The messaging application previously known as Emperor of Austria is now called Franz, in honor of Franz Joseph I of Austria, Emperor of Austria, King of Hungary, Croatia and Bohemia at the beginning of World War I.

An app compatible with different messaging and chat services

The most important thing about this application is that it's compatible with some of the most popular chat services at present, both for mobile platforms such as Android and iPhone, as well as desktop platforms like Mac and Windows:

  • Slack.
  • HipChat.
  • Facebook Messenger.
  • Telegram.
  • WhatsApp.
  • Google Hangouts.
  • Skype.
  • Grape.

A place from which you can control your messaging applications.

Franz offers us a bar from which we can access these services with a single click. On the bar in question, we can also see the notifications that we receive, working like a hub from which we can access them all.

Requirements and additional information:

  • Minimum operating system requirements: Mac OS X 10.9.
