Joining a Sameroom Portal

By @abs

If someone sends you a URL with the "" domain, they want you to connect to their team chat from yours. It's a simple way of engaging in real-time communication with partners or clients without having to worry about getting your team invited to yet another chat group.

You can connect rooms/channels between Slack, HipChat, Skype, IRC, Campfire, Telegram, Google Hangouts, Gitter, and Flowdock, with more integrations in the pipeline.


  1. First, navigate to the Portal URL in your browser. The URL looks something like;

  2. Select your chat platform:Sameroom Portal URL Welcome

  3. If you’re connecting with Slack or HipChat, Sameroom will offer to create a new channel or room for you. (Hint: remove the # sign to create a private channel in Slack—it will only be visible to you.) To connect an existing channel or room, select it from the dropdown menu. Create or Select Channel

  4. Once connected, you can go to the Manage page to see the status of your Tube (hit the yellow button). Sameroom Success

At this point, you have real-time, bi-direction communication with the team on the other side of the Portal.
