    Voxer, a popular messaging and walkie-talkie service, has added a Web-based app for business users to complement its existing iOS and Android apps.

    The Web app, which is basically a substitute for a desktop client, provides access to multiple chats on one screen — supporting push-to-talk voice, text and multimedia messages — and lets users to listen in on real-time chat conversations, with support for wired headsets. The Voxer business service is priced at $4.95 per user/per month for businesses, although that price will increase to $9.95 per user/per month from January 2014.

    I’ve said before that adding a desktop client is smart for messaging, and that’s particularly true when your core audience is business users since it helps keep teams connected conveniently during the working day, when desktops are often the primary device. Voxer highlights the example of mini-cab and taxi firms, for example.

    Voxer also offers a free version of its service for consumers — which includes a Windows Phone application that is not supported by the business plan.
