UPDATE | Tech issues with group chat

Hello folks. 😊 Apologies for taking a couple of days to address this officially, and thank you all for bearing with us while we hustled to nail down the issues and what workaorunds we can use.

What happened

We were planning to roll out a big software upgrade for group chat. This was going to include a bunch of new features, a tonne of bug fixes, and generally make group chat much better.

Buuuut thanks to some technical quirks, the update released at the wrong time. It went live before we could test it thoroughly and before we had a chance to post about all the exciting new additions to group chat. We were hoping for a slightly more exciting big reveal. 😅🤦🏻‍♂️

Known issues and workarounds

For now, here are the key things you need to know:
If you want to chat anonymously, you can still do that by creating an account with a name that isn't your real name. Once we have these bugs fixed, we can delete the account if you like.

These problems are all temporary and will be ironed out as soon as possible. Once the bugs have settled, we'll share a full announcement about the exciting new features we'll be introducing.

Let us know if you spot anything else

If you've noticed any other new issues with group chat (or solutions to those issues), please mention them below and we'll add them to the list to make everyone aware.

More to come after the weekend. 😊 Thank you all for being patient.

    It's not working at all on my phone, not sure if the mobile version is broken or if it's just me? Working ok on my laptop but has all the issues you mentioned

    @independent_ I had issues on my phone last night. You've got to use incognito tab to get around it. Annoying you can't look at anything else on your mobile when you on it 🙄. If it's still effecting playlist changing songs maybe get to a run 5 good songs then changing is a nip out of chat and back. It's annoying but temporary (hopefully). It's making hard for me to chat when I'm on the sofa or in bed
    Some people think I am unhappy. I'm not. I just approach silence in the world that never stops talking.

    @independent_ Were you using Incognito mode or normal mode on your phone?

    Thanks everyone - I'm closing this thread for now as we've created an official thread for the (now functional) software update. Feel free to post any new issues or feedback there. :)
