Does the new browser extension work with the desktop app yet?

edited April 10 in 1Password in the Browser

It's my understanding that the browser extension, formally 1Password X, will work with the desktop app replacing the older version of the extension. This way the desktop app can authenticate the browser version so we don't have to keep signing in when the browser closes or use a secondary extension to keep Chrome open in the background.

Is this a thing yet? If not, do you know when or is it still TBD?

1Password Version: Not Provided

    I love everything about 1password except the fact that I cannot use the desktop app with the new browser extension. And now that the old extension has been removed from the chrome web store, I'm about ready to choose another product. This problem has been hanging out for way too long.

    Not all of us are ok with having to sync our vaults to the 1password service. But I cannot give up the in-browser functionality either.

    Is there any time estimate on when the desktop app might work with the new extension (without the need for the cloud service)? Is that even officially on the roadmap?

    We don't have a time estimate yet, but our developers are working on it ;)

    Temporarily removing Desktop App Integration

    In the meantime, you can always download the classic extension from here, should you need it:

    Get the 1Password classic extension

  • It seems not very high priority, given the linked thread is soon 1 year old. That's not "temporarily". It's a bit disheartening to see Windows looks like a second class platform for 1Password. I noticed too late the major userbase is on Mac (where this integration seems to be present all along).
    I tried the classic extension, but the actual process of autofilling isn't as integrated with it as with the new extension, so i rather go with the new extension.

    I am afraid in this case not even Mac users can benefit from this: the feature is within the extension itself, so it does not change what platform you use the extension on :( But I agree, hopefully our developers will be able to add it back soon :+1:
