One of the things that we’ve been wanting to add to the site for a while is a way for improvisors to talk to each other more quickly. Earlier this year we added Communities to allow smaller, more focused conversations. Today we add chat functions to the site.
If you look to the bottom of the page, you’ll see the new Chat Toolbar. Use it to talk with your friends while you’re on the site. We’ll be adding more functionality to the chat plugin in the coming weeks, but check it out now and let us know how it’s going.
Also, less dramatically, we’ve updated the notifications options on the site. Several folks told us that it was hard to know when notifications came in or how to find them. We’ve added a new sidebar that will show any incoming messages.
Chat away and let us know how you’re using the new tools.
