April Fool Public Relay Weekend!

Thanks for trying out the public relay - what a great time! We had over 150 people join the relay over the weekend - some participating, some just listening in. Topics of discussion included mobile technology, accessibility, snake breeding, and oh-so-many things. Messages sometimes flew so furiously that our phones couldn't keep up!

We got a lot of good feedback, and we're going to go back and figure out how to make group chat even better. We've learned a lot and discovered a lot of issues -- and we think we have good ideas on how to improve them while keeping the spontaneous nature of public chat alive. It's too much fun not to!

But if you need your HeyTell group chat fix, there's hope on the horizon. In the next month or so we're going to allow users (iOS & Android!) who have the Groups extra to create Shared Groups, which allow group members to "Reply All." Stay tuned!

  1. Steve and Jen,

    Thanks so much for making this happen and babysitting it all wknd to extend the experience.

    I met many good people as a result and got a glimpse of what future applications for heytell could be like.

    You guys have created a great product already and I am confident that the next steps you take will make it even better.

    Let me know if there is anything I can do to assist. I am signing up as a guinea pig now :)
