Facebook Introduces Workplace Chat Apps and Screensharing

Author at TechGenyz Facebook
FB Screensharing

Given a discovery of TechCrunch, Facebook has quietly introduced official chat apps and screensharing. These two features for desktop PC and Mac are the ones that users have been eagerly looking forward to.

Presently, the features are available only for Workplace. It is an enterprise collaboration software of Facebook and competes with other business apps like Slack.

Workplace comprises of more than 14,000 businesses on board, and one of the latest additions is the Wal-Mart. Screensharing is going to attract more clients for Workplace surpassing the similar but weaker feature of apps like WebEx and Skype.

This means that Facebook brings its rapid development nature for accumulating offices and providing them an all-in-one platform. This certainly seems to be progressive as compared to the competitors of the social media, who are providing ‘only one piece of the puzzle.’

The Screensharing feature

This feature is presently available on the web, and on the Workplace Chat desktop apps. You can share your full screen or a particular desktop app that you are going over. This will further take care of your privacy, while you do not wish to expose sensitive data.

This leads us to the fact that Facebook intends to keep your social network profile and Workplace in terms of privacy.

Facebook on Desktop Software

Among the Workplace help section, TechCrunch came across a download link for the beta version of chat desktop app. This is for both Mac and PC. This will help users message their colleagues comfortably, where they don’t have to depend on browser tabs anymore.

Vanessa Chan, the Workplace spokesperson, said that this feature was built for one of the widest requests from the users. Currently, the feature is in beta, and “being tested by Workplace customers who are providing feedback.” The feedback will lead Workplace to further develop the feature “before a wider rollout.”

The Workplace Chat website consists of a design as the same of Messenger.com. Now, while the Messenger team is focused on mobiles more than desktops, this earned it about 1.3 billion monthly users. Thusly, we expect the team to turn to and explore possibilities in desktop as well.

Summary

On the whole, the desktop software offers Workplace a specific spot on your computer. This helps you in sorting out your working attributes from your researches on the browser. This is so as you don’t have to look for chatting and screen sharing in your browser tabs.

Last but not the least, Facebook and its team at Workplace can foresee an ongoing consistent association. The workplace does not just target ‘traditional white-collar office employees’. The team aims at offering a communicative platform for every kind of employee of a company. Therefore, the desktop chat and screen share features seem to be an ideal beginning in enhancing convenience at work.
