In December 2015, Open Whisper Systems showcased “Signal for Desktops”, a private messaging app for users. They initially launched the beta version of the app only to a selected number of users. The company has now announced that the app is now available for all the users.
Signal is actually a Chrome app that works like an extension in the browser. It is used in Chrome to link to any Smartphone in order to display all the incoming and outgoing messages in all connected devices. The description of the app in all the platforms boasts itself as an end-to-end encrypted app with features to embed encryption on private group, video, image and text messages. The app is available to use for free and does not contain any advertisements in it.
The company said in a blog post, “We’ve refined the UI throughout the beta program to improve the look and feel of the app.”
