When there’s a channel for everything going on at your company, everyone knows exactly where to go to get work done.
Chat service for individuals, teams, organizations and even software.
Dreaded the news that Slack got acquired but so far so good. I have a team of nearly 40 people and Slack has nearly completely replaced phone meetings. I do think it can be very distracting if you are heads down and working... thoguh they have tools for that too. It is worth mentioning that with the free version you can't search for things in past chats. This is an absolute necessity for me, so I forked over the monthly fee. But for what you get, it's worth it.
Desktop/mobile apps are much better than web app version. Multiple channels are really confusing
Using Slack for over 8 years now. I have a small team and a Free plan is good enough for me. I did use some extra apps (by using zapier) to make it more effective but some are better than others.
There's plenty to love about Slack. The apps for it are ever-evolving.
How is the Android app? I use this mainly on Windows...
