HipChat vs Microsoft Teams: What are the differences?

Developers describe HipChat as "Supercharge team collaboration with group chat and IM". HipChat is a hosted private chat service for your company or team. Invite colleagues to share ideas and files in persistent group chat rooms. Get your team off AIM, Google Talk, and Skype — HipChat was built for business. On the other hand, Microsoft Teams is detailed as "Chat-based workspace in Office 365". See content and chat history anytime, including team chats with Skype that are visible to the whole team. Private group chats are available for smaller group conversations.

HipChat and Microsoft Teams can be categorized as "Group Chat & Notifications" tools.

Some of the features offered by HipChat are:

  • Desktop apps (Windows, Linux, Mac)
  • Mobile apps
  • Web app

On the other hand, Microsoft Teams provides the following key features:

  • All your content, tools, people, and conversations are available in the team workspace
  • Enjoy built-in access to SharePoint, OneNote, and Skype for Business
  • Work on documents right in the app

"Integrates well with a lot of developer tools" is the top reason why over 143 developers like HipChat, while over 4 developers mention "Free" as the leading cause for choosing Microsoft Teams.

According to the StackShare community, HipChat has a broader approval, being mentioned in 307 company stacks & 114 developers stacks; compared to Microsoft Teams, which is listed in 45 company stacks and 31 developer stacks.

    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.

    Team communications and notices, such as when a test suite has run, when commits have been made to one of our git repos.
