[prMac.com] Singapore - Hoiio releases a new update on its Hoiio Chat app, a mobile app that enables free and instant group messaging across iPhones & Androids. This update allows users to invite up to 20 people to a group conversation; it is enough to fit in a soccer team and its coaches.
With mobile messaging being a routine activity, Hoiio want to build an app that will make it more enjoyable, convenient and accessible than what is available today.
"The most popular mobile messaging app allows only 6 people for a group conversation. This is very restrictive. It can't even fit my family members", said Ong Kok Choong, Hoiio CEO. He added, "We create bigger room for group chats so people can have more dynamic conversations with their families, classmates and soccer teams in one group chat".
A bigger group chat means more push notification going to be sent to the mobile phones. This can be quite disturbing especially when users are busy on their working desk. Therefore, the new version of Hoiio Chat also comes with Smart Notification. It allows users to configure the duration of push messages. Users can select one of the following options: always, 5 minutes, 30 minutes, 1 hour and never.
Hoiio Chat is 100% free and is built around the idea that conversations are better in groups. It's the perfect application for keeping in touch, sharing private conversations or organizing group gathering. One-to-one conversations are so ordinary. Step out of the norm with bigger group chats because conversations are better in groups.
