Dear Envolve Customer -
I'm writing to inform you that the Envolve chat service will be shutting down on September 30th. Read on for details and what replacements for Envolve are available.
We’ve chosen to sunset Envolve in order to focus entirely on Firebase, our developer platform. Over the last 3 years, Firebase has grown tremendously and is now the focus of our engineering team and business. As a result, we haven't been able to give enough attention and maintainance to Envolve.
After some careful deliberation, we reached the conclusion that our Envolve customers will be better served by switching to another chat service. This was a difficult decision for us, but we believe it is the best outcome for everyone. Other chat services are now more full-featured, are better maintained, and have support on more platforms.
Therefore, on September 30th, 2014, all Envolve services will be discontinued.
DO not worry though I'm sure our intrepid lead will let us know what is going to happen after Envolve closes it's doors.
On a side note maybe it would not be a bad thing for us to loose our chat boxes for a while it seems the forum side of the site was hampered a bit by the chat, maybe things will pick up.
