Wire, the text, audio and video communication app that first launched in late 2014, has now released a dedicated app for Windows desktop owners. Wire, which is backed by Skype co-founder Janus Friis, was previously released for Android, iOS and OS X, and is also available via web browsers.
Wire says that the new app works with Windows 7, 8 and 10. All chats made with the Windows desktop version are synced up with all the other versions of the app. Here are just some of its features:
- End-to-end encrypted HD calls – in stereo with groups
- Beautiful conversations with high resolution photos and GIFs
- YouTube, Spotify, SoundCloud and Vimeo content right inside the chats
- Group chats with up to 128 people
Windows Central asked the company if Wire is also planning to develop a universal Windows 10 version of the app. Here is the company's response via a spokesperson:
