Rich Text

A special flavour of Markdown enables richly formatted messages.

Support for bold, italic, links, lists, tables, images, code, and more.

Plus some special sauce of our own: For example, to paste an image, just hit Ctrl-V.

Made a typo? No problem, hit the (up arrow) key to edit your last message.


Following a conversation in a busy room could be tricky but Miaou visualises a conversation's flow so you can stay on top of things.


Everyone loves to choose a skin.


Miaou is highly extensible, with many plugins already written.

From embedding Wikipedia pages, StackOverflow questions and YouTube videos to plotting graphs and customising messages.

You can even challenge people to a game of Tribo!
