Happy Birthday, HipChat! It has now been 3 years since our launch, and in the past year we’ve really grown up. Here are the highlights:
- We joined Atlassian!
- The size of our team doubled. We’ve had four great people join us and are looking for more.
- We improved @mention names, then decided to let users pick their own.
- Our users added over 10,000 custom emoticons to increase their… play-ductivity.
- Our integrations list has grown to epic proportions.
- Made dozens of improvements and fixes to our desktop app.
- Our iOS app got a big overhaul with a focus on speed.
- The Android app got a few updates as well, and has some massive improvements on the way.
- Our API got some love and many groups have added bots to cater to their every whim.
- Notification emails got a huge facelift.
- We started getting ready for the biggest new product in HipChat’s life.
