We’re excited to announce a great new feature in HypSports! You’ll now be able to chat with other players in the game. Let’s take a look at how this new feature works:

There’s a number of unique chat channels you can visit. These individual channels correspond to the different sports we have in HypSports. 
GLOBAL – This chat room allows you talk to any and all players in the game.
PER SPORT – These channels allow you to chat with players that are playing in a particular sport (Basketball, Baseball, Football, Hockey, Soccer or League of Legends).
SEASON SHOWDOWN – In Season Showdown you’ll be able to chat with the other players that are in the current series with you.
H2H LEAGUES – You’ll be able to chat directly with your H2H Leagues opponent

You can find the chat feature towards the bottom of screen in the features where it’s available. To get into the conversation, tap inside the chat bar itself to open up the chat room. Then tap inside the message box at the bottom of the chat room, type your message and tap done. It’s that simple.

If you want to switch to a different chat room, you can do so within any of the chat rooms that you are currently in. Just tap the MENU button in the top left corner of the chat room and you’ll see a menu open up that will allow you to switch to another room.

You can hide the chat bar in each individual location that it appears.
Just tap on the chat icon next to the chat bar itself and then tap “HIDE CHAT BAR”. If you decide you want to turn it back on no worries, you can do that from the SETTINGS screen in the game. Settings will allow you to turn any of the individual chat rooms ON or OFF.

You can block or report someone by tapping on their profile picture within the chat room. This will bring up a menu that will allow you to select from the following options.
VIEW PROFILE – Will open up that player’s profile screen.
BLOCK – Will block all chat entries from that player so that you will no longer see them.
REPORT – This will report the player to HypSports Customer Support.

This new chat feature is going to be a great way to talk strategy or trash with all of your HypSports friends. We hope you enjoy it and look forward to chatting with you in the game. See you out there!
