IRC Bouncers

  • Stay connected to IRC chat when your device is offline
  • Play back missed messages when you connect
  • Access unlimited IRC chat networks (with bridges to Telegram or Discord)

It's free of charge running free software with real time support from IRCNow staff.

To get started with a free bouncer, connect to ircs://irc.ircnow.org/ and /join #ircnow. Then, type !bnc for a free bouncer.
