Using OneOffice Talk for communication and video calls


OneOffice Talk is a complete chatting and video-conferencing solution. It is built on the latest browser technologies to give you real-time video and audio from your guests.

A unique feature of Talk is that call links are permanent. You don't have to keep sending new links for every new call with the same group.

Talk is the most secure chatting and communication solution on the planet. It uses the same kind of end-to-end encryption as Signal and WhatsApp

A downside of end-to-end encryption is the CPU computational overhead. Unless you and your users have a really powerful computer, you cannot sustain calls with more than 5 - 6 users. You can either use the Webinar app or stick to Audio only.


You can securely receive and make Audio / Video calls from your mobile phone anytime, while having the confidence that your calls are securely routed through your own servers. We strongly recommend you install the OneOffice Meet app to stay in touch with your colleagues and partners.

You can download OneOffice Meet for iOS, Android and Huawei here.

On Desktop / Laptop we continue to recommend using the browser Web App as it leverages advanced technology in modern browsers while being more secure than any app you can install on Windows. You can access OneOffice Talk by clicking on the Talk icon in your top menu bar.


OneOffice Talk is the most secure Video, Audio and Chat app for your business. It leverages end-to-end encryption to make sure no one can eavesdrop on your conversations. Even Push Notifications are encrypted with end-to-end encryption.

End-to-End encryption means the encryption keys are generated on your device and not shared with us or anyone else. Effectively, this means no one can decrypt your data but you. You can find more information on security here (A recommended read if you are security-conscious).

State-of-the-Art Technology

OneOffice Talk uses WebRTC, which is the same technology used by Google Meet and Microsoft Teams, except we add strong encryption to the data stream.

  • It leverages the latest browser-based capabilities to give you a great user experience without installing any third-party applications.
  • It is by far the most efficient conferencing techology, allowing more attendees without interruptions or delays.

By running in the browser you can invite your guests without the hassle of having to install an application prior to the call. OneOffice Talk runs everywhere! Even on mobile.
