Facebook Workplace App available now for All

Buoyed by the positive response from over 1,000 companies that are currently using Workplace (formerly known as Facebook at Work), the company has announced to make the app available to all.

This means you can chat with a colleague across the world in real time, host a virtual brainstorm in a Group or follow along with your CEO's presentation on Facebook Live.

"People have created nearly 100,000 groups and the top five countries using Workplace are India, the US, Norway, UK and France," Facebook said in a statement on Tuesday.

"We're announcing that Workplace will now be available to any company or organization that wants to use it," it added.

Large multinational companies like Danone, Starbucks and Booking.com, international nonprofits such as Oxfam and regional leaders such as YES Bank in India and the Government Technology Agency of Singapore have all embraced Workplace.

"We've brought the best of Facebook to the Workplace a" whether it's basic infrastructure such as News Feed, or the ability to create and share in Groups or via chat, or useful features such as Live, Reactions, Search and Trending posts," the company said.

"We've also built unique, Workplace-only features that companies can benefit from such as a dashboard with analytics and integrations with single sign-on, in addition to identity providers that allow companies to more easily integrate Workplace with their existing IT systems," Facebook added.

The company also announced "Multi-Company Groups" - shared spaces that allow employees from different organizations to work together and extend collaboration beyond their companies in a safe and secure way.

"This will be rolling out to all customers in the coming weeks," Facebook said.

"Workplace will be priced competitively - companies only pay for people who are actively using the product," it added.
