Can I use other messaging platforms?

Focals use SMS for short and fast messaging so you can be social on-the-go.

We are looking to work with other messaging platforms in the future, but we have implemented a Slack ability that will let you see and reply to Slack direct messages on Focals.


If you're using an Android smartphone, you can reply to messages you receive from WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger on Focals, or use any Android Notification actions that are available for apps you use on your smartphone.

When you receive a message from one of these apps, go to your Notifications view and click the message to see reply options.
