HiveChat - a new approach to communication from the Russian developers
With the introduction of chat messengers became much simpler: to answer the other party can at any time, anywhere - whether it be a subway train or a working conference. But in such applications there is a drawback: the sides are hidden behind the avatars (and sometimes completely incomprehensible to put pictures), so with the living communion all this has nothing to do. But what if during the chat you see the interlocutor's face online?
Russian developers have released HiveChat application called that messenger even do not dare, because it allows you to correspond not with avatars and images from the Internet, but with real people: you can see in real-time every emotion to your message, you can simply gesture " give five "or send" a kiss. " Such an unconventional approach to communication so we hooked up, we could not try HiveChat.
If the usual messenger during intercourse before you permanently open dialogue, in this application at the bottom of each conversation additionally displayed live avatars interlocutors. Initially very strange: it seems that such correspondence is with a smartphone, but a feeling of live communication - like being right in front of the conversation participants.
Hybrid calls and messenger?
In simple terms, during the text further dialogue is a continuous broadcast video stream. At first glance, it is a kind of a video call, but we all know how this type of communication has a negative impact on the battery of the smartphone and the amount of traffic consumed.
With HiveChat different.
Due to the small size and bitrate "avatars live" video feed does not require a large amount of resources. That is, the smartphone is not quickly discharged (as in calling), not heated, the connection is stable even when the mobile Internet, and bandwidth consumption is minimal. Due to a hardware image processing avatars look good, even at low connection speeds.
Another feature application - live communication in the group. You can create your own group or join an existing one: office chat, thematic interest groups, dialogue with fellow students and so on. In the first case it is sufficient to open the side menu, click on "Create group", enter a name and invite the participants. This can be done both by messengers installed, and copy links to social networks.
In addition to chat with live avatars in HiveChat there are group video chats. Enough "waving" the interlocutor, to invite him to a whole video conversation as much as possible in a videochat can be 8 participants.
Another useful feature - Send Geolocation interlocutor. Just click on the appropriate button - and you can send your location, as well as to see the location of all the band members. Now no longer a question like "and where Sergei, why is it so long?".
And if you do not want to share your avatar?
Of course, the situations are different, and in some cases do not want to interlocutors saw you in real time. The solution is simple - click on the live avatars and it will replace the static.
This thing is only for the iPhone?
No, HiveChat available for Android, but the functionality of the version for the platform slightly reduced. On the iPhone to use the service is a pleasure, I do not even want to once again run plain text messengers.
Try this app is worth at least two reasons: firstly, a fundamentally new approach to communication; secondly, it is available for free. You can download it at these links: the iPhone; All Android.
