About messages

The 8x8 Virtual Office desktop app enables you to send and receive messages via desktop or mobile with your colleagues or with external contacts. Do you want to make your messages more effective by attaching a file you are discussing, emphasize key parts of a message, or even take a particularly important conversation to the next level via 8x8 Video Meetings? Virtual Office messaging allows all of this, and more!

Note: The content in this guide refers to versions 6.9 and older of the Virtual Office desktop app. If you're using a version higher than 6.9, see our content for version 7.0 and onward!


Note: If your organization does not enable messaging in the Virtual Office desktop app, you do not have access to the messaging functionality.
