Twist

There’s more to work than keeping up with group chat

Twist is the communication tool for teams who believe there’s more to work than keeping up with group chat apps.

Sam Rye- Founder
Pretty sure you were referring to Twist in your description. It's built by the team who built Todoist, so it also integrates nicely with that for task and/or project management. They wrote a take down on medium, about how and why Slack actually eats your life. Pretty compelling. I'm not sure how others who use Twist feel about the outcome of their work tho… See more

Twist is great, I've been testing it for a few months, and I absolutely love it! I was surprised how easy it was to switch to Twist. The team conversations seem very easy and well organised now. And yes, less distractful. Definitely worth trying. I'm a huge fun of what the Twist team is doing in terms of promoting more mindful team communication.

Houseparty

Group video chat on mobile

Gabriel Lewis- 🤔
House Party is one of the best ways to video chat with multiple people at once. It works incredibly well, and has a really fun, unique interface. The video quality is impressive. You can lock a "Room" to have only you and someone else, but you can have up to 8 people on the screen at once! Give it a try.
Dhananjay Yadav- Growth Hacking and Performance Marketing
Even I recommend Zoom for professional conferences but if you are looking for something more casual and fun than you might love Houseparty

Pop in the house and say hi to all your friends :)
