One of the things we’ve heard these past few months from people is the desire for a Windows and a web-based version of Wire.
Today, we are introducing Wire for web. It extends our existing iOS, Android, and OS X product line to millions of desktop users worldwide, including those on Windows and Linux devices. For people using desktops at work, school, and at home, Wire is now just a click away.
Wire for web looks and performs a lot like Wire’s iOS, Android and OS X apps — bridging a design gap often found between browser and native versions.
Wire is fully compatible with the emerging standard for real time media in browsers (known as WebRTC). This means high definition calling is possible for people using Wire on a browser without software installation, plug-ins, or Flash.
Wire for web is available at app.wire.com.
People already using Wire can log into their Wire accounts, and continue their conversations immediately.
People new to Wire can also create an account. The latest version of Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge, or Opera is required. The full functionality, including conference calls, work just like on mobile and in desktop apps.
We hope you enjoy it and, as always, we are eager to hear your feedback.
