HipChat is an application service provider that launched in January 2010[1] after a one month beta period[2] for internal/private chat and instant messaging. It allows users to create and participate in chat rooms and send one-on-one messages with other people in a group-centric format.


The primary features of HipChat are chat rooms, one-on-one messaging, searchable chat history, image sharing, file uploading, and SMS messaging for one-on-one conversations. The product is available both as a web-based client and a downloadable AIR application.
