Obaa Messaging and file sharing app for groups
Obaa is a new kind of group collaboration app that comes with its own cloud storage made for students and researchers. On this platform, you can chat with friends and store your files in the cloud. This makes it easy to share those files in any chat thread without having to use a third-party integration or login to another platform so you can share a link to your cloud files.
Obaa has been made with other collaboration apps like Slack, Flock, and HipChat. These apps are great for easy communication but we still had to use another platform to share our files that could be very frustrating at times.
Typically in any group, some group members will use email or Facebook Messenger to communicate, then use Dropbox and Google Drive to share their files. This additional step is unnecessary if you can have both your communication and cloud files in one app. Which is what Obaa has brought for users.
Obaa has all the features you would expect from a first-class messaging app. You can have a 1-to-1 chat thread with a friend or colleague and they can see a live update of when you’re typing a message. We’ve also made the messaging experience more expressive with GIFS and emojis.
You can also create groups on Obaa centered around completing a task together; like a study group or a general group to chat with friends. You can make each group either public or private and have the option to curate your group by adding a description. If a group is public, anyone in your team can join but if you make it private; only the people you invite can see and participate in the group.
Native cloud storage
Obaa’s most exciting feature is the ability to have cloud storage on the same platform as your messaging. You can store and manage your files easily. To add files into a chat thread, just drag and drop from your cloud drive. Finally, Obaa is launching a private beta of their product in February 2017 and are excited to share their platform with the Tech Grapple community.
