Office Chat 1.4.5 – General Availability Release

Office Chat, a simple and secure messaging platform for business teams allows coworkers to securely collaborate no matter where or how they work – no need to exchange numbers or friend anyone first.

We are pleased to announce the release of Office Chat 1.4.5 for mobile, desktop and Mac platforms which includes a variety of bug fixes and improvements. This release makes mobile messaging firewall friendly by sending and receiving messages over HTTPS (443). It also provides support for emoticons, allowing users to share their feelings and moods in messages, as well as an integrated spell check and improvements to user’s presence status. The full release notes with bug fixes and changes can be found below.
