Signal running on an iPad

Signal 3.0 is now available in the App Store:

  • iPad support has arrived. Set up your favorite tablet as a linked device.
  • Forward messages between threads. Editing support lets you amend, extend, append, explain what you intend, or tie up loose ends before you hit send.
  • Built-in support for video trimming can help any clip turn into a highlight.
  • Tap on someone‚Äôs avatar in a group conversation to quickly message or call them. While the group agonizes over dinner plans, subtly exert your influence by making a case for your favorite restaurant in one-on-one conversations.
  • Jump between threads and survey your message landscape (in landscape) with a horizontal inbox/conversation view on larger devices.

We would like to thank all of the alpha and beta users who helped us test and stabilize this release. If you want to get an early preview of new Signal features, you can join the beta community here.
