Most bulky App

Cliq being the most bulky app i have ever used. It get's stuck every now and then. The developer has no intention to update it. Even though it says an app but it is just a wrapper of web app. They're trying to compete with Slack & Microsoft Teams but they're yet to maintain the quality like them.

Developer Response ,

Sorry to hear this! We would suggest you to kindly update your Cliq desktop application to the latest version(1.4.6) and do let us know if you still experience the same issue by dropping an email to

Mic switching issues and others...

This would be a great app. It feels like a cheap knockoff of Discord and Slack.

On a mac with mutiple displays there are several issues.

1. When you are in a call, the audio will switch between your different screens randomly. If you try to set the output to your headphones, it crashes.
2. When you are writing a message, if you use an @person symbol and hit tab to have it automatically fill out the rest of the person's name, the screen switches to another tab instead of auto-filling their name.
3. It uses @participants to ping everyone in a chat instead of @everyone
4. The settings page is sub-par. You cannot manage your audio settings or your video settings from there.
5. When you start a conversation with somone, their name disappears from your list of contacts.
6. Screensharing often crashes the app.

Stop the bouncing icon

None of my other apps do this when I receive a message. There is no reason for this at all.

Developer Response ,

Hi Wary, we have provided an option to uncheck the "bounce dock icon" in our latest app update, you need to right click on the app icon from the dock and uncheck the option. Kindly update to our latest desktop application(Version 1.4.5).
