You may not know, but the social network Vkontakte has its own application for Mac, Windows and Linux – VK messenger. The creators position their program as an exclusively “messenger … for quick and convenient communication of people around the world.”

Application design VK messenger most identical to the section Messenger in the new interface of the web version, which is a definite plus.
VK Messenger interface is two-panel. All correspondence is displayed in the left side menu, the main window is displayed in the right side. Unfortunately, there is no section with contacts. You have to either use the search or scroll through the list manually, which is somewhat inconvenient, with a large number of friends.
There are no questions about the workspace, since this is a fully functional copy of the web interface with all even the smallest, but no less important goodies like search, marking important messages (there is a separate list), emoticons and so on.
There is support for group conversations, sending photos, documents, audio messages.
As well as video and audio calls.
If you turn to the profile information of the interlocutor, then there you can make an audio or video call, turn off notifications or use the search for all sent and received images, videos, audio recordings and documents, which is also convenient.
The developers did not forget about the ability to respond through system notifications. An incredibly handy item.
You can set the dark theme in the program settings:
Among other options in the settings, we should highlight the ability to change contact details, password, language, clear the cache (a rather useful option that developers for some reason often forget about and already have to wander through countless system folders to clean the client from garbage), set up notifications, keep
“black list” of users.
VK Messenger is a fairly stable client and can satisfy almost all user needs. And most importantly, it’s free.
