Our early access phase is over, and Desktop.com has officially launched! Read our press release here.
Throughout this past year, we have been able to listen to your feedback, perform thorough testing and market exploration. This has now allowed us to bring it all together into the current version of the Desktop.com service - a service that connects the otherwise scattered dots of remote work by allowing you to keep and manage your teams, tools and communications all in one place.
Last month, we revealed the full HD video conferencing and voice calls and this month, we’re also excited to introduce Password Manager and group Chat, among other things.
New users who sign-up before March 31, 2021 receive 50% off the Pro plan for one year with promo code LAUNCH50.
Now, let's dive right in and explore what's new!
A Few Words From Our CEO
To learn more about the launch, the reasoning and the benefits, check out this letter from CEO Rolf Larsen!
In order to move seamlessly across tools and maintain focus and productivity, we’ve created Desktop.com Password Manager. Password Manager is available both in the Free and Pro plans.
The password manager will store all your app credentials under a single master password, allowing you to automatically login to your favorite services. Pro plan Admins will soon be able to share unified credentials with team members, making deployment of common resources a breeze.
The Desktop.com password manager uses the Zero Knowledge Protocol (ZKP) to keep client-server communication safe and encrypted. We also utilize Host-Proof Hosting (HPH), which puts encryption responsibility on the client side and prevents data breaches on the server side.
Our new chat functionality allows you to communicate with your contacts or groups across any type of device without installing anything - right in the context of your workspace or project.
Desktop.com chat supports three kinds of chats:
- One-on-one. Create a private chat with another user or even an external guest.
- Groups. Easily create a custom group chat with up to 250 users!
- Channel/All. Quick-start a chat with all members of a certain desktop through the channel chat.
You can now share files and links in a chat, mention someone to get their attention and react to messages with emojis.
