from the user device may be allowed. If the user account has not been registered, the user may be presented with a page confirming that the user account is registered in the server of the third party application to in effect perform the creation and association of the user account in two different applications.
Upon confirming that the user has logged into the third party application, specific account exchange data relating to the user's account may then be received from the user in an interface module of the third party application in an import method. Such account exchange data may be, for example, data specifying that a particular amount is subtracted from a balance in a financial account opened by the user at the third party application, or an increase or decrease in any virtual incentives associated with the user account, or the like. Any substantive or virtual asset or other incentive measure that can freely flow between different user accounts at the third party application based on the user's desire may be the subject of such account exchange data. Of course, such account exchange data may also more broadly include other various data exchanges between different user accounts in the same application.
A structured string corresponding to the account exchange data is then generated by an interface module of the third party application in the input method based on the account exchange data received from the user and sent to a message exchange client used by another user at another device via a message exchange session (block 212). Such a structured string may be generated by the interface module of the third party application itself, which the input method comprises. Alternatively, upon receiving account exchange data from the user, the interface module of the third-party application in the input method may send the account exchange data to a server of the third-party application for data transaction processing associated with the user account of the user, the processing including generating a structured string based on the account exchange data and sending the structured string back to the user device, for receipt by the interface module of the third-party application in the input method, and further for submission by the user to an input field in the message exchange application client for sending by the user to the other party participating in the session. Alternatively, the generated structured string may also be encoded with information of the client that initiated or installed the third party application. The structured string may be configured in advance when sent to another party in the message exchange session so that another user as a recipient can select the structured string for subsequent operations.
Fig. 3 is an exemplary flow diagram of a method of processing upon receipt of third party application information in a message exchange application, according to some embodiments of the present description. When a structured string applicable to a third-party application is received from another participant in the message exchange session (block 302), the user as the other participant may select the structured string by clicking on it in the message exchange session, or the like (block 304). Selection of the structured string by the user may trigger an operation associated with the structured string, including sending all or part of the structured string to a network address of a server embedded in the structured string that is indicative of a third party application (block 314), e.g., opening a url address contained in the structured string that points to the server of the third party application via http or any other suitable protocol in a browser for data exchange with the server of the third party application. Alternatively, if the same input method has been installed and enabled on the user device as the other participant as on the device at the sender of the structured string, the user as the recipient may also directly copy the structured string and pass the copied structured string to the corresponding third party application interface module in the input method by activating the input method, so that the structured string may be passed to the server of the third party application via the third party application interface module and further processed.
In some implementations, before sending the structured string to a server for processing, it is first determined whether a client of the third-party application is already installed on the user device based on an identifier included in the structured string that identifies the third-party application (block 306). If such a client is not already installed on the user device, a prompt is provided to guide the user to download and install the client of the third party application from the specified network address on the device. Wherein the specified network address may be embedded separately in the structured string received by the message exchange session or may be from the same network address as the server of the third party application. After the user downloads and installs the client, the client of the third party application may be prompted to open and register a new user therein (block 308). The user may also choose to log directly into the account if the user has already registered the user account at the server of the third party application through other means.
If the user device has such a client installed, a further determination is made as to whether the third party application client on the device is in a logged on state (block 310). If the client is not logged in, the user is prompted to log in (block 312). If the client is already in the logged-on state, the structured string received in the message exchange session is directly sent to the server of the third party application for data exchange processing associated with the logged-on account (block 314). The server can analyze the structured character string, extract account information, service transaction information and the like of an original sender from the structured character string, and add related service transaction information into a related account of a receiver, and finally complete one-time account transaction service processing related to two users at a server applied by a third party.
Fig. 4A-4F are schematic screen shots of transmitting and receiving red packet information via an input method, according to some embodiments of the present description. As shown in fig. 4A, an input method is called in an input interface bar of the instant messaging session, and the called input method includes a shortcut button of a red packet function, and a user can conveniently click the red packet function on an interface of the input method, so as to call a function interface related to red packet issue. Because the interface functions related to the red envelope are integrated in the input method interface, a user does not need to firstly search and open a separate third-party application client supporting the red envelope function on a desktop under the system environment, thereby avoiding complex switching and copying operations. Through the red envelope shortcut entry arranged on the input method interface, the user can conveniently send the red envelope to friends when chatting with the friends. As shown in fig. 4E and 4F, such a red envelope is sent to the other party through the chat window in the form of a formatted string, where fig. 4E shows that the structured string completed has been submitted to the text edit bar of the instant messaging application by the input method, and fig. 4F shows that the structured string has been submitted to the currently ongoing messaging conversation, so that other participants of the conversation can instantly see the message and potentially take responsive action, such as clicking on the structured string, to extract the information contained therein, including a link in the structured string to the server processing interface of the third party application.
When the user clicks the red packet function on the input method interface, if the user of the input method does not log in the user account of the third-party application related to the red packet application, the red packet function firstly prompts the user to log in. Such login can be performed quickly by means of the mobile phone number and the verification code of the user, as shown in fig. 4B. After the user successfully logs in, the user is further prompted to perform the red package operation, as shown in fig. 4C. If the mobile phone number of the user is not the current registered user in the third-party application, the red packet function can prompt the user to register to the server of the third-party application at first, for example, prompt the user to download the client of the third-party application and register through the client.
FIG. 4D shows the generation of a structured string. After the user inputs a specific digital packet and a red packet is well, the red packet function in the input method further converts the red packet related information input by the user into a string of structured character strings, and the character strings at least comprise the amount of the red packet, the related address of the server interface of the third-party application for processing the red packet data, and other characters. As described above, the generation of such a structured character string may be completed by the red packet function module itself included in the input method on the user equipment, or the red packet function module may send information such as the amount of money of the red packet, the user ID for creating the red packet, and the like to the server of the third party application, and the server of the third party application returns the created structured character string corresponding to the submitted red packet information and submits the created structured character string to the chat session currently in progress of the user through the input method. In the case where the red packet function module included in the input method itself generates the structured character string, the red packet data information is not actually processed by the server of the third-party application, that is, the corresponding financial account information of the user is not subtracted, and this step is postponed until the user who receives the red packet clicks the red packet and then processes the same. In this case, although there is a risk of consistency of the financial accounts of the users to some extent, the process of the users packing the red packages is also made more convenient because there is no need to communicate with the server.
On the other hand, when another user participating in the chat session receives the red envelope, the received red envelope connection may be clicked. If the user's device does not already have a third party application installed on it that is capable of receiving the red envelope, the user may be prompted to install a client for such third party application. If the client is installed on the equipment of the user, the service function of the third-party application can be automatically called when the user clicks the received structured character string, so that the client of the third-party application can automatically receive the red packet and send the received red packet data to the server of the third-party application, and the server automatically transfers the red packet amount to the corresponding financial account of the user. If the user has not logged into the third-party application when clicking the red envelope link, the user may first be prompted to log in.
In summary, the input method system provided according to various embodiments of the present invention facilitates the release of third-party applications by compactly embedding certain major front-end functionality of such third-party applications in an input method interface, and alternatively, leveraging some incentive mechanisms that such third-party applications can provide, such that users of input methods are more easily exposed to particular functionality of such third-party applications and are willing to install clients of such third-party applications.
