What is IRC?

Internet Relay Chat (IRC) is a popular communication protocol used by millions.

Grove gives you a private IRC server that works with the dozens of desktop, iOS, and Android IRC clients already available today. IRC makes it easy to create channels, chat with coworkers, and send private messages — everything you need to stay on the same page.

With Grove's improvements, such as searchable archives and access control, IRC is better than ever.
