I`m searching for a simple chat client for Mac OS X:


  • It should be possible to pin the chat window to the foreground, so it is in front of alle other windows
  • It should show those alerts on the screen if a new message arrived
  • Login should be saved, so it is easy to start it every morning and keeping it up the whole day

Background: In my company, we need a chat to check with less affort if somebody is available or talk about simple things like: "i`m ready with the task" without changing the room physically :)

Thank you!


I recommend Slack, it's a chat app for teams. The desktop app also supports notifications!


Organize your team conversations in open channels. Make a channel for a project, a topic, a team, or anything—everyone has a transparent view of all that’s going on.

Private Channels

For sensitive information, create private channels and invite a few team members. No one else can see or join your private channels.

Direct Messages

To reach a colleague directly, send them a Direct Message. It's completely private and secure.
