It took us slightly longer, but group chat is finally here. If you have an iPhone, BlackBerry or Android phone, simply upgrade to version 2.6 of our software to enjoy group chat. If you have a Nokia Symbian S60 phone, we are working on adding group chat to our Symbian client and hope to release it shortly.
Here are a few important notes on group chat:
- currently group chat is limited to 5 people. in the future we will increase this limit.
- you can exit a group chat that you are in at any time. simply delete the group conversation from the main Chats window to do that.
- you can control group chat alerts and notifications separately from individual messages.
we are continuing to work on adding more cool group chat features and fixing bugs... if you have any group chat feedback, let us know.
