Chat in Splashtop Remote Access Software

Send and receive text chat messages to the user on the remote computer

With the chat feature, you’ll be able to send and receive messages to a remote computer before, during, or after remote access sessions.

Once you start the chat session by sending a message, a chat window will pop up on the remote computer where the end-user will be able to see your message, and send messages back and forth with you. You’ll be able to chat with end-users while remotely accessing their computer. You can also initiate chat sessions with remote computers under your account even if you’re not in a remote access session.

All chat sessions are logged in the Splashtop web console.
