  • Plus, we’ve fixed some bugs and improved the performance.


25 June 2019 - SIMSme Business is now ginlo Business

And not only the name is new: The app, the Web Messenger as well as the Management Cockpit have been given a new look in the ginlo colors. In addition, the app comes with some nice usability improvements.
Everything else stays as it is: features, the technical platform, certificates, existing messages & contacts, and of course encryption, privacy & security. Have fun trying it out!


    Management Cockpit

    • Working with large user lists is getting more convenient: They load faster thanks to pagination and performance optimization.
    • Keep track of your users’ devices: Export a CSV list of the mobile and desktop devices registered for all managed accounts.
    • Plus: Some polishing touches to the user interface and a few bug fixes.

    ginlo @work

    30 April 2019 - ginlo @work Messenger App for Windows Version 1.6.0

    The Windows app comes with some more additional features and is now fully equivalent to the mobile app:

    • Upload your personal profile picture and show yourself from your best side in Windows as well.
    • Mute individual conversations if you don’t want to receive notifications for them.

    26 March 2019 - ginlo @work Messenger App for Windows Version 1.5.0

    • Stay on top of your messages even if the main ginlo @work window is closed: Now, the app continues running in the background and keeps you notified. And if you want to work undisturbed, you can of course also close it completely. Just right-click the ginlo @work icon in the notification area in the bottom right of your screen.
    • Conversations are marked as read as soon as you post a new message. Sounds reasonable, right? ;-)

    07 March 2019 - ginlo @work Messenger App for Windows Version 1.4.1

    • Stability improvements and minor bugfixes

    27 Feb 2019 - ginlo @work Messenger App for Windows Version 1.4.0

    This version has a lot in store for you:

    •  Add profile photos to groups for a more personal touch.
    •  Add an attachment via drag & drop, or by pasting it from the clipboard.
    • Start writing a message and continue later: What you’ve written is now saved as a draft.
    • Find unread messages easier thanks to visual indicators in your conversations.
    •  … and a lot of other improvements and fixes.

    Also new: In groups created as of now, the entire message history is visible to all participants – no matter when they’re added. Very useful, e.g. when new team members join an existing project.


    07 Feb 2019 - ginlo @work Messenger App for Windows Version 1.3.0

    This version of the messenger app for Windows makes quite a few things more convenient.

    • Updating to a new version: This one time you have to log in again after the update, then no more.
    • Starting the Windows messenger app: From now on, ginlo @work starts automatically when you boot your computer. (If you want, you can switch this off in “Settings > Startup”.)
    • Chatting in general: Because we ironed out a few bugs as well.

    19 Dec 2018 - ginlo @work Messenger App for Windows Version 1.2.0

    The messenger app for Windows can now be set up completely independently of the mobile app:

    • New users can activate their accounts directly in the Windows app.
    • Replacing devices isn’t a problem either: A user can create a backup of their personal key on their old PC and then use this backup to restore all their messages on the new PC.
    • And those who don’t have their own backups can ask their ginlo @work administrator for help: If needed, the admin can transfer the key directly to the new PC.
