How to host your first Chat with subscribers.
Really cool feature-- looking forward to incorporating this!
I understand the technical and financial reasons for this decision...but launching with full Android/desktop capabilities would have been smart and considerate of your creators.
I use a MacBook Pro, but primarily engage with my readers on my phone, a Samsung.
Just an urgent request—I know it is coming! #AudioIssues
This is a great idea. When it comes out for android, and especially desktop, I think I can make good use of it by drawing from my subscribers and new potential subscribers from other social media.
Amazing feature! Thanks Substack for this opportunity
What is the difference between Chat and the comments sections?
Love it! Will activate it once ready for Android!
Very cool feature!
Happy to see opportunities to converse with great thinkers!
Thanks Substack for the chat feature.
Exciting! Thanks for this feature and the use cases 👌
Will be interesting when it works for Android as well. It took me a while to realize that it doesn't currently, that information should be more prominent :)
Thanks for your hard work on this!
This post is helpful -- thank you -- and my chat thread launched well this past week (you can see my launch post at https://sarahrunning.substack.com/p/lets-chat -- I customized the Substack template for it. Thanks for providing the template!). However, I am still struggling with notifications. I only want to receive notifications when someone on my newsletter's chat posts. I do not want to receive notifications from other chat threads; for example, I am part of the Isolation Journals chat, which was generating a gazillion notifications of new posts, so I turned off notifications. Now I am not getting notifications for my own thread's posts. Anyway to change this so I get notifications only for my newsletter's chat?
Looking forward to when this is available on Android. Will you repeat this post then please as it is a bit irrelevant at the moment for us non iphone people?
I think this is spot on! It really opens up possibilities. You can share more the behind the scenes. I will definitely give it a try. Great work Substack team!
I was thinking a few days ago, how switching to substack gave me more confidence and ease in my writing process. This feature is super smart within the model.
As an Android user, I have to say this is the first time I've been frustrated with Substack rolling out features at different times. I'm getting all kinds of requests for chats with other Substacks that I can't participate in. It feels like we're being left behind a bit.
Exciting feature, thanks Substack
Wow that’s really amazing
