SpaceHey turns two! πŸŽ‚

Today, SpaceHey turns two! Time really flies when you're having fun! πŸ₯³

The past two years have been a blast! SpaceHey grew to nearly 600k users, SpaceHey turned into a big, friendly community and there are now hundreds of thousands of blog entries, forum topics, bulletins and - last but not least - millions of Instant Messages! And that's what today's update is all about!

Introducing the all-new SpaceHey IM

One of the most used features on SpaceHey is the Instant Messenger: it allows you to chat with your friends on SpaceHey in 1:1 conversations!

It worked pretty well in the past 2 years, but I always imagined it to be better in many ways and unleash it's full potential: It could look way better, it could be faster, and it should be optimized for mobile browsers even better.

That's why I've spent the past weeks finally! working on those aspects - and the result of it is a completely new SpaceHey Instant Messenger with a new design, new features and a faster backend!

What's New

The new Instant Messenger has a completely new, retro design which works super-well on both mobile and desktop browsers. Chat messages are now delivered in nearly real-time, and you can filter your chats to only show messages from your "Favorite Users" list!

The new SpaceHey IM prominently shows the current status of the chat participants, so your friends can easily see what you're up to!

Delete messages & control who can message you!

But that's not all! There are also two new, highly-requested IM features rolling out today: The option to fully delete messages for both chat participants and the option to customize who can start an IM conversation with you!

Until now, only your Friends could start IM conversations with you. But now, you can change it to include everyone on SpaceHey - or nobody - to completely disable IMs - if you want to! You can change this setting in your Account Settings.

Thank you to every single one of you!

I want to take this special day as an opportunity to say thank you. Thank you for all the support, the suggestions and all the kind words in the past 2 years (I still can't believe it's already 2 years)! SpaceHey wouldn't be as awesome and fun as it is without every one of you - so THANK YOU!

Additionally, I want to give a huge shout-out to everyone who supports SpaceHey - no matter if it's a donation, or buying some merchandise - SpaceHey couldn't exists financially without you! You can support SpaceHey here β†’

I hope you enjoy this big IM update today! And now, let's all celebrate the second anniversary of SpaceHey together! πŸ₯³

It seems like the update broke a few servers, so SpaceHey might be a bit unstable right now. Sorry! I'm working on it!

UPDATE:
Everything should be back online and fully working! Please let me know if anything doesn't work for you!
Enjoy the SpaceHey IM update!

It seems the Safari browser doesnt support it, try using Chrome/Firefox!

@matt is there possibly another way 2 do it?

by β™‘ gh0sty bunny xpβ™‘; ; Report

I dont know where else it would work tbh, just try different things. Im sure An will update it when he can

by Matt; ; Report

More of an update for everyone, I did some troubleshooting myself and I think its all of mobile down for IM. I believe its the way that phones transfer data from the server thats different to PC. Ill do some more testing to try find a solution until An can get it fixed!

Yeah I could do it on my laptop but my grandma is able to see my search history on there and she’d find out I’m gay so yeah…
