What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

Being able to join chat rooms from the Android app would be a plus! It would truly make us connected on the go, instead of having to sit down at our desks and open a browser window. This will allow more users to fully utilize the chat system and join events no matter where they are.

Oh yeah, more people using chat — exactly what Stack Overflow needs! – Cody Gray Aug 1 '13 at 8:33

This is possible, but very far down the roadmap -- definitely not in v1 of any of the mobile apps. It'd be a pretty big change for both chat and the app, and chat activity just doesn't seem to be large enough to justify it yet (I know, a bit of a chicken-and-egg problem).

In the meantime, the web version is actually pretty good and we use it internally a fair amount.

The web version is the best chat system I've used yet. Not that I've used many, but yeah. – Tshepang Aug 2 '13 at 19:18
Web chat is great. Web mobile chat on the other hand... – hichris123 Nov 5 '14 at 0:29
Chatting on a Nexus 10 for example is a bit pita. Zooming in/out makes divs overlapping each other and thus rendering the chat unusable. – WarrenFaith Nov 5 '14 at 10:45
No, mobile chat is not really useable. It lacks critical features – Shadow Wizard Sep 5 at 5:39
