            I really like HipChat, not only because it's available on whatever "machine/device" you use but it has a ton of add-ons that you can integrate in you chat room that keep you and your team constantly aware of what's happening with your business.

            Hipchat provides a comprehensive and searchable chat system for development and customer relations. It is integrated with GitHub and JIRA so our developers can have specific rooms for each project, and we also have rooms for each customer tied into their Twitter feeds so we know what is relevant and can track issues via Nagios alerts.

            Everyone in our company uses HipChat. From our help center to our engineering department, we do most of our internal conversations in hipchat rooms. Also as a remote engineering team, it is super useful to have a service like this so that conversations are logged and in the open.

            I use HipChat to communicate with group members. I like that I can hop on and catch up on any conversations that I missed.
