We’ve received much feedback that having a separate chat stream for each source file didn’t mirror the way discussions were happening in the real world, where they often span source files. A discussion that starts with problematic code in one source file might end with relevant code being shared from another.
In response, we've introduced a new model that is both easier and more flexible. Instead of the chat stream changing as you move from file to file in your source tree, you’ll have a single chat stream that remains in place so that you and your team can bring in relevant code from other files and repos. For more information please check out the quick video linked below.
To try it out for yourself...
At the moment each team has a single chat stream (i.e., #general), but look out for another update from CodeStream in just a matter of weeks when we introduce the ability to create additional channels and direct message your teammates.
