Lua is built on the idea that providing employees with fast and efficient communication - wherever they are - is the best way to boost productivity and achieve business success. That's why we are excited to announce that Lua is now available as a desktop app for both Windows and Mac!
Having a dedicated Lua app on your desktop puts quick communication front and center at all times, outside the Web browser and other apps you might have open. This eliminates the distraction of having to check your phone while you're at your desk, or searching through browser windows to respond to a message. Communicating through Lua becomes one continuous experience through your day, from phone to desktop to phone again.
The desktop application has the same complete set of features you have come to expect from Lua on any platform. including secure messaging, an interactive directory and easy file-sharing, with enterprise-grade accountability embedded throughout the solution. Users with Admin privileges can review communication analytics on the Insights dashboard, and can streamline all management through the Admin Console.
Additional features of the desktop apps include:
- View real-time desktop notifications of incoming messages
- Drag and drop files to quickly add them as attachments
- Input special characters, emoji, and voice dictate your messages
Of course, Lua users can still log into Lua on the Web to communicate with coworkers. While a desktop app is great for your regular workstation, having access to Lua on the Web means you can log into Lua on any computer. You'll never feel disconnected, even if you don't have your computer with you - Lua users can truly communicate from any device, at any time.
Desktop apps are just one more way in which Lua is helping businesses maximize their employee’s productivity through secure and efficient messaging. So what are you waiting for? Download the app today.
