Can I connect to other messengers like ICQ?

For security reasons Brosix application uses a proprietary protocol. This protocol is used for Brosix-to-Brosix communication.

To allow our customers connect to other IM networks, Brosix desktop application can connect to ICQ messaging network.

Brosix Mobile versions (Android and iOS), as well as Brosix Web Client, cannot communicate with other IM networks. This features is available only with Brosix Desktop (Windows, Mac and Linux).

When Brosix is connected to any of these IM networks, it allows only text chat. All other Brosix features are available in Brosix-to-Brosix communication when users use Brosix accounts.
