Hey, Chris!

Totally understand that! The multiple accounts feature is on our roadmap, but I cannot provide you an ETA for when it is going to be released.

Kind regards,

Dear Madame,

Do you have it in your roadmap ? When could you have it done in Windows or Android ?

We are now choosing a chat solution for 30-40 users and this has some importance for us.


Best regards,


Dear Madame,

I read

Can I have  a menu bar on left-side of the screen in the WEB APP much like in the mac app (see below) ?

To switch between browser tabs is much different than what you have done for mac.

Alternatively, do you have this option available for windows app ?

Best regards,

Hey, Gregory!

The scenario you are asking for is only present in the Mac client at the moment. It is different from the web app as you mentioned. And as for the Windows client, it is currently not available yet.

Hi Nagila,

are there any development in this case? Are there any plans for provident multi account support for Windows and Linux users? 

After more than a year this feature is not available on Linux. This is not fair. All of the clients should be the same.

Are there any updates on this?


Any updates on this? Having this only for mac smells.
