RumbleTalk FAQ

RumbleTalk is an innovative chat platform for online communities and experts. It can be used for:

  • Social: Social features can be turned on/off as needed.

RumbleTalk chat room service allows an easy customization, responsive design, and simple integration (embed) into any website.
  • Experts: Add an expert chat and talk in private conversation with your audience.

RumbleTalk chat is designed for brand communities, live events, panel discussions, academic institutions, online trading, live radio, fan clubs, blogs, connecting with customers, or just chatting with your friends!

With RumbleTalk, you'll be able to engage your online community (public or private room) and increase the number of loyal, active consumers who return to your brand time and time again.

RumbleTalk works seamlessly on mobile phones, tablets, laptops and personal computers and can be embedded into websites, Facebook and even stand as an independent URL. With just one line of code, you can transform a billboard website into a vibrant online community.

Focused on online communities, RumbleTalk has a strong REST API. We designed a chat room with various features to easily share information. Right out of the box, you and your users will be able to:

  • Send text messages or one on one private messages
  • Send short video and audio messages
  • Make one-on-one video calls (WebRTC based)
  • Share images and files including:
  • Images, Word docs, Excel files, and PowerPoint presentations
  • Add YouTube and Vimeo videos to the conversation
  • Add a video broadcast using "YouTube Live"
  • Have private discussions
  • Share messages on Twitter and Facebook

A RumbleTalk group chat is versatile and can be embedded in any website as a chat box or floating icon with just one line of code. You can also incorporate your group chat in a Facebook page to capture a larger audience.

If you don't have a website, we'll give you a URL to send to your community. The best part? You can choose one, two, or all options and embed as many times in as many sites as you like.

Yes, sure! RumbleTalk group chat rooms will work on any smart device using a modern web browser.

For advanced users and designers, you can even customize the mobile group chat design using CSS.

We can do that, too.

Just let us know by emailing and we'll find a way to accommodate.

You can choose to have users log in with any combination of up to four options or limit it to just one of the following:

Yep! While many of the conversations occur in the main window, users can also conduct private conversations and private video calls with other users.

The chat owner may set private messages to OFF, so private messages will be disabled to all.
The chat owner may set private messages to ADMINS only, so private messages can only be send to the ADMIN and by ADMIN.

Sure! You can upload most file types including PDF's, Word Documents, Excel Files, PowerPoint Presentations, pictures and more.

URLs will display as hyperlinks in the chat, and links to videos will automatically be embedded, so everyone can watch and respond within the group chat (you can disable this auto hyperlink feature).

Make sure that your Facebook account email and RumbleTalk account email are the same.

You sure can. We host the group chat room on our servers so you and your customers can access it without embedding within a webpage. You'll be provided with a URL that can be sent to whomever you'd like to participate in the conversation. The group chat still works the same as if you were going to embed it in a website or add it to a Facebook page, meaning you can still customize allthe same settings.

RumbleTalk group chat rooms can be integrated as a floating icon. (remove "just take a look at the bottom right corner of this page!")

Live calls option requires that the chat will be placed in a secure webpage (HTTPS URL)

We save the transcript based on your preferences. If you choose to keep a conversation private, we will not record or save the transcript. If the conversation is not set to private, the group chat transcript will show in the group chat as users scroll up. This transcript can be exported by the group chat owner into a HTML file from the admin page or directly from the group chat.

It depends. By default, any user can export the group chat history by clicking the export button within the chat. This icon can be turned off from the admin panel by the group chat owner.

Also from the admin panel, the group chat owner can select a date range and export the group chat history using the "export archive" option.

Sure, as a measure of security to prevent groups of users from spamming the chat (flooding), when they start typing too fast, they are kicked out of the chat with a message stating: "You are typing too fast."

Yes, we do.

It actually means that we let customers define a list of unauthorized words. It could be curse or a competitor name that is not welcomed in the chat.

The filter is filtering words both on users' names and room messages.

Currently, we support PayWall for logging into the chat.

Sure! You can add a RumbleTalk chat to your website and set it to be a group chat or a PayWall chat.
