HipChat Video

Here’s what we’ve got waiting for you in our latest release:

  • Start and receive 1-to-1 video or audio calls
  • Share your screen with co-workers
  • A sweet new logo

Please note: If you’re currently using HipChat under our Free for 5 plan, you’ll be able to try video and screen sharing free for 30 days. After that, you’ll need to upgrade to a paid account to keep using the new features.

If you’re already on a paid account, HipChat video and screen sharing will be available at no extra cost.

Voice or video – it’s your call

Sometimes video is worth a thousand words. To start a video chat, open up a 1-to-1 chat with a co-worker and click the video icon. Want to start an audio call instead? Just click the phone icon. Easy.

Sync up with screen sharing

Get on the same page (literally) by sharing your screen so you can work together on any project. Just click the screen share button in any video chat and build genuine consensus to get your work done quicker.
