Earlier this month, we reported that Facebook has started testing Workplace desktop app for Windows users. Blaise DiPersia, a product designer at Facebook, announced on Wednesday that the goal of the new look of the platform is to facilitate a better connection for every user of the Workplace by Facebook. For the unfamiliar, the Workplace is a #Social Networking Site designed especially for businesses and organizations to connect. Companies are able to use a combination of Workplace features including groups for teamwork, video for storytelling, and integrations like Box and Office365 for everyday work.

It would also bring interactive video chat session, as well as video conferencing. These organisations have used the platform to create more than 1m groups between them, and Facebook doesn't want them to stop their use of the platform there.
