I’ve written about Sameroom a couple of times in the past. The idea of the platform was to allow individuals to collaborate, no matter which chat tool they used. When I last checked in with Sameroom a couple of years ago, the company was pivoting from its original product vision — its own chat tool, Kato — and becoming a kind of hug, or integration bus for chat.
And Sameroom was hitting it hard. At its launch it was supporting a plethora of different chat products — HipChat, Campfire, IRC, Slack, Glip, Fleep, Gitter, Kato, Hall, Flowdock, Wire, Zulip, ChatGrape, Cotap, Unison, Quip, Cisco Spark, Jive Chime, Mez, Skype for Business, Facebook at Work and Talko — in an effort to truly deliver a “from anything, to anything” paradigm.
