Configure Message Settings

To change your chat window settings, you must first switch to the classic interface of the 8x8 Virtual Office desktop app. You can only access settings in the classic interface as a Virtual Office Classic user.

Note: Starting with version 6.0 of the Virtual Office desktop app, Classic Mode is no longer supported.

Note: As a user of version 5.9 or older of the Virtual Office desktop app, you can only access Classic Mode if your organization is a Virtual Office Classic customer. If your organization has requested to disable Classic Mode access (or is an X Series or Virtual Office Editions customer), Classic Mode is not available.

Note: Chat window settings only affect messaging in the classic interface.

To customize your chat experience as a Virtual Office Classic user:

  1. While using the new interface, go to More > Settings.
