HipChat is a messenger for top-ranking specialists
More and more issues these days are solved by virtue of teamwork. To attain a successful project’s course, pros of various skills need to communicate and interact effectively. Guided by this, a team of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute graduates created HipChat in 2010. And in 2012 the promising company was bought by Atlassian.
The main HipChat’s direction is business communication. The messenger allows its users to message, make video calls and share files (documents, archives, images, etc.). You can also make @mentions, search through the chat history and share your screen with other team members.
Essential high quality functionality in HipChat
Users can chat both one-to-one and in chat rooms. The function of adding people to a certain chat is a privilege of a room owner.
Messages in HipChat are sent in a simple manner. The messenger does not use the end-to-end encryption technology or other trends. It focuses on the speed of sending and receiving messages. There are no thousands of stickers or hundreds of emoticons in HipChat. Only those you need for work. Minimum possibilities to get distracted and lose your train of thought.
Thanks to the cloud-based file storage, users can always find necessary information in the chat history. Another advantage of this messaging app is the absence of ads.
HipChat is available for downloading to computers running Windows, Mac OS, Linux, iOS and Android and it easily integrates with over 50 systems, including Confluence, Bitbucket, Jira and Jira ServiceDesk, UserVoice, MailChimp and Twitter.
