Overall Satisfaction with HipChat
We use Hipchat to quickly communicate with the our immediate teams, and to assist us in collaboration with other departments. Things we wouldn't put in e-mail we instead put into Hipchat.
- Easy to form rooms on the fly.
- Works on mobile and desktop.
- It is constantly crashing or down.
- The notifications are confusing, you notice it pop up and when you return to the app itself the chat is not surfaced, you have to dig for it.
Google Hangout, MNM messenger - I like HipChat better than both, Hangouts and MSN felt geared more towards personal use since you can connect to people outside your company if you want.
