We told you about Franz several weeks ago, an application created to have Slack, WhatsApp, WeChat, HipChat, Facebook Messenger, Telegram, Google Hangouts, GroupMe, Skype and other messaging services in the same app. Version 2.0 is now available, and it is also compatible with Linux and Windows, not just Mac.
The free application groups the channels that have a web version, and displays them in a single application so as not to depend on the current browser, although internally it uses the technology of a web browser to access said services. It is in fact a web browser specially designed for access to messaging applications, opening the online version that each one has, without the use of APIs, to have conversations in our day-to-day in one place.
There are 14 services offered by the app, as reported on its blog. They recently included WeChat, ChatWork, and are already celebrating 10,000 active users, a number achieved in just 26 days of life.
Although it is still a way to separate the tabs that we usually have open in our traditional browser, it helps to better classify the information, and it has an aesthetic specially designed for this type of use, with pending conversation counters in the upper section.
