Now Testing: Wavebox Connect drop-in screen sharing, chat & calls.

Today we are delighted to announce the public preview of Wavebox Connect, a quick and easy drop-in communication channel that works across all your Wavebox apps. 💬☎️🎦📸

Wavebox Connect sits securely in our Chromium browser. It's an overarching tool that will enhance your daily SaaS workflow with simple 1-on-1 or group connections. It facilitates quick and easy chat, audio/video calling, and screen/file sharing between Wavebox users.

With no need for meeting links or codes, you can click and connect with another WB user in seconds.

Wavebox Connect enables regular interaction between people who share workflows and work across the same web tools every day. With Connect, you can quickly see who is online, what they are working on, and their availability for a chat or call. For example, if a co-worker is using Trello and their status set to 'available,' then you can DM them with an invite to go through a Trello board you've just created. Once a connection is active (call, audio, video), anyone who is part of that connection can; chat, switch to audio/video, share their screen, send a file, or send an invite to connect.

There are links to Connect throughout the Wavebox workspace, so you can contact a colleague in just a couple of clicks. The main Connect control panel displays to the right of the main window and is always visible as you work across your apps. The panel can be open/closed and popped out to reposition on your monitor. Via the panel you can:

  • See who is online, their status and send a quick DM.
  • Quickly make a 1-on-1 chat, audio or video call.
  • Start a group chat, audio or video meeting with multi-user controls.
  • Instantly share your screen, or any file, during any call.

Connect overarches all your apps, and is a great way to see who is online, check availability, jump on a chat or call, start a quick video meeting, and sharing your screen.

Help us test!

Wavebox remote workers are currently testing Wavebox Connect, and we are looking to expand this before the general release. If you'd like to help test, please fill out this form - you will need to switch to the beta channel when testing.

Wavebox Connect is an optional feature, so you don't have to use it, and is included in the existing Pro annual subscription.

Also note that (obviously) you will need other people to help you test Connect, and there is a simple invite process for you to do this. Following a successful Beta in May, we plan to release Wavebox Connect to stable in June. 🎉🙌
