Brosix Instant Messenger (IM) supports businesses to streamline and secure their team communication through private team communication networks. Brosix provides all of the necessary tools to increase team productivity in one user-friendly platform. The Brosix SaaS protects all employee communication using strong encryption, creating one secure network within a company. It provides multiple options to communicate effectively: chat, chatrooms, voice, and video calls – all the above available on a single platform. Among the main handy features are file transfers, screen sharing, and virtual whiteboard. It is worth mentioning that in 2017, Brosix Instant Messenger won the 2017 Rising Star Award and the Great User Experience Award. To put in a nutshell, this instant messaging platform is designed to improve team communication by introducing smart solutions and innovative features.

There is a standing QA joke about a significant misunderstanding of the “bug-free” software description. If the software is claiming to be “bug-free,” one should not expect it to be “free of bugs” but that the bugs are included free of charge. All jokes aside, our testers take their job very seriously to ensure that flaws are kept to a minimum.

At QAwerk, we advocate for a seamless user experience, so we launched the Bug Crawl initiative to tackle drawbacks that hinder smooth software performance. Read on to get more details on Brosix bugs that we found.

Brosix is a messaging platform, which has a lot of benefits, including but not limited to a user-friendly interface and encrypted communication channels. Brosix helps its users create their own private team network for text, video, audio, and file exchange. In general, the platform works very well. However, I came across several bugs that require immediate QA attention.
