Facebook launches Workplace Chat app for desktop

Workplace Chat has always been available via mobile apps and in the browser on a PC, but now there's a fully-fledged desktop app for PC and Mac, something which has been on the wish-list of many for a while now. Building on the launch of the Workplace name and logo previous year, we're giving all our apps, across all platforms, a new, fresh, and consistent look and feel. Earlier this year, Microsoft launched its own version of workplace software called Microsoft Teams. Workplace Chat includes video chat with a coworker or group, screen sharing, and file sharing. This is something that has been a part of Microsoft Team since its launch in November 2016 and a feature on Slack since December 2016.

Facebook's Workplace service is expanding its chat feature. The original Work Chat apps have been revamped and transformed into Workplace Chat. This desktop app joins web and mobile clients.

Also, Workplace by Facebook now offers an improved way to read things on the platform, thanks to a slew of fresh updates including the bigger Like, Comment, and Share buttons, which means that it is now easier for you to tap on these buttons. There is also better experience with updated group bookmarks layout and an online indicator.

"With the desktop app, people can access the same great features of the mobile app directly from their desktop".

Some of them include Walmart, Friendly Workshop, Heineken, Spotify, Lyft, and Reliance Group.

No less than a million plus groups have been created on Workplace to date.
