    Pros: 

    Nothing that Discord and Slack doesn't already offer.

    Cons: 

    Entirely pointless.

    Another chat app that attempts to jump on the Slack/Discord bandwagon.

    It's not even trying to do something unique with its UI or features. It's literally just another rip-off. Why?

    Andrew-David has used this product for one day.
  • Pros: 

    are there?

    Cons: 

    too much the same chat apps already

    Another chat app? whats next? Yahoo crypto coin?

    Alexey Tseitlin has never used this product.

Oath (formerly Yahoo) quietly released a new chat app. At first glance, I'm not sure what's new or unique from the many other mobile chat apps, but downloading now... I just need an invite. 🙏🏼

@rrhoover I like how it looks. As cute as its name.

@rrhoover it would be fun to hear the backstory on this product... Was squirrel in development before the acquisition and just now launching? Or, is this a preview of what we can expect from "Y!" post Verizon acquisition.

@arunsathiya @dhivya_sriram send a mail to squirrel.invite@oath.com I sent it a few seconds ago and am waiting for an invite :)

The screenshots look great ! Would be nice to find out how different it is from Discord in terms of what discord offers to people just looking to chat on the platform. For starters , if it has the basic discord features + the reply option for messages, I am half sold 😂😂😂 All I need to get started is an invite :P

As someone who already juggles iMessage, Discord, Instagram Direct, and Snap, I don’t see the point. This looks like a sad discord clone.

whats next? Yahoo crypto coin? :D

It looks suspiciously similar to the Discord server switcher and channel selector... 🤔
