Franz For Windows, Mac Offers 14 Messaging Services In One App

If you are anything like us – if you are reading this, you probably are – then you likely have multiple messenger accounts spread across multiple protocols. Whether you are using Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Google Hangouts or the ever popular Slack, having multiple apps and clients open all the time is no fun, especially when you have to switch between them constantly. Franz is a free app that might just offer a solution to this madness, and it can be downloaded now.

Available for Windows, Mac and Linux, Franz takes all of your instant messaging accounts and crams them into one app that keeps everything in the same place without the need to be constantly moving windows around in order to find that one conversation from last week.


The list of supported messaging services is a thorough one, with Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Hangouts, Skype, Slack and more, forming a grand total of 14 services, all supported right out of the box. If you use it, it’s probably supported. Here’s the full list of services supported by Franz.

  • Slack
  • HipChat
  • Facebook Messenger
  • Telegram
  • WhatsApp
  • WeChat
  • Google Hangouts
  • Skype
  • GroupMe
  • ChatWork
  • Gitter
  • Discord
  • Steam
  • Grape


What makes Franz so useful is users can even add multiple accounts per service, which is a wonderful addition for anyone who happens to run a company account as well as a personal one, for example.

Franz allows you to add each service many times. This makes Franz the perfect tool to manage multiple business and private accounts at the same time. You could even use five different Facebook Messenger accounts at once, if some inexplicable reason urges you to do so.

Cross-platform and free to download, Franz is one app that we think everyone could benefit from, and not just the power-user blogging types that you may think it would be of most use to.
