All-In-One Design
Flamingo's unified window design allows you to maximize the utility of your screen real estate. In addition to the default, compact single conversation layout, multiple conversations can be opened side by side and switched between seamlessly. Want even more control? The unified window is completely modular, and each conversation pane can be detached from the main window into its own separate window. So no matter how you like to manage your screen space, Flamingo's extensive layout options have you covered.
Inline Media
Stay in the conversation with inline media support for CloudApp, Droplr, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and more services in the future. Content from links sent or received from any of these services, and also direct image/video links will be shown inline in Flamingo (including animated GIFs!). In addition, the corresponding OS X notifications will show a customized preview of the content, including a thumbnail image (OS X 10.9+ only).
Services
With support for Google Talk, Facebook, and other XMPP services, Flamingo is your one stop chat shop (say that 10 times fast).
Unified Buddies
Let Flamingo handle the complexity of multiple accounts for you. When you have the same buddy on multiple accounts, they are intelligently grouped into a single person on your buddy list. Switching accounts manually is easy, but Flamingo does one better — when a buddy goes offline on one service, it automatically switches to a different service if that buddy is online on it so that your messages get delivered regardless of which account they're using.
File Transfer
With 3 options to choose from, Flamingo lets you share files without limits. The convenient Direct Connection feature lets you send and receive files directly between 2 computers without the use of an intermediary service. This is compatible with many other popular instant messaging applications including Messages, Adium, and Pidgin. When Direct Connection is not supported — or you want a more organized approach to managing your files — the first class CloudApp and Droplr support have you covered.
