Our Desktop App helps make Fellow even more accessible and convenient to use.

You will stay logged in and you won't have to search for Fellow across your browser tabs. And if you have an idea, you can jot it down directly in the desktop app (especially useful if you keep it open all the time)

Download the App

Please, remember that the current minimum supported version of the desktop app is 1.4.27.

How the Desktop App Works

Tray App

Click the Fellow icon in the menu bar to view the tray app.

This app shows you a condensed Fellow view so you can quickly join upcoming meetings, add action items, and view your schedule.

If you Enable Menu Bar Text you'll also see a reminder/countdown for your next meeting

Companion mode

Companion mode is a condensed floating view of the desktop app that accompanies you throughout your meetings or just on your desktop. For video conferencing calls, companion mode can be enabled for Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Skype for Business and Others.

Companion mode can be configured by going to User settings in the Desktop App and select Desktop App from the list.

Switch Workspaces

If you have more than one Fellow workspace, quickly switch between those workspace using the Switch Workspaces option in the menu bar.

Connected to Wifi

Our desktop app works with Wifi and is not available for offline use. Think of it as an embedded web app available on the desktop. Fellow uses the wifi to update any changes, connect to your calendar and continuously autosave notes.

You can tell if notes are being saved by checking the lightning bolt icon at the bottom right-hand corner of the note. It will change to red if it's not saving. As long as you're connected to wifi, you should see a blue checkmark that indicates all changes have been saved.
