    Why they call it a desktop app if it's a Chrome extension?!

    Strange title of the article, it was already available for quite a while, but up till now it was only possible to link the Android version to it, now you can also link the iOS version.
    Yeah, it's a bit misleading. Also it's technically a Chrome app, not a Chrome extension. Since Chrome apps are going to be discontinued in the future, they'll hopefully launch a browser independent version.

    I guess it's only available for a MAC desktop.

    Well, Wire does this from any browser (actually it runs on a webpage).
