We have been planning to have a major update on our Android app since last Spring, and we have released the new version as of today!
In this update, we have redesigned UI and increased stability for better experience. We have also made a lot of other improvements so please try it out yourself!
Simplified Interface Design
We considered the basic usability of android devices, and applied simple and usable design to provide a better experience of using ChatWork on your android devices.
By tapping the three line menu navicon, you can easily access to “Chat”, “Tasks”, and “Contacts”.
You will find the plus icon on every chat room, and you can send messages, create tasks, and share files through the plus icon.
Also, now we support the landscape orientation that had been frequently requested, so you can comfortably use ChatWork in landscape mode for writing messages or checking the documents.
Easily Add Contacts
For those of you who have had a hard time to add contacts without knowing their email addresses, with our new Android app, you are enabled to find a contact with their “name” and “ChatWork ID”.
New Video/Voice Messaging Feature
The update brings the ability to record video and voice messages and share it from right within the app. By sharing the information with video and voice messages, you can communicate more clearly with your teammembers. It is a great way to communicate if you do not want to type a long text message.
We also started supporting Android 5.0, and the app can be downloded/updated from the following link, so please try it out!
We are planning to have a major update for iOS app next Spring. We will keep putting our effort to improve our service and provide the best user experience. Thank you for your continual use of ChatWork.
【Important Note】 ※Devices with Android version prior to 4.0.3 will not be supported by this update. We will no longer support devices with Android version prior to 4.0.3.
