Group chat and IM built for teams

HipChat is a hosted private chat service for your company or team. Invite colleagues to share ideas and files in persistent group chat rooms. Get your team off AIM, Google Talk, and Skype – HipChat is built for business.

HipChat highlights

Persistent rooms and 1-to-1 chat

Share ideas, code, and files with your team in real time. Rooms are perfect for individual projects, teams, or entire departments. You can also hop into a 1-to-1 chat with a coworker anytime.

Complete chat history

Catch up on things you missed while you were away, and pick up right where you left off – from any device. HipChat saves your conversations so you'll never forget who said what, and when.

Drag-and-drop file sharing

Share mockups, PDFs, Office docs, and other files for instant feedback. HipChat keeps a complete history so you can access shared files anytime, anywhere.

Private, safe, and secure

Message teammates directly with @mentions, and easily invite other users in. Display data and alerts pushed automatically from other systems, like JIRA, Confluence, and more.

HipChat Social


Spice up your chats with the latest emoticons and memes. We're constantly adding to our library of 150+ emoticons, and you can even upload your own.
