Try Chat now in the Substack iOS app
I have no idea how this is gonna play out long term but I’m here for it! The combo of Substack paywall + threads = Twitter that I’d actually like to use
So with an Android I am excluded from participation, sob.
Wow, Substack is killing it! Love this feature. I would much rather keep my audience on this platform than set up some other situation. Thinking I'll use it for my paid readers but we'll see. How are others feeling about this.
ONCE AGAIN, iOS users are the favored few.
I'll get excited about this (maybe) when Android launches it. Meanwhile, I'm still exploring the current features, so we're good. But this is why that Clubhouse thing (or whatever it was called) never really took off... far too exclusive a club. (You know iOS is not the largest platform for mobile users, right?)
I'm not upset, of course - just a little annoyed to keep getting emails about it and forgetting NOT to click the big orange chat button. One day, it'll launch, but by then I'll have trained myself not to click on it.
Is there a way to turn off chat notifications (and leave the other substack notifications in place)?
Thanks for enabling chats. How does this different from commenting after a post?
I’m trying to get ahead of the curve and be the first cynical contrarian hipster to post a complaint about this new feature but I can’t think of anything to moan about just yet. Oh well.
Worth a try!! Just hope it does not become fertile ground for Trolls to verbally filet people ala FB and Twitter... but that is free speech. One of Substacks positives, is that there is more substance and civility. Good luck!
Hey Ho, let’s go!
Looking forward to using this when the android version becomes available!
I absolutely LOVE substack and am so excited to be part of this community. However, I have to say as a new member, it's a little concerning to see you focused on rolling out new features (Eg chat and video) when there's a lot to be improved upon in existing features that could bring immediate value to members, such as but not limited to
1) importing selected posts from Medium (not everything as a Zip file(
2) embeddable code to put a pop-up on existing sites
3) making embeddable code more customizable on squarespace
4) the ability to delete posts....why isn't this a thing?
5) hiring more community managers. In the last community hours, not a single one of my questions was responded to...
More API in general....
Thanks for listening.
Happy to have this feature and see where it goes, so I’m here for the ride!
Just testing this site, I have no idea how to use it yet
I really look forward to trying chat once i'ts available in the Android app. It saddens me that you're ignoring so many of your readers and writers in this way.
Great idea, but it should be on the web version and android app too!
