Minnit’s overhaul is now live. Every page has been re-coded in a new language, the entire chatroom has been re-designed, and more.
A few things you might notice, is that photos you upload will now be much higher quality. The mobile version of the chat has also been completely redone from the ground-up. And we’ve made features more clear — instead of a bunch of icons, many of the items are now in the menu button, with clear text labeling. A lot of this couldn’t have been done without the suggestions and support from everyone who’s used Minnit thus far, so we thank you sincerely.
There are many other performance improvements under the hood, so we hope you like everything!

- Better chat listings
More chats are now shown on the homepage when logged in, and on the discover page. Pages are included so you can see all of the featured/popular chats.
- Improved image quality
Avatars and backgrounds will be compressed much less when uploaded, so your images will look better than ever. If you’ve already uploaded an image, you’ll need to reupload it so that it will be stored and shown in the higher quality.
- Forum added
We’ve added a brand new forum: forum.minnit.chat for you to post suggestions, promote your chat or just discuss any topic.
You’ll need to register a forum account before you can post.
We’ll be looking closely at the forum for suggestions on what to add next, so be sure to post there if you have any ideas!
- More payment methods added
A new payment method has been added to buy coins:
PaymentWall – Prepaid cards, bank transfers and more. Different payment methods will be shown depending on your location.
Edit: This payment method has been removed, however we have plans in the future to replace it with a new payment provider that offers even more payment methods.
Coins allow you to purchase smiley packs, chat upgrades and profile upgrades.

Simply go to edit chat and click on “Ranks List” and you’ll be able to add, remove or change ranks for any of the users on your chat.
