New Features: Communication Tools & a Global Search

January 18, 2021

Did you notice our new update to Desktop.com yet? We’ve now included new communication and global search tools.

With the new communication features, you can now chat with individuals or groups, and get on video and audio conferences with any team members you need. Our global search function also makes finding what you need faster and more effective. Let’s take a deeper look into what these new features can do for you.

New Features


Communication Tools

We have added a suite of new communication tools to the Desktop.com experience. With these new features you’ll now be able to instantly communicate with others right in the context of your workspace and relevant project. Now you can seamlessly connect with the person, or entire team, you need to at any time. These new communication features include:

  • Call: You can now enjoy crisp, full HD audio and video calls with any of your contacts.
  • Meet: Users who are on our free plan now have the capabilities of getting on video conferences with up to 5 participants. Users on our Pro plan can have video conferences of up to 25 members, all in full HD quality.
  • Chat: Chat one-on-one with your contacts or create a group chat with team members, or create a group from a specific desktop. The chat feature is currently in beta, and will be updated with more features for the next release, so keep an eye out and sign up to receive our Newsletter to be the first to know.

Our new state-of-the-art video call and conferencing tools will allow you to communicate with your contacts or groups across any type of device without installing anything. You can find any team member in an instant, and our video calls and meetings support industry standard features, such as in-app chat, screen sharing and moderator rights.

Global Search

Another feature we’ve included is the global search function. This feature allows you to search across all apps, links and chats that you can access in your workspace. Tired of scrolling to find the app you need? How about that link you can never quite remember where you placed it? Our global search feature makes hunting down any app, link or document a breeze, so you don’t have to waste any time finding what you need.
