Is it possible to receive all the messages (Facebook / Google chat) since last connection? A synchronisation since the last connection. Moreover, when chatting directly on the site, the messages "we jolla users" write are not shown.

I think it is exactly what happens, you go online and receive images that were posted while you were offline. Then the problem with FB at least is that server often doesn't send messages if you saw them already elsewhere e.g. on FB web page.

I think it happens with all the apps maybe except for FB Messenger. It would have been great if Jolla messaging app could do something about it, but not sure if it's possible.

This feature would be nice especially for FB & Google talk.

Yeah, thats really needed, especially if you switch often between chatting on jolla and some pc.

I think this is covered for XMPP in an experimental XEP-0280: Message Carbons. Syncing the conversations like Google does in their mobile/web clients increases the usability of chat greatly. But it's their in-house solution and they are not likely to implement this XEP on GTalk servers when it reaches the draft status since they are ditching XMPP in favor of Hangouts. Same goes for Facebook which provides only a limited XMPP API to their own chat service.

What I would like to see is Jolla promoting XMPP as much as possible (the only chance of having a modern chat experience in Jolla). This includes pushing (sponsoring?) Telepathy guys to implement some of the XEPs that are useful in mobile chat clients such as XEP-0198 or XEP-0184. Another angle could a partnership with a XMPP provider who implements all those XEPs.
