Franz for Linux is a software that brings together different instant messaging services in a single interface, so the user can switch from one service to another very easily. Franz for Linux supports Facebook Messenger, Slack, Telegram, WhatsApp and more.
The Franz for Linux interface is intuitive, when you open it you need to create a custom user account in order to enter the software, and then you can connect to the various compatible messaging services. Please note that messages do not pass through Franz for Linuxs servers and are therefore not saved on their server. By adding these services, Franz for Linux only offers ease of use, and without compromising confidentiality.
For each service, the user is invited to enter the login details and access the discussions and contacts of the respective platforms. Franz for Linux offers the means to add new services through an extension system. The software also allows the synchronization of messages and conversations according to services and provides a system of sound and screen notifications.
We present the free version that provides the following services:
- Add up to 3 services
- Choose from over 70 services
- Account synchronization
- On-screen notifications
To benefit from more functions and features you can buy an upgrade license from the developer Franz for Linuxs website.

We recommend it, Franz for Linux, because in the field of instant messaging it is one of the most ambitious projects recently developed.
