HipChat is an instant chat service, one more, but this one is dedicated to professionals. Conceived rather for the companies or the independents who gather around a project, this service is proposed on all the platforms (including on the web) and it is free up to five interlocutors. Its designers offer a new version largely revised on Mac, as on ios.
On Mac, the software changes to version 2.0: the interface has been largely revised with a sidebar on the left to list the conversations in progress. HipChat completely abandons AIR, Adobe's technology that makes it easy to create cross-platform software: it is now an entirely native interface, more fluid and more enjoyable.
Side ios, HipChat [2.0 - US - Free - iPhone / iPad - HipChat, Inc.] also has a major update, with a similar design. We find the sidebar on the left for conversations, but we also have a space on the right for the list of contacts, much like in the Facebook application. On all platforms, you can share files easily and the upload is advertised as faster.
HipChat is totally free if you limit yourself to five people. Beyond that, it will be necessary to subscribe to the billed subscription $ 2 per month and per user. Clearly, a company of six employees will have to pay $ 12 each month to use this service.
Forget email exchanges and endless round trips, HipChat allow you to create conversation forums for projects, teams, or simply to interact with colleagues. When you finish a conversation, you will be able to archive it. Thanks to the integrated search engine, you can find everything. The search is done by keyword on text, files, and links. Everything is archived. Everything is searchable.
Ergonomics and user experience are particularly well-suited for simple implementation and use. So you can attach files and documents to your conversations by simply dragging and dropping. HipChat will even show a preview of the file to all exchange participants. Convenient. Also practice the opportunity offered to share your screen simply with others or video conference.
Conversations are in a group or private message. The HipChat interface uses the syntax of traditional social networks like Facebook or Twitter. You can go to a specific person with an at sign. You can hold cross-subject conversations via hash tags. Not to mention the emojis for fantasy in the discussions.
