Desktop Messenger Beta now available!

You can set your availability status or customize a message that will appear for other users.


Click on a name to open a chat window. You can have as many chat windows open as you like at one time. Type into the box to send an IM. We currently support only text chat.

System Tray

CometChat Desktop Messenger can be minimized to system tray so it sits there unobtrusively while you do other work. You will receive sound and visual notification when a new message arrives.

White-labelled (Branding free)

On purchase, the desktop messenger will be branded for your site (icon, logo and name) so that it becomes an integral offering of your site.
