Tapchat: Brings Back the Richness of Face-to-face Communication in a Virtual Office

Cubo writersOct 11, 2022

The influence of virtual communication is presented in every area of our life, and it has become a vital tool to keep people connected. But there is another side of the coin: the complexity of this communication.

Virtual communication can be confusing and produce undesired results if it is not transmitted by the right tools.

For example, talking with a colleague via sending back-and-forth emails can make you feel confused about what the other person actually means. You are unclear on his/her message, the task, and what is required from you. This way you keep expanding the confusion by responding to an unclear message. Using other platforms or even social media apps can make matters even worse.

New problems require new and instant solutions, that’s why we were inspired to create “Tapchat.”

Tapchat is a unique feature of our virtual office platform that takes back all the elements of in-person communication such as body language, tone of voice, and coherent talk.

In other words, Tapchat brings back the richness of face-to-face communication in a virtual office.

But how to use Tapchat?

Tapchat is easier than you think! You have to follow only 2 steps:
