HipChat is a web service that provides group and private chat, file sharing, and integrations. HipChat lets you bring the office with you wherever you go. Work from home, the train, your kid’s soccer game, your neighbor’s cousin’s bat mitzvah, you get the idea.
HipChat’s secure conversations are transferred in 256-bit SSL encryption – the same security protocol as online banks. Grab files from your desktop, DropBox, email or anywhere. HipChat shows a preview of the file to everyone in the room.
