Latest news about Convo
2015. Enterprise social network Convo released new mobile apps
A week after launching new web and Mac desktop applications, collaboration service Convo is releasing new versions of its mobile apps as well. The apps have been redesigned to reflect the same new look as the desktop apps. Other additions include an instant search capability, with results appearing as you type, improved sharing and a new in-app notification center. CEO Faizan Buzdar has said that the relaunches reflect an attempt to rebuild Convo “from the ground up,” and that the company would be bringing these changes to all its platforms.
2015. Collaboration service Convo unveiled new Web and Mac apps
Real-time collaboration service Convo is unveiling a redesigned web application, and a new desktop Mac application. The new interface might not look dramatically different to its users — it’s still the same interface where you can post messages, form different groups and share content. But the backend has changed significantly. For one thing, the speed of notifications and updates has supposedly improved by 3x. For another, the web app no longer uses Adobe’s Flash or AIR technology. Other new features include a vastly expanded selection of integrations that allow users to automatically post content from services like Gmail, Salesforce and Twitter. While Convo previously supported integrations through its API, the company has now gone out and built 200 integrations on its own. (To do this, it took advantage of web automation service Zapier, so you’ll need a Zapier account to take advantage of the integrations.) Similar updates will soon also come to Convo Windows app.
2014. Enterprise social network Convo adds chat to iPhone and Android
Enterprise social network Convo has finally brought chat from its desktop and web apps to mobile. Today, the company is rolling out a new version of its app for iOS and Android that significantly changes its look while bringing real-time chat to its users when they aren’t sitting at their desks. The new Convo Chat is exactly what you would expect from an enterprise chat solution. The revamped solution is available on the web, desktop, and both major mobile platforms, and Convo promises that your messages will remain secure and that you can trust that messages sent from both desktop and mobile will show up in chat logs no matter which device you’re on.
2014. Convo adds GIF and in-stream Doc support
Convo, a social platform that lets workers post messages to and chat with others in their company in real time, has added support for GIFs and significantly improved document support. Users are now able to start highlighting and annotating certain passages in documents that they upload to Convo, viewing full files from within the app, and linking to files in the cloud via Dropbox and Box. The whole app is also speeding up in terms of how long it takes to a person to view images and files within the desktop and mobile apps. Convo competes with Yammer, Slack, Hipchat and some other enterprise social networks, that provide extensive real-time and mobile features.
