Share a link with a person without a Wire account to join a guest room conversation in my team

  • Updated

Invite people outside of your team or people who don't have a Wire account to join a group conversation with a link. Team members can create guest rooms on desktop or from their mobile devices, and share the link with the person or group they want to collaborate with. 

The guest can join the conversation on a desktop, but not on a mobile device.

Wire requires the latest version of Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Opera, or Firefox (no private browsing).

  7. Share the link with the people you want to add to the group conversation (for example via email or calendar invite).

When your guest clicks on the link on a mobile device he or she can either join the conversation in the app with their account directly or download the app.

When your guest clicks on the link on the desktop he or she can either join the conversation in the app with their account directly or in a browser or download the app.

If you invite people outside of your team with the link, a banner at the top of the conversation will appear stating GUESTS ARE PRESENT.

People without a Wire account are automatically removed from the group conversation after 24 hours. The link will be valid until it's revoked.

 

Revoke the link
