Meebo launches Meebo Rooms
Web IM startup Meebo launches chat rooms for their multi-IM platform. Of course, the long awaited feature looks very like any other chat rooms. But its features go beyond old plain text ones.
First, Meebo Rooms don’t require a login to include new users. You can welcome up to 80 people at the same time, although Meebo is working to push far beyond this limit. Second, you can display photos, play songs or broadcast videos by simply type its URL into the chat form — just like Google Talk.
The feature can be spread on the Web through the magic of widget. Site owners will get to talk in one-to-many or a handful of them this way. Meebo Rooms has already plenty of users, including companies like Blip.tv, CNET, CollegeHumor, NBC Universal, Pop Sugar, Popular Mechanics, RockYou, Veoh, Us Weekly’s Us TV, and finally VIBE Magazine.
