HipChat for iPhone – Now with more File Power
Get those iPhones ready, HipChat has an update is here and we have some updates to share – This one is all about the files!
File viewing and sharing are two of the most used features on both the desktop and mobile clients. We’ve made some updates you’re going to love.
With HipChat’s fresh file viewing capabilities, you can now view over 35+ file types (and counting) — all within the app! This gives the HipChat app the capability to treat more file types than the mobile web browser can treat.
Cool. What else? Now, you can also take a .PSD (Photoshop) file, and convert it to a .JPG right in the app (yep, no more file viewing compatibility issues).
Working on the go just got lighter.
Shoot and share movies in HipChat
What if you’re out having lunch and you happen to meet Bill Nye, The Science Fellow while waiting to get your tacos? Or you want your coworkers to know how much joy you’re having on vacation?
With HipChat’s fresh movie shoot and share, you can capture that once in a lifetime practice and share from HipChat all from within the app. How does it work? It’s elementary, just shoot a movie from HipChat or choose from your camera roll, and drop it into your conversation. That’s it!
Opening the app from a thrust notification no longer causes in-app notifications to showcase the talk you’re presently in.
And if you haven’t checked out the all fresh web client, you should! We gave that some special treatment, too. You’ll be able to view your files just as lightly there as you can with this app.
We want to hear your feedback!
