Overall Satisfaction with HipChat (discontinued)

HipChat is used as channel to communicate within our team, and also used to collaborate with other teams and individuals. It is used by our organization, as it was cheaper compared to other solutions at the time we started using it.
  • Easy to create private rooms and add people
  • Effortless searching history of conversations
  • Simple to integrate other Atlassian products like confluence and Jira
  • UI and UX can be improved
  • Should allow mentions for people who are not in group
  • Should have a feature to reply to a message in group chat
  • Video feature should allow more than 20 people

Compared to Skype creating groups is easy and fast. Also , file sharing is easy and loads instantly . Emoji and gifs are much more better in HipChat compared to Skype .My company's management chose to use HipChat for our organization as they got the license of HipChat for cheaper deal than compared to other similar products in the market.
i like how its easy to login , create rooms or start private conversations . The best feature i like describing usability is searching history of conversation in either a room or private conversation just by typing single word .Easy file uploading and downloading .Mention feature is very easy to use which shows all the names starting with given letter .
HipChat support is good . Responds in timely manner when ever we have raised the request via email , phone and gives us continue update on the request .Though most of the questions are answered by HipChat FAQs , but they can still improve it and add more to the knowledge base .
Hipchat is well-suited when you are referring to other Atlassian products in conversation as well as when you writing a code and sending it in a chat . The whole code is very well formated and easy to read . I personally Find it less usable when using screensharing and video/audio feature. Didnt have really good experience in meetings
