Announcing Pesto mobile web support (early access)
I'm excited to share that we've launched Pesto mobile web support in early access. Now, you can hop into a Pesto room while you're on the go.
Note that early access means that the mobile web app is not considered stable, and you should continue to use the desktop app for the most stable possible experience.
Why Pesto mobile web?
We built Pesto mobile web to solve two of our biggest pieces of customer feedback.
#1: Users want to talk to co-workers while they are on the the go. This could be on a walk, in the airport, or just around the house.
#2: Users want to run Pesto on their tablet to the side of their desktop setup.
Why not a Pesto mobile app?
Frankly, this was a lot faster to implement. This web app uses the same code base as the desktop and web apps.
We still plan to offer a full app at some point. For now, you can install the Pesto mobile web app to your home screen, and we encourage you to do that for a close-to-native experience. See "How to use Pesto mobile" below.
Pesto mobile has the following features:
- Create / delete rooms and teams
- Manage members (invite / remove)
- Integrate services (calendar, Spotify, etc)
- Join a room
- Play trivia
- Turn on audio
- Turn on video
- View others' audio, video, or screenshare
Pragli mobile has the following limitations:
- "Closed door" only - no open door support for the time being
- No screen share (but can view others' screens)
- No "video avatar" support
- Limited to certain browsers (see below)
- (iOS) cannot be in a room with more than 4 people
- (Android) cannot be in a room with more than 12 people
Supported operating systems
With the launch of Pesto mobile, we support all of the follow operating systems.
Note: EA stands for early access, meaning it is actively being worked on and isn't considered stable.

How to use Pesto mobile
There are two ways to use Pesto on mobile: via an installed web app or in the mobile browser.
Pesto web app (recommended)
Navigate to pesto.app/signin on a mobile device, then choose "Install Pesto." Pesto will prompt you with instructions on how to install the web app.
Pesto web browser
Navigate to pesto.app/signin on a mobile device, then choose your sign in provider.
In the mobile layout (<820 px wide), we disable Intercom since it gets too big and annoying.
To give us feedback (feature requests, bug reports, or anything else), please send me an email at [email protected] or send us feedback through the support chat right in Pesto.
