Building a full-fledged Chat in Wave

Hi!

Long time no see! But I haven’t forgotten about my blog! The truth is I’ve been really busy and I’ll be making some cool announcements soon. The first of them is related to Wave. Wave is growing at a jaw-dropping rate and we have surpassed 3 million active users. Yes, 3 million! Since Wave’s success is absolutely undeniable, we’ve decided that we should give our awesome users a feature they have been asking for a long time: a full-fledged chat! From now on, whenever you have an active Wave, you will be able to send as many messages as you like, just like in any instant messaging App!

Building a real time chat app that works blazingly fast with our precise pin-point location system has been a real engineering feat. At the Wave Team (check the awesome picture below!) we have worked really hard to optimise the system and drive performance.

Since this is now version 2.2, we have also thought it would be a good idea to give the system some design improvements, making everything friendlier and prettier ;). Check out our cool new screenshots below!

 

Give it a try and let me know in the comments what you think ;)!
