You know Nextcloud Talk for video calls, chats with colleagues and web conferencing. But did you know about:
1. Links transform to widgets
In your Talk chats, sent links instantly transform into widgets that provide a rich view of what you sent. This can be webpage previews, videos, documents, Deck cards and more. They’re much gentler on the eye and pop out so you won’t miss another link or task again.
Watch our recording “Overview of Nextcloud Talk” to learn more about the full potential of Nextcloud Talk!
In today’s digital reality, there’s countless distractions coming in from all directions keeping you away from the actual work you need to do, as well as creating an overwhelming work environment. While keeping your mental health in mind, we have a few options for you:
Select call notifications – If you want to start a call within a big group chat but only need to notify a few people, you can select participants individually and send them a call notification. This avoids disturbing others who don’t need to join.
2. Send a message without a notification – Sometimes messages aren’t urgent, and you don’t want to disturb a colleague.
3. ⛔ Do-not-disturb button ⛔ – Everyone needs one of these! In your Nextcloud settings, automatically enable a do-not-disturb option outside of the working hours you choose.

In your Talk chat’s settings, you can enable message expiration for 1 hour, 8 hours, 1 day, 1 week or 4 weeks. This is a great option if you would like all messages in a chat to be deleted after a certain period of time for:
🔏 Confidential conversations
🌞 Everyday, informal conversations that aren’t important
📽️ Short-term projects
Overall, the message expiration option acts as an “automatic” clean-up for messages in a chat, however you always have the choice to manually delete entire messages or delete the chat itself.
5. Integrates with Deck and Office
Since Nextcloud is an all-in-one collaboration platform, our goal is to deeply integrate our apps with each other so you can work more efficiently in one place. For instance, if you’re working in Deck and want to share a card with a colleague right there and then, you simply click “post to a conversation” and it will instantly be posted to a Talk chat of your choice and show up as a widget.
Did you know you can create a new file, spreadsheet or presentation right within your chat?
Say you’re messaging your manager who is talking about a new strategy and you get a great idea. Before you forget your thought, quickly open a new text file within your chat and jot down your notes. Efficient and simple.
