They already have chat rooms and private messages, we could also access it without needing to have the editor open. IRC also logs channels so we could answer questions at a later time.
I'm aware of that... You do that not only with IRC but, Yahoo, Google hangout, MSN chat and the list goes on... But, that's not the solution at all.
We are talking about the Waze's new chat implementation within WME. While in WME, we can use chat to point out things, answer question and work together with another editor on an issue.
- The goal is to have the chat out of the way to preserve the most screen space as possible.
- Move it to the left or/and make it so that editors can resize, reposition it.
- Another option is to have a transparent background.
- Even though, Waze picks rooms based on location, there are too many in a room that conversations gets each others way. Ability to pick a room and work one on one or just with handful editors would be great.
Bottom line is, there are a lot room to improve. It should only get better. I think, this is one of Waze's best feature to date.
