Pro I like this
Pro Free conference calling
Pro Can hide topics until new comment is received
You can remove a topic from your nav bar and have it reappear when new messages are sent in that topic.
Pro Hosted on Amazon
Hosted on Amazon cloud. Service has been very reliable. Ryver has been unavailable maybe once or twice in the last 6 months. (We used to use HipChat and in early 2016, HipChat was crashing once or twice a week for a month or so.)
Pro You can edit a chat message
Ever make a mistake in a conversation? Of course! With Ryver, you can edit chats that you've sent. (Wish iOS Messages would do this some day!)
Con Lacks customization options
Con Having Chat and Posts for Teams is confusing to some users
It takes some time to get accustomed to all the features of the program, like a separate chat and a feed for team posts.
