Signal Desktop is now available in a new, standalone form, and the Chrome App has been deprecated.
The new desktop version of Signal runs independently of your browser. If you’re a Firefox or Safari user, you don’t need to install Chrome to send and receive Signal messages on your computer. If you’re a Chrome user, having your browser open will no longer be synonymous with having Signal Desktop open.
We are launching our standalone app with support for these platforms:
- Windows 64-bit: 7, 8, 8.1 and 10
- MacOS 10.9 and above
- Linux distributions supporting APT, like Ubuntu or Debian
