SimplyChat was developed especially for BuddyPress. It is a standalone plugin, that runs on your own server and does not require the usage of an external service. It fully integrates with BuddyPress by pulling information about users and groups, profile pictures, accounts, friends, members and more. This also includes that the chat plugin will automatically create a group chat when a BuddyPress group is created. Plus it adds/removes users from that group chat if the members of the BP Group are being edited.

Offering private and public groups, extensive community-management tools and settings for the site administrators, the developers proudly call it the premier BuddyPress Livechat plugin.

SimplyChat was developed with responsiveness in mind, so your chat users will have the best possible user experience even on their mobile phone. The ability to ban users, filter profanity and more round up this complete livechat plugin.

It is compatible with the latest version of WordPress and BuddyPress and will be constantly updated. Our roadmap includes a lot of amazing new features, that will launch soon, including a complete encryption, more community management tools and more. Happy chatting!
