There are numerous chat clients that support the Jabber/XMPP protocol used by NWSChat available for download or use in a web browser. Many of these chat clients are open source; others are proprietary and must be purchased.
Limited support for the following clients (click links for installation and configuration information) is provided:
- Pidgin (Windows and Linux)
- Adium (Macintosh)
- Jeti (multi-platform, Java-based)
- NWSChat Live (web browser based client)
For technical assistance with other chat clients, please consult the Web site for that particular client.
Some mobile devices, e.g. cell phone PDA's and BlackBerry's also support chat clients. While no support will be available for the mobile client software nor does the NOAA/National Weather Service endorse the following products, links are provided for informational purposes.
