New : Bistri introducing the Gallery
Since we launched the private sharing functionality 5 months ago, you probably tried several times to find a picture or a document that you received or sent…
With Bistri, you can share any type of file up to 100 Mb (images, videos, music etc…), with multiple contacts.
From now on, you can visualize all the files shared with your contacts in a gallery of medias. The gallery is showing you all the files you sent or received via Bistri.
The gallery is always accessible with a simple click on this icon in the website header (or in the menu on Bistri mobile application) :
Once inside the gallery, you can filter it to see only the photos or the files shared.
Just click on an image or on a file icon to view it in big and/or download it.
It’s now super easy to see all your files in one place !
We are planning even more features to keep improving your experience with the gallery of shared medias :
- forwarding a file to new contact(s)
- viewing the comments made on a file and adding your own comments
Stay tuned !
Sending files to multiple contacts now available
You may have noticed one big change on your Bistri homepage today !
You can now send a file to several contacts in one click !
- Just select a file on your computer with the “Select” button,
- Add a comment or description,
- Enter the name or email addresses of your recipients,
- Click “Send”!
It’s that easy to share something with Bistri !
The recipients can be :
- from Bistri,
- from one of your connected external account (such as Facebook, Gmail etc…),
- or someone outside Bistri : just enter manually their email address.
Tip : You can send any type of files : picture, video, music…as long as it is less than 100 Mb.
New release : file sharing on Bistri
A new release means a new feature, and we are proud to deliver a new functionality that allows you to share files through Bistri.
How can I share a file ?
During a conversation on Bistri, you can simply click on the «send file» button at the bottom right of the chat and select a file on your computer.
A link will be automatically shared with your callee, allowing him to visualize the file you are sending in a new window in his browser.
What can I share ?
You can share any types of files on Bistri (images, documents…).
The only prerequisite is that the file can’t be larger than 10 Mb (for now…)
Send your file to anybody !
- copy/paste the link anywhere
- works with your social/IM contacts (Facebook, Yahoo Messenger, Live Messenger, XMPP, etc…)
Even if your contact is offline, he will be notified by email that you’ve tryed to reach him. As soon as he is back on Bistri, he can download your file (24h max after your upload it).
