Stride is a new way for teams to talk, meet, decide and do. With group chat & direct messaging, voice and video conferencing, and built-in collaboration tools, Stride is a team communication platform from the makers of Hipchat.

Stride by Atlassian seems to be an upcoming Slack competitor..

Atlasians Slack competitor.
One nice thing about the rise of design thinking within enterprise software has been the emergence of workplace tools that people actually like to use. The meteoric rise of Slack is one of the best examples of this, and now Atlassian, which has an extensive background in communication and project management tools, thinks it has come up with something better.
Atlassian, the company behind popular tools like Jira, Trello and Bitbucket, has also long offered a team communications service in the form of HipChat. Over the last few years, Slack has had an outsize influence on this space, though, and the Atlassian team decided to go back to the drawing board and see what its take on a Slack-like team workplace communic… See more
The Next Web
Atlassian today announced the launch of Stride - its new collaborative messaging platform that's unashamedly designed to take on the current incumbent, Slack. Stride works a lot like Slack. There are rooms, and you can have one-on-one conversations.
The Verge
Hipchat, the venerable team communication app owned by business software maker Atlassian, is making way for a sequel. The company today introduced Stride, which replicates the core of Hipchat while adding natively hosted audio and video meetings, task and decision tracking, and a "focus" mode that collects important notifications for you while you concentrat… See more

Cross posting from Hacker News: We are looking for feedback on the design of a new Mattermost "App Center" that we're building to eventually host 3rd party apps: It's a pretty raw document, and before it gets too polished, would love feedback from the community: Would you find this interface interesting for building 3rd … See more

Decentralised real time chat with video/voice, too. If you need true privacy, you can install your own node; otherwise, you can use theirs.

Real-time team messenger tool

Darryl Pinto
It does everything you'd want from a communication tool. Is simple to use and has a clean, intuitive interface. The best part, the premium plan is much more affordable than Slack. Besides, there's unlimited integrations on the free plan and comes with a powerful platform that enables building/integrating apps and services.
Setal Patel
Used it for a personal project with 7 users. While the basic one-one chat and group messaging was great, what really helped us was inbuilt video calling, to-do lists, notes, and file management. They have a bunch of 3rd party apps as well, but we didn't have a use for them. And it works across platforms, which is always nice.
Rajesh Pandurangan- Tech Enthusiast
This is a great tool for a product manager. This has to-do, voice, video calls, integrated with drives, their interface is different than that of their competitor and tried to cover as much as possible to make it more productive tool.

Anuj Verma- Building and designing products!
@robinraszka It would be great if there was killer answer, but quite simply I don't think there is one. We're in this for the long game. And though Slack is a clear early leader in team communication, things are just getting started. The vast majority of the world is still sending "Running late to the meeting " emails to their co-workers. Design philosophy… See more

Zenefits People

Find and connect with your co-workers instantly

Parker Conrad- Zenefits Cofounder
Hey guys -- few thoughts on this: One thing that's important here that people are missing is that b/c this (very simple but very useful IMHO) app is connected up to Zenefits, all your employee contact info is already in there. IE, when companies hire someone, they hire them through Zenefits -- and that new employee will automatically show up in the app. Whe… See more

Hey Product Hunters, I am the Founder and CEO of Slenke. We developed Slenke out of our own need. After getting tired of having to use 4 or 5 different products for daily day-day work.
