Grape 2.5 for Android is out

By 17. February 2016

For the latest Android release of Grape, we’ve taken all the precious feedback that we received in the last few weeks and worked on it to release the best version of the app yet. Here’s an overview of the most important changes introduced in Grape 2.5.

The All New Message Box

You asked for it and here it is: more space for the text message being typed in, as well as faster access to camera, gallery and file attachments. Communicating with Grape is now faster than ever.


Supports Compact View

The Compact View that a lot of you use and love on the web version of Grape is now available on Android; the perfect treat for those of you who just want to see as many messages as possible on the screen. Try it out by going to the Settings menu and enabling it from there.

Share images and text from other Android apps

Whether you’re viewing an image in another app or reading an article, sharing content with your teammates is now as easy and fast as you would expect on Android. Look out for Grape in the list of apps that will appear in the ‘Share’ menu of other apps!

Two-step Verification

We further increased the security of your Grape account by offering two-step verification. Most people only have one layer – their password – to protect their account. With 2-Step Verification, if a bad guy hacks through your password layer, he’ll still need your phone or Security Key to get into your account.

Featuring Grape Search

Searching for files, issues, GIFs and other service integrations is now faster than ever with the option to filter by services. Check out all the services you or your teammates integrated and discover the great potential of the SmartComplete.

Shared Files

Just like on web and iOS, the newly added Shared Files enables you to quickly access all kind of pictures and files that have been shared within a conversation. Make them available offline and open them directly in your favorite applications whenever you need them.


This release of Grape is the product of your invaluable feedback, so as usual please let us know what you think by email or by pressing on “Send feedback” in the app itself.
