These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine approximately where you are.

precise location (GPS and network-based)
Allows the app to get your precise location using the Global Positioning System (GPS) or network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi.

    For those who are stucked with the never ending loop of single log in. Follow this simple trick. After you are able to sign in and authenticate your email and says open with App. Click on open with App and if the loop of open with App still coming on, just copy the link to another browser. For instance, if you are using Opera initially, just copy and paste the link on the opera to Google Chrome and you can then have the option of open with the App itself. I hope this help someone

    Several importan things for chat apps happened: 1. Notification did not appear once message come in. How this most important thing for chat apps did not cover? 2. Once I open the apps, the red bullet in chat appears, but it triggered so long for showing the chat. Come on facebook! I believe you can solve this for better business needs.

  3. Kern O'Riordan-avatar

    I can't even sign in because the app doesn't accept the apostrophe in my email despite the website accepting that very same format. Please review the punctuation that is permissible in the user subject field please and allow the use of apostrophe in the app. Thanks

  4. Armand Peens-avatar

    App won't open after single sign on. Open with app button in web browser does nothing after single sign on. Even after factory resetting my phone it didn't help nor work. I started facing the issue after I signed our of all my sessions in the Facebook app for some reason it signed me out of Workplace as well and since then I had been experiencing this issue.

  5. Fitness & Motivation-avatar

    I had an genuine issue of app not opening after single sign-on. Facing this issue since 15 to 20 days. Have written on the support email id but, no revert. I think though the email id for support is mentioned but, there is no one to read and respond.

  6. Kyle Ofrecio-avatar

    Not compatible with S20 Ultra. Doesn't open the app msgs. There just this screen that is there all the time. Reinstalling doesn't help. FB messenger though functions normally as expected but not Workplace chat. (Sigh)

  28. K. Williamson-avatar

    It was fine for the past two months and now Everytime I go to open the app it is lagging a lot and then it will ask me if I want to wait or close the app. And the thing is I really need this app for GSS.

  29. David Ford-avatar

    This app doesn't work on mine or my colleagues oppo Reno 2. Will not allow us to log into the chat app, keeps cycling between browsers and won't allow verification to take place.

  30. Tom Cartwright-avatar

    Workchat now has the same notification as FB Messenger, which means my work notifications are always mixed up with my personal accounts. This is very annoying, please fix this.

  40. Pratik Goyal-avatar

    Pathetic experience of work chat app. 1 voice quality is very poor with high speed internet during group calls. 2. Self voice echo most of the time. 3. Consuming too much storage space in mobile. I saw 22 GB use by the app data. Without sharing any image and video on the chats.

    The worst community app ever. Pay money for worst app instead of better free app?

  42. Joel Birch-avatar

    This app locks up my google slate. Chat works but then, for no reason the app will not minimize and is always on top. There is also no way to close it. I have to restart inorder to make it go away.

    notify icon on status bar is identity with fb messenger, make confuse

  47. ИВАЙЛО ПЕНКОВ-avatar



    Great app. Unfortunately, I am unable to install it, because I am using my old phone (5.0 lollipop). As I understood from articles I read, older os are no longer supported.

  48. morning star-avatar

    This app is trash! I never get my notifications and my work primarily uses this ****show of an app to communicate for some stupid reason.

  49. Frans Limz-avatar

    After last week update, apps keep closing by itself. I removed and reinstall, now can't login at all. Tap open apps, only see white screen, and logo, thrn black screen and close by itself. Can you fix this urgently?

    I don't get why the app has to rename document names to orca***** to make things even more confusing

  52. Henry Wǔ-avatar

    Should have a dark mode interface. It is better for users eyes.

    The message notifications are worst. They are very feeble and sometimes doesn't even give a beef after receiving a message.

  54. Husnina Hairu-avatar

    Not compatible with Oppo Reno 2. Unable to open and just stuck at 1 page after keyed in email add. Please make convenient to use in mobile

  55. Eleni Design-avatar

    Does not work. Does not allow Invitations to coworkers. Honestly I own a business and previously worked as a receptionist something this simple should not be so hard. and who in the world is going to spend days trying to get an app to work when you run a business and have a million other things to do. No one. Get a other app. Literally save yourself time with messing with this.

  56. David Lauzurique-avatar

    David Lauzurique


    Forced to use his for work, and have no issues other than 1) I wish I could disable on screen notifications. I have when I'm on my phone watching videos I get pop ups on my screen of new messages. Wish I could disable that. 2) EVERYTIME I mute a chat or turn in do not disturb, I still get notifications. It's like what's the point? It takes me about 5 times before it actually mutes the chat

  57. Marvin Jason Sy-avatar

    Marvin Jason Sy


    For some reason, notification sounds keep changing; from being set to "Work chat", it keeps getting reset to a sound file named after a series of numbers. (12345123 something like that). Not sure if this happens whenever the app updates. Nonetheless, still a good app to chat with for work matters.

  58. Kirill Shilov-avatar

    1) The relationships between chat app and the main workplace app are quite confusing... Using some chat app functions ("posts" for example) you are getting forwarded to the main app or website, with no way back. 2) There is NO search option inside the chat, which makes app completely unusable for the moment. Hope all this will be resolved in the future.

  59. Edmund Ngan-avatar

    No new notification chat head pop up even my setting for "Notifications and sounds" is "on", I had missed so many new messages. New messages will only come in when i open the app and it slowly show in the chat list. Workplace chat, please do something on this. Do something like facebook messenger, I have no problem with facebook messenger for new messages come in, immediately it will pop up for notification.

  60. Burak Çalık-avatar

    Norifications doesn't arrive while the app is not working in background. It must use Firebase Cloud Messaging to send/receive notifications, otherwise you can't keep the service running in background, and notifications won't arrive. Since this is a work application, reliability is the most important thing.

  61. Matthew Bedford-avatar

    Matthew Bedford


    App routinely stops displaying new messages and I have to force close the app to load new messages. I'll get notifications of the new messages, and sometimes when the problem starts I'll see the new messages briefly, then the list reloads and the new messages I was notified of will disappear and the conversation will appear to be stopped at some recent point in the past. This has gone one since I first installed the app a month or so ago.

  62. Vasuki Priya B-avatar

    The app is so good, i can contact or chat with my office colleagues here anytime. But the only problem i have with this app is it always shows waiting for network in the top, also when my net is ON. All my other app's will be running but this app shows no network and my messages will be lately delivered and received. If you can fix this it will be grateful.

  65. Shlim S-avatar

    I absolutley hate that you guys updated your workchat symbol for the notifications bar. You made it look exactly like messenger and now I can't tell it apart whether if its workchat or messenger.

  66. James Bennett-avatar

    If you're going to be disguised as Facebook messenger clone, at least include .nomedia for the sticker folder. Very annoying. EDIT: App consistently freezes and crashes after the recent update. Still no .nomedia either. *slow clap*

  67. Alvin Pang-avatar

    While I have figured out how to disable chat heads, I'm still not giving this more than 2 stars. If I have to dig around outside of the app to turn something off, it's bad design in my book.

    I really love this app, it made my work easier and stay connected all the time. But from past few days we're not able to send messages from the phone. Can you please fix this thing ASAP.

    No chat head features

  70. Thomas-avatar

    Ridiculous battery hog. Often drains battery unless I remember to manually kill it and Workplace (which seems to keep WorkChat alive). I even enabled restricted background battery and it is still heavy on my 🔋.

  71. Lucas-avatar

    notifications on this app are a mess. i have unselected all notifications yet they continue to come. I've also tried to disable the "bubble" notification and still i continue to get it. if i wasn't required to have this app i wouldnt touch it.

  72. Alcino Van Rooyen-avatar

    Alcino Van Rooyen


    Bad, can not upload any other files except images, and chat sync between pc and mobile is delayed. Can not type shortcode for emoji, can not search message history, code snippets are a mess, I would not recommend this app in any workplace.

  73. Elie Hirschman-avatar

    I had to dig down very far in my phone's settings to find the permissions to allow notifications for this app. Seems to me it should be easier than that. Otherwise, works fine.

  74. Andrei Dorofei-avatar

    It says it would redirect me to single sign-on of my company but never redirects... Used to work but not after few recent updates... Cannot use it anymore, have to resort to checking messages on the web browser in my phone instead...

    Raymark Salazar


    It's great app. But i think it would be better if i can use this app without an internet promo, just like the facebook messenger app. That would be helpful.

  76. Vasyl Butov-avatar

    It blows my mind that you have to download 2 apps to use same service. Functionality is not even near to Slack. This workplace is garbage

  77. YY ST-avatar

    Don't create another useless app to msg. Just let us msg directly to each other in workplace. Unnecessary clutter to the phone screen.

  78. Mitch Diaz-avatar

    Need to be workplace notifications icons that come up not facebook

    last version is broken... again. sound cuts-off once every second. nothing is wrong with the network. phones with older versions work

  80. Eon Drache-avatar

    seems to be no way to mute the chat on my days off. It's required, otherwise I would never touch this horrendous garbage.

  81. Frank Schehr-avatar
