Pros: Hipchat is fast for messaging (text), customization is cool with the emoticons, and it scales for large teams.

Cons: UI is outdated, video quality is poor, and the functionality is pretty buggy - lots of issues with cross-device compatibility and syncing.

Pros: HipChat is very easy to use. Teams can organize their communication and focus on the real problems. Has many integrations and fun add-ons.

Cons: The user interface is a little bit outdated. The deletion of messages can be a little tricky and gives much power to the administrator

Pros: I loved how simple it was to use. If you were wanting to put in a video or a picture, it made the process very easy and didn't give you any problems.

Cons: It was a little too easy, almost like an entry level player into the company chat world. I have now switched companies and we use Slack and it just has so many more features than HipChat.

Pros: I like the ability to create room, private and public for communication, the ability to add your own emojis is a nice touch as well. Dark mode is a great modern feature.

Cons: The only negative thing I can say about this software is that it can sometimes be buggy and you have to close the program and reopen it, but that takes very little time.

Nice app that does the job.

Pros: Its quite simple. You can create rooms very easily, you can find people very easily and special commands are easy to use. API integration is simple too

Cons: The captcha thing is really annoying. When you tried a wrong password too many times, it asks to select pictures with or without some type of images but its very buggy. Most of the times there are no responses

Definitely a useful program for maintaining a constant communication stream

Pros: You can setup rooms for different teams to operate within, we use this program every single day for those communications that don't really need an email but do need to be communicated in real time to the whole team.

Cons: There are some limits to the customization of this tool, including some overly restrictive and even seemingly trivial things that missing. For instance, you cannot change the size of the emoticons that you uploaded yourself without some extensive backend changes. Again, nothing game changing but there are minor annoyances.

Overall: We use this software every single day to facilitate live communication between our team members all over the world, in six major offices in as many countries. We used to use it for video conferencing as well, but it was slightly unstable so we switched to Teams for that.

Pros: Easy to create several different conversations and have several group chats. There is emojis and ability to paste in gifs.

Cons: When someone leaves the room it doesn't show that they are actually members of the room so it is hard to know who is actually a member of a room vs just not present right that moment.

We use HipChat currently as our main way of communicating at my work.

Pros: Ease of use...very easy to maneuver, msg people, etc. I like that there are integrations, for example bonusly (kudos).

Cons: You can't sort your conversations, say alphabetically, or even pin important ones. That is highly frustrating however it doesn't deter us from using it. The main other issue is that you can't have more than one admin. to a room...that's just silly.

Pros: You can create rooms, you can chat on mobile, it alerts you on your computer and on your phone when someone messages you, and the chat windows are easy to read.

Cons: It's a little glitchy. On one of my computers, it opens when I boot up and logs me directly in, but on my work computer, I have to log in every time. It's annoying but pretty minor.

Overall: Team building and social interaction at work which is super important!

Pros: A good video conferencing tool, it also allows members chat with each other, creating chat rooms. You will be provided with an activity log so you can collect all the required information. It is well integrated with JIRA, datalog, Jenkins. You can easily facilitate sharing of media files between the participants. Helps in efficient browsing and for small member teams, the service is free. Hipchat supports animated memes or gifs. Allows tagging and third-party integration.

Cons: We can't create temporary chat rooms. Some users find it difficult to use the system, improvements in graphical user interface would be ideal. Sometimes the file sharing creates a time lag. It can be used as a video calling app as screen sharing tends to be extremely slower to response.

Pros: It is a clean and easy to use chat tool for internal communication within your organization. It was easy to learn how to use and simple to implement, everyone was onboard in no time.

Cons: Hipchat was eventually replaced within our organization with Slack as we felt HipChat offered not a lot of customisability and we needed more features.

Pros: Rebranded as Stride, HipChat tries hard to replicate Slack with its team messaging features. The focus on conferencing and video calls is neat, but doesn't distract from the fact that Slack does most of what they do better.

Cons: Would have been nice to see Salesforce invest some time and resources into making something that doesn't look so similar to the product it's trying to knock off. Ended up switching back to Slack, since there's really no reason not to.

Pros: Hipchat allows you to communicate effectively and quickly. Working on a design team, it helps us share work and provide feedback while all working remotely. The boards help us keep track of who is on what project, and we share what we are working on within each board.

Cons: Finding shared resources in hipchat is a little difficult. I'm not the biggest fan of the right hand side bar on a board that just shows links. I would prefer for those links to be able to be named or have the conversation tied to it, or an image attached to understand which link is for which project.

Overall: The communication alone is a huge benefit. But knowing who is online and offline with the green, red and yellow dots makes my job easier because then I know who is online and who is available to talk to about a certain product/project. The ability to save conversations, store conversations and have conversations quickly is incredible.

Pros: In a global company with offices around the world you need to communicate with other employees and hipchat is for that. If you don't want to miss something important you will get email if you are offline. Search history is endless - no information will lost. List of files and links used in conversation makes work easilier. GIFS :)

Cons: Sometimes there is problem with connection or something - you send message twice while clicking "retry". There is a problem with conversation history with people that are not working anymore in you company - it disappears. If you send important message with some data that you need in your work to ex-employee, you have a problem. If you use www aplication you can around this problem, but it is not easy.

Cons: What I like least about this software is that it's not the easiest to implement after our team is already using another chat software. Don't get me wrong, it's not bad, just for us it didn't work out great.

Pros: It's very simple and easy to use. Because it's so simple, it works very quickly. We use it everyday for work, where we have over 100 people and dozens of chat groups. I like the different privacy options available per group, and also the fact that there's no limit in changing user handles. (We really have lots of fun with it at times -- builds company relationship.)

Cons: Sometimes I feel like it could get an upgrade -- maybe in design, formatting options, etc. Because it's very basic I sometimes feel like I'm 5 years behind when I'm on the window. Also wish I don't have to go to the HipChat page to toggle my account; being able to change my photo shouldn't take additional steps, I think.

Pros: Hipchat is similar to many competitors, but distinct in that it links directly to your Jira and Confluence accounts. This is valuable for internal documentation and other uses your businesses may have. If you use Atlassian products, don't waste your time with any competing chat applications. Hipchat has a mobile application, desktop app and a web app.

Cons: The iOS application hasn't been updated for iPhone X yet. It's about 7 months after launch and still no update which isn't the end of the world but very annoying.

Overall: Hipchat links directly with our Jira and Confluence accounts and is very valuable to our business practices.

Cons: I don't like how hard it is to search for a specific chat, and how you can't sort hipchat users from A-Z.

Pros: I love how easy this platform makes it to interact with my colleagues. The customizable emojis is a great touch. I never had loading problems with HipChat.

Cons: The reason my company switched from HipChat to our current platform is because we wanted a way to call, video chat, and IM colleagues all in one platform. I think that would be the con of HC.

Pros: HipChat helped our large team of people communicate regardless of where we were. HipChat has a solid mobile app that made it easy to continue conversations even if we weren't at our desk.

Cons: The native Windows client periodically would run into performance problems, and with a high DPI display, the text could be quite hard to read at times.

Pros: HipChat more or less does what it's made for. If your team is dispersed, then HipChat helps you to communicate with it's chat and instant messaging platform.

Cons: It is sometimes buggy and slow. Sometimes connecting takes a lot of time, and there may be some delays.

Comments: Valuable tool for the working professionals.

Pros: Hipchat provides the ability to instantly collaborate with colleagues anywhere in the world to communicate information, ask questions, or disseminate information to a group. The ability to add images and send formatted code snippets adds significant value to this product.

Cons: It would be nice its it had more skins than just the light and dark. The information with the dark skin is difficult to read. One other minor issue is that it will sometimes lose network connection and you have to restart it to get the connection back.

Forget the last minute meetings with your team with Hipchat everything is easier.

Pros: Everything you need to maintain a fluid communication with your work team and your clients. It is so efficient that you can save files or conversations if you use them.

Cons: I think it lacks that its interface is more harmonious, intuitive and easier to use more than anything in their chat rooms. The quality of the video chat is very good but it needs a bit to improve the speed. The rest is a very good tool.

Overall: HipChat allows me access from any browser and access from mobile devices for iPhone and Android. It also allows integration into social networks like Twitter. It is all you need to keep in touch with your work team.

Pros: Hipchat features group and video chats. I used it with a couple of clients of mine, who have this in their environment. I loved that you can just copy-and-paste screen captures into the software, without needing to save the screen capture first. They also have cool shortcuts for doing just about anything on the software.

Cons: Hipchat is prone to crashing. Sometimes, it goes offline without any warning. I found myself at times typing text into a chat window, without knowing that I was already offline, and that my teammates could no longer see me as online. This was quite a hassle, since I find myself missing important messages at times.

Overall: I had to use this because it was a client requirement. However, if given a choice, I'd have used another program because Hipchat is unreliable at times, crashing without any warning, or even logging off without me knowing that I'm no longer online.

Pros: I like the ease of use in that the structure is intuitive. You have a team and rooms. You can see when others are online in your team. It's great for a team of about 50 people. It makes more sense to people right off the bat than Slack, which has to really be explained with how different teams work with multiple email addresses and channels are hidden until you search for them.

Cons: We needed to be able to see the customizable status without hovering, which is why we moved to Slack. But, I believe they just added this feature.

Pros: HipChat (now Stride) is another great tool from Atlassian and it offers an amazing user experience, besides it enables us contact our team with ease through chat, direct messages, channels and video meetings. We've been using the free plan.

Cons: The fact that HipChat (Stride) offers almost everything that Slack already does, but it's not used as much. So if you want a tool for both personal and business purposes (in one place with different accounts), I wouldn't recommend it.

Pros: Once again the environment of Jira + HipChat + bitbucket + confluence works like a charm.
It is really good for Project Management teams and as a developer I love it that it is based on the xmpp protocol.

Cons: There was a notification issue, people say that slack overwhelms them but hipchat did the opposite.
You could miss notifications or actually notifications are not sent.
Lastly it did not allow for channels to be created on the fly and just add a few people to talk with.
The user feel was not great either.

Overall: Messaging.

Cons: As compared to other software in the category like slack, it lacks feature clarity. integration with other App as it is available in SLACK is not available in case of Hip chat.notifications in HipChat are inconsistent between mobile and web app. Editing and deleting the message at will is not good in Hip Chat as user to dig and go through setting and chat history. But in Slack it is quite comfortable.Video call quality in Hipchat is certainly better then other software like Zoom.Only admin is allowed to setup chat groups, find out or going through activity logs for any specific is tedious in Hipchat. Mobile app version is not that much good it is slow and sometime loose the connection with server. Certainly not the best tool to use when we have other better option available like slack and zoom.

Cons: I don't like the cost of using it. I believe the acquisition from Altassian has resulted in higher prices to use it.

Pros: What I really liked about this software was its adaptability, its efficiency when it comes to having a real-time communication, regardless of whether it is within a small group or the entire company. Its interface is simple with a nice design that makes it unique. What fascinated me most was his support for all the conversations, even if you had a hardware failure you can recover that data thanks to the Hipchat Data Center, definitely the best of everything!

Cons: Hipchat is one of those software that they like and very much. Your free trial is as good as the paid version. The price value relationship is very fair. I love!

Overall: With Hipchat the communication within the company is much more solid, it allows us to keep up with the tasks and that is very important.

Pros: We use HipChat in our project as it comes with JIRA and other Atlassian softwares like confluence and bitbucket.
Our teammates communicate daily and use it in both formal and informal ways to manage projects/software development.
To create the rooms for discussion is very easy as it is collobarated with JIRA and confluence.
Since HipChat and JIRA are belongs to same group so HipChat has decent and hassle-free integration with JIRA.
It is having the Cross-platform support and hence runs on most of the computing devices and it is having the efficient search too.
Very good in Media/file sharing across the members.

Cons: Mobile app is not very responsive, Sometimes connection to HipChat servers are taking too long even on good internet speed.
We cannot use this tool for video and audio calls as the response is very slow.
Costwise Little expensive
Better notification system is required when the the user is offline.

Overall: We use HipChat in our project as it comes with JIRA and other Atlassian software's like confluence and bitbucket.

Pros: The interface is very well done and the integration with Confluence, JIRA, Bitbucket and Redmine is very ingenious. We have used several collaboration tools based on chat, but we can say that Hipchat is the best. The availability it presents on all platforms is very useful and it is easy to make the transition between the servers. It can be used on Windows and Mac desktops without any problems. The only thing that I have been able to observe is that for the Mac client it offers a very useful screen capture function, being the opposite for those Windows clients. The version hosted in the Hipchat cloud offered us the benefits of very low implementation and maintenance resource requirements.

Cons: Some users have told me that sometimes it has errors, and they do not allow to access the account again, but it works again after several attempts, (please check this comment and solve with some update).

Overall: It allows us to save efforts during calls. Transmit messages is very simple, even in different places it has become very easy and easy to use, (only publish it in the group and it appears). It is useful for small talks and file sharing.

Pros: Integrations with JIRA and Confluence are great. Custom emojis are fun, and overall it does what it should, allowing team members to instantly communicate. Interface is clear and simple, although there certainly is nicer looking software out there.

Cons: We ended up moving on from HipChat to a more full-featured instant messaging and collaboration tool. HipChat is a basic chat platform and doesn't offer features like ad hoc group chats (without creating a separate room) or an inline video player. Chat histories are purged after a short amount of time, which is frustrating, and the search features are mediocre.

Some time we have to bear with unwanted messages

Overall: Best messaging tool by Atlassian

Pros: The service is very straight forward and easy to use. No one has any questions or issues whenever they start using it. It just simply works. My favorite perk, over other chats, is the ability to sort and rearrange your contacts (those you chat with). Mobile apps are good too.

Cons: Not as many integration as competitor chat applications have. Wish they had a few more many streamed ones.

A great product from Atlassian that stands on its own

Pros: Hipchat is a very simple, very functional, very useful, and easily managed platform. The free tier offers a small team to work and get into a workflow with the product before expanding it to the greater organization. Intuitive and simple design, combined with a product that "just works" makes Hipchat a no brainer, with or without other Atlassian products.

Cons: It does lack some of the features that newer entrants like Slack offer, but it's all about how complicated you need your chat program to be. Definitely not a deal breaker.

We Use Hipchat for our office communication. It allows us to create teams and chat in single window.

Pros: It is very user friendly. It allows us to access the old messages as it has messages history. It also allows us for the Video Chat. Installing this application is very easy in the Desktops. It also provides emoticons which gives us immense pleasure to share with the team. Chat process is very fast by this application.

Cons: Screen sharing is not that good when we are having a video chat with someone. I found that this application is little bit slow in Mobile when compared to Desktop. Authority is given to admins only to create the teams to chat. Application gets closed whenever updates are happened which irritates us sometimes.

Overall: Time is saved alot here by using this application, which increases the productivity of the individual teams which leads to achieve the organization goals in less time.

HipChat has been of great help to us to improve the internal communication without distractions

Pros: We started using this tool or app when we looked for alternatives to whatsapp since employees were always distracted by non-work conversations. So we use this app for work only.

Cons: Everything has worked very well, we have achieved a harmony between time and deliveries that makes us all happy, communication within the company has improved significantly

Overall: If you are looking for an alternative to instant messages for companies, this is the solution

It is an instant messaging service, similar. You can upload your gifs to chat!...That is really fun.

Pros: The software has a clean and comfortable interface to use, it is easy to share images, files, screen photos. It serves to communicate with your work team in either the office or remotely.

Cons: So far it has worked well and without problems. Maybe I can make video calls and share a little heavy files through chat.

Overall: HipChat is not the typical boring chat, being able to integrate gifs and emojis takes away the heavy chats of work (without leaving aside the professional question)

Easy, fun tool for team communication & collaboration!

Comments: HipChat is one of the easiest, best tools for team collaboration and instant messaging. Reliable, intuitive and offers some customizations.

Pros: Very simple to use, intuitive (for the most part), offers calling ability (very useful for international teams), easy file sharing, etc. Also offers fun emojis that every team can customize and add their own. Overall very good reliability, and very efficient tool.

Cons: Sometimes HipChat logs you out accidentally/automatically, with no notification (until you switch back to tab) which is annoying. Calling can sometimes have minor connectivity issues, but for the most part is stable. Customization and functionalities could be improved by adding more options (like sorting chats easier, etc.)

Pros: I have tried a lot of programs out there, this is simple.
You can create rooms, choose who you invite to the room, make the room private and that is it
You can start chatting and colaborating on each single room (rooms can be used from projects for example)
So everything is related to the same project.
You can start with Free which is awesome

Pros: Incredible software for chat between users of a company, offers private conversations, groups, messages and what I like the most is that it offers videoconferences and thus be able to make a more effective communication among employees

Cons: I feel that its interface is very heavy and it does not suit me at times, it gets very slow and it takes a while to respond, I would like it to improve that, the rest is very incredible

Pros: I like the UI - super perfect and simple to utilize, just the most vital capacities are available so there's no messiness. The senseless emoticons enable me to add identity to something else "proficient" correspondence. Furthermore, it's anything but difficult to share records.

Cons: The notices are conflicting - some of the time I get them on my telephone when I'm disconnected, here and there I don't. Once in a while I get an email that one of my rooms was refreshed, now and then I don't. I likewise wish there was a free video conferencing capacity. We could utilize it for a long time for reasons unknown without paying, and after that it was expelled. It was an incredible incorporated video/call highlight; why influence me to go to a different device that will enable me to do it for nothing?

Hipchat was a fine communication tool for my team.

Pros: I like the HipChat keeps the history of our chat. We're able to search the chat and find key discussions or statements.

Cons: The notification system could definitely be improved. You either get notified every time or never. It's hard to catch up with chats other than using the search function.

Pros: HipChat has given me the ability to speak to my entire team via message or video chat. This can happen regardless of if i am in the office or in my car. Just in case you're trying to contact someone and they are not in hipchat that fact that is notified via email that someone is talking about them, or that they have a message is amazing. So many times we send a team member a text message they never received. One of the greatest moments in my life was being sent something important via Hipchat and going back and finding it with ease... I love you hipchat ...

Pros: HipChat is, hands down, the best messaging software I have ever used at a company. It was so easy to use, it allowed me to IM individuals, or IM in a group. It allowed me to link anything I wanted in the chat - documents, links, images, text, anything you can think of.

Cons: HipChat had a few days where it would crash or not be working as well. I have no idea if that was something on our IT team's side or something with HipChat, but for the most part it worked great.

Pros: HipChat does have some good integrations and does function as a basic collaboration tool. It has decent customizations and allows for multiple teams to collaborate. It also is a closely tied to JIRA with can be useful when discussing deployments.

Cons: Overall it seems like HipChat is just banking that you will use it because you use JIRA. We have found Slack to be more flexible and it drives higher user engagement internally which is the most important metric when launching a new collaboration platform.

The best option to establish clear communication between co-workers.

Pros: We searched for time the best way to communicate internally, we used some more known options, however none liked it as much as it was HipChat. Its friendly interface and its easy use, made us select it as the primary work tool to communicate with each other.

Cons: We would like to have interface updates, more customization options for users to be more entertaining, although I have to mention that just as we have worked perfectly.

Overall: If you are looking for efficient and fast communication within your company, this application is the ideal one.
