  • Private message conversations. Private messages now appear as conversations so you can easily look back at the history of the discussion. The whole page feels like one continuous chat. You can even have a private message conversation among a group of people. - March 9, 2016
  • Removal of nested quotes. We've received feedback that the nested quotes are too difficult to read when many quotes are nested within each other. Therefore, we've removed this default behavior. We're planning to announce a private message conversation feature soon which will make it much easier to follow the history of a private message discussion betwene two or more people. - March 1, 2016
