New Feature For Freelancer Desktop App

Over the past year, the Freelancer Desktop App has helped many users like you by improving work transparency and establishing trust between freelancers and employers. It allowed freelancers to track & bill hours spent on a specific project, whilst providing employers proof of work with regular screenshots to ensure that they were getting the hours they paid for.

And now with the latest version of the app, you can also collaborate with your contacts through the app - thanks to the new chat feature.

The new chat feature makes it easy for freelancers and employers to connect with each other and discuss project details directly from the app.

In addition to the chat feature, users can also:

  • View contacts from the different ongoing projects they accepted
  • Download attachments

​All message and files sent from the Desktop App sync with your account - so they are instantly available on Freelancer.com and our mobile apps.

Design overhaul

The newly designed Freelancer Desktop App was created using JavaFX 8, the successor of the more famous and widely used Swing library, to give it a more modern look and feel.

The Desktop App is available for use in major operating systems like Windows, Mac, and major variants of Linux.
