Sometimes, a group chat can solve a problem or brainstorm an idea much more quickly than scheduling a formal meeting. Other times, you’re engaged with a customer and can’t interrupt the conversation to get more info. As one of our customers—an insurance agent—recently put it, “Being able to chat with my office staff while I am with a client is great!”

That’s why 8x8 has added new group chat and chat spell check capabilities to Virtual Office Desktop and Virtual Office Online. In addition, Virtual Office Desktop has an improved interface that’s easier on the eyes.
