Introducing Jira Cloud for Hangouts Chat

Countless teams in the workplace today use Hangouts Chat, an intelligent and secure collaboration tool in G Suite built to bring teams together for direct and group messaging. Enabling teams to deliver value to their customers faster by releasing earlier, more often, and more iteratively is what we’re all about, which is why we’re jazzed to announce that Jira Cloud customers can now have issue notifications sent right to Chat.

Seamless collaboration is king

Teamwork is most productive – and most fun! – when everyone can collaborate seamlessly. And let’s face it, switching contexts takes time and effort – time and effort better-spent building product. So, we partnered with the Chat team to come up with a plan to make teamwork simpler for teams using both Jira Cloud and Chat. Here’s a glimpse into what we came up with:

We built an integration that allows real-time issue updates – including when they’re created, reassigned, completed, or updated – to be delivered to teams in the context of the Chat platform. Now, every member of the team has all the vital information needed to ship software as updates occur, no matter where they’re working when those updates happen. With Jira Cloud for Hangouts Chat, it’s easier than ever for teams to stay in context, and focused on shipping product faster.
