Sharing Chat Rooms!

HIDIVE has created a Sharable Direct Link which may be used when you create a Chat Room. Users no longer need to “Find” their friends chat. Share the link directly to your friends so they may hop right into your chatroom. 

Shared Chats are available to Subscribers that have Chat Enabled on their current profile.
