Signal has a new standalone desktop app and the Chrome App has been deprecated.
The new desktop app runs independently of your browser, eliminating the need to use Chrome.
“If you’re a Chrome user, having your browser open will no longer be synonymous with having Signal Desktop open,” it said.
If you’re using the Signal Desktop Chrome App, you can export your data and import it into the new Signal Desktop app.
Signal has launched Signal Desktop for:
- Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10.
- MacOS 10.9 and above.
- Linux distributions supporting APT, like Ubuntu or Debian.
