Can the message support Markdown?

As a developer, I'd like to use markdown as the text format, it's easy to use and powerful.

And the code block can be set language.

Hey Jim, 


Hipchat does not currently support markdown, though our new product Stride will be able to do this! If you haven't already, I would suggest signing up for our early access program. 

We are steadily inviting more and more people to test out Stride, and once accepted you would be able to give all the new features a spin. 


Thanks - 



Thanks for your reply, I've signed up, but has not gotten the invitation yet :(

Hey Jim! 


We know you're excited, and we're excited that you're excited! We're putting a LOT of love into Stride, and you will get your invite eventually!


We're continuing to invite more and more people into the early access program, so it will only be a matter of time :)
