Live Chat Integration
New chat app is almost ready – it will support mobile, desktop and web and have text, voice, video and screen sharing released on different plans.
Text chat will be available on the Free plan.

I just moved my entire team over here. I didn't pay for our previous workplace and it had chat implementations. This is the one feature the entire team is very disappointed with, which makes a huge difference in our decision to stay. What is the status of this? It's obviously possible with all the other workplaces now available online since the "almost ready" comment.
Would be great if the chat app is a stand alone app based on discussions board.
I would also like to know what the status of this is. The last comment from Igor said it was almost ready over a year ago now. This would be a great feature!

Any news on this??

I'm also wondering when this will be available?
New chat app was "almost ready" in february 2019.
Is it ready now ?
Or do we have a different meaning of "almost" ?
When will this feature be available?
This would be great!
Wondered if this will be looked at? Chat like FB messenger within Freedcamp would be ideal.
I just registered for free Freedcamp. Seems like a great tool but the one most important thing I was looking for was a real time chat with my team. I come from Ryver and their messaging system was perfect but they are no longer free and we can't afford it. Like many others have commented, a Facebook messenger style would be perfect. What I want is real-time, in the app notification when my team has responded so we can have a live conversation. I see that this thread is years old. Has there been any new plans in this regard?

Interesting thread here.
I would prefer Desktop Notifications. Surely Pusher.com is not the only means to make this happen. I use a Help Desk system called Help Scout. Their push notifications are very nice.

the board/wall nor discussion applets are going to meet our requirements. we would like chat functionality and will have to migrate to something that has chat functionality built in if it is not something in the plans or process of being implemented. we love freedcamp though! helps us so much as a nonprofit to stay organized :)
@Wasim - sorry - we only build Freedcamp in-house after our recent journey with mobile apps development - https://blog.freedcamp.com/2017/09/07/android-application-status/
You can build any tool for Freedcamp when we will release API but I have no ETA for it at this stage either. Please subscribe to API feature and you will get updates from it.
Sorry for a late response - UserVoice put your response to spam and I only now decided to review and recover good posts from it.

Please checkout Facebook Workplace Chat, it's very similar to that.

Please add slack integration (Two way)

Can we build or help freedcamp adding free tools, like LiveChat group chat.
Should a live Chat integration not be an option to add chat to an external website, but manage this from within Freedcamp? I'm using this nice script from Codecanyon: https://codecanyon.net/item/php-live-support-chat/6905905, but the only unfortunate thing is, it is again another dashboard. When this would be in Freedcamp, you can have everyting ingetrated in one Online Tool.
Hoping this is still going, would like to see something like facebook messenger as mentioned previously, simple user to user chat with sound. Thanks!

I could see Basecamp 3 has a Live group chat for each Basecamp
From the site: https://basecamp.com/3/features
Chat with a group in real time.
Every Basecamp can have its own group chat.
Ask quick questions or share info.
Toss in work for quick feedback.
@mention people to get their attention.
Attach files, quotes, and code samples.
Have fun with sounds, video, and emoji!

"Just a simple chat/messaging system similar to Slack. Would be great to have rooms/topics and private messages. This would make communicating with the team so much better. Also a phone app while you're at it." from https://freedcamp.uservoice.com/forums/126945-suggestions-for-features/suggestions/15201426-chat-slacker-like
