We released Anywhere Desktop 1.4.8 today.
The major focus of this release is to clean up our notification support on Windows. And while we made significant progress to fix Windows 7 (a majority of Anywhere installs), we had to remove two features. We fully intend for these to return, however, in order to move foward, we took an action that may appear as a step back for some of you.
- macOS notifications no longer support
Replydirectly in the notification itself. Click on the notification to open the Anywhere window to reply.
- Windows notifications no longer have contact or media image previews.
