Integrating Fleep with Google Hangouts Chat

The Fleep communication service is an alternative to Slack, HipChat, Flowdock, and Glip. Fleep differs from its competitors in a three key ways:

  • Fleep has a global user directory—you can connect with any Fleep user by adding their Fleep ID to a room;
  • Fleep works natively with email—you can easily send email to and from Fleep rooms;
  • Fleep doesn't yet have the concept of a "team", meaning you have to manually invite everyone to all company rooms. (This is a limitation, not a feature.)

In addition, Fleep currently offers unlimited history search to any number of users, for free.

As mentioned above, Fleep natively interoperates with email, but nothing else.

Therefore, if you're split between conversations on Fleep and Hangouts chat, you have to constantly switch between apps.

Instead of switching, you can bridge a Hangouts chat to a room in Fleep, thanks to the Fleep integration with Sameroom. Setting this up is straightforward.

Instructions

First, make sure you've got a Fleep room ready—create a new one, if necessary. Then, follow these steps:

You can control the resulting Tube on your Sameroom Manage dashboard. If you'd like to fine-tune the way message appear on either side of the Tube, you can do this by adjusting posting options.

We're @sameroomhq on Twitter, if you have any questions or comments about the integration.
