We’ve been giddy the past month because of one of our coolest cloud sharing features yet — Group chat. We revamped everything about our Groups, adding a ton of exciting ways to stay in even better touch with the people in your Groups. Now, not only do CX Groups allow you to chat with others in your Group, you can see which members are online, conduct Group actions without ever leaving the conversation, and catch up on Group chats in the Archives.
The new Groups are great for discussing online photos, too. Now, when you mouse over a photo, you’ll see a preview of the image — which you can talk about without ever leaving your Group window. It’s an ideal solution for family members or friends in multiple locations who want to look at photos together, all without ever having to leave their home bases. And since CX is working on adding video chat to our Groups, too, collaborating in the cloud has never been so easy — or fun.
Watch the video below for a step-by-step guide on how to use the new Group features, and be sure to tell us in the comments what your favorite aspects to the new developments are and what you’d like to see in the future. And mark your calendars for Thursday, April 26: we’re having a Twitter party about the new Groups, and we’ll also be talking about collaboration in the cloud. To RSVP, go here.
