VSee New Release Version 3.2 – Send Images Through Chat

VSee api update releasePost updated: March 10th 2016 

This week, VSee released new versions for Windows, Mac, and Android. The iOS versions of this release will be coming soon.

For this release, we are very excited to announce our new HIPAA-compliant image transfer via chat. This will allow patients and providers to easily share photos and screenshots with each other even on mobile devices.

    VSee chats are always sent encrypted end-to-end.
    However, they are stored in clear text locally on your device(s), so you want to secure the device you use.

    Is there an option to clear chat from the WIndows Version? I think I found it in the mac version under “File > Delete Conversation” – is there a shortcut key or something to do it under windows? I’ve been looking for an hour and havent found anything. I tried CTRL+Backspace and CTRL+Delete (as well as CTRL+SHFT+___ and ALT+____) with no luck. I also checked “Edit Profile” but nothing was there..

    Unfortunately this feature has been removed after we took out the separate chat history button.
    We’re working to re-add this in a next release.
    You can delete _all_ history by going to your %appdata%/vsee folder and removing the chat history file.
