A month ago, we announced that our Video and Screen Sharing features were available for beta testing on our HipChat for Mac, Android, iOS, and Web apps. As of today, HipChatters on Windows and Linux can also hold 1-to-1 video chats and screen shares.
Go ahead and start a call with your developer in Europe or your APAC manager in Singapore. Whether your team is in the office or across the globe, they’ll feel right next to you with HipChat 1-to-1 Video and Screen Share. HipChat also supports audio calls. To start one, simply press the phone icon in a 1-to-1 chat or turn off the video feed in a video chat.
HipChat 1-to-1 Video and Screen Sharing will be available to use for free as long as the beta period is in effect. After the beta period is over, these features will only be available on paid accounts.
If you are using Windows, HipChat will prompt you to update to this latest version. On Linux, simply run a system update to try these features today. If you run into any bugs or have any feedback, let us know!
