Facebook launches new Work Chat app

Work Chat 3

If your work uses Facebook at Work, you are in luck. Facebook has just released a new app to go along with it called Work Chat. The app is basically the same as Facebook Messenger only just for co-workers.

You can do things like send photos and videos, message people individually or in groups, includes free voice calls, and even lets you send stickers.

• Send a message to one of your coworkers or create a group chat with a few of them. With chat heads, you can keep up with the conversation while using other apps.
• See a directory of other employees and start new conversations easily.
• Turn off notifications when you’re on vacation or just don’t want to be disturbed.

It’s pretty basic, but it is the first version. We definitely expect Facebook to pack more features into it over the next year. Also, you must have a Facebook at Work account in order to use the app, but if you would like to try it out, you can always sign up now.
