Manage your Office 365 SMS chats on the go

With the YakChat mobile app you can start conversations on your Office 365 desktop and keep them going when you’re out and about. 

But don’t worry. You won’t have to remember yet another number. Simply text using the same virtual number that you use on your desktop.

Compliant mobile texting

Take the hassle out of compliance.

YakChat will store your texts securely in Microsoft Azure and make it easy for you to archive them as email. It has built-in offensive word-blocking functionality and controls the inclusion of sensitive personal data in messages.

One number, multiple applications

The YakChat service includes a dedicated number for each of your personal or shared inboxes. This gives you the flexibility to text across multiple business applications and devices. The number can be in your own local area code and is generated from our secure cloud message service within Microsoft Azure.
