HipChat is 2 Fast 2 Furious

By Garret Heaton | 3 years ago | 3 Comments

Happy 2nd birthday, HipChat! We launched two years ago today and have been working nonstop to help your team get things done, stay in touch, and have fun. Here’s what we’ve been up to since last year:

We’ve also made major improvements to the reliability and speed of our service and have over 10 times more people chatting every day than we did a year ago. Almost every week in the past year was our biggest ever (apparently everyone goes on vacation during the last week of August). Here’s to another exciting year! We’re grateful for your support and are excited to share the wonderful things we have on our roadmap with you.

HipChat is group chat and IM built for teams. Learn more

    Excellent! I have to ask, though.. when can we expect to see group voice chat? That is the one and only feature holding me back from switching my team from Skype to HipChat. Everything else about your product is right up our alley. :-)

    No ETA on that yet – it’s not a trivial thing to add. :)
