No need for tin cans and string anymore, Sporclers. We’ve just unleashed the Sporcle Chat Public Beta to the masses.
In the past 2 years, Messages became an incredible feature for connectivity on Sporcle, and our goal is to make communication and collaboration even easier with chat.
You can access chat from the friends list on the right-hand side of the page (if you don’t see the friends list, you probably have it disabled in your Privacy Settings). Click on a friend in the list and a chat window will open for immediate correspondence and co-conspiring. Currently, the chat beta only supports one-on-one chat environments, so no group chats quite yet.
You can also access all of your chats through your inbox by clicking on the ‘Chats’ tab on the left-hand sidebar.
Of course, chat is way more fun with friends so invite some if you want to get full use of the new feature.
Chat is still very much in beta, so if you find any bugs or have ideas for improvement let us know on our Chat Feedback Thread. We hope chat makes it even easier to create the great quizzes and vibrant community that makes Sporcle great.
