Almost every OSx Application has a service menú like this:

enter image description here

But I've found that my HipChat for MAC doesn't have. I don't know if there is a setting that will enable this menu or it is something related to the way the application was created.

Are you talking about the Services menu, or the group of options - hide, hide other, and show? – Undo Jun 4 '13 at 14:45
He speaks of Services. – Gnome child Jun 4 '13 at 22:38
Services, sorry the selected "Show All" could be confused in the screnshot but I am very specific about the Service Menu in the description, thanks – José F. Romaniello Jun 5 '13 at 15:52
Have you tried adding a Keyboard Shortcut for the application in System Preferences/Keyboard/Keyboard Shortcuts/Application Shortcuts ? Odd that HipChat didn't install any Services, I find every app I install is allowed to do so by default, and one must go find and uncheck them. Bad design, Apple. bad. – Zo219 Jun 7 '13 at 1:05

It has to do with the way the application is created. More about Services in Apple Developer Documentation.

I suggest you direct HipChat Devs to this page.
