Today, we're making Chat generally available as a core G Suite service. From direct messages to group conversations, Chat helps teams collaborate easily and efficiently.
TechCrunch
Hangouts Chat, Google's take on modern workplace communication, is now generally available and is becoming a core part of G Suite. Hangouts Chat was first announced at Google I/O 2017, together with Hangouts Meet. While Meet went right into public availability, though, Chat went into an invite-only preview.

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.
GeekWire
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.
TechCrunch
Atlassian, the company behind popular tools like Jira, Trello and Bitbucket, has also long offered a team communications service in the form of HipChat.

¿A quién no le gusta su estúpido y sensual modo oscuro en una aplicación?. Cuando nuestros ojos se cansan de todo el blanco que solemos ver en la pantalla, viene bien tener la opción de cambiar la interfaz por algo menos brillante, y es así como muchas aplicaciones y sitios web han añadido ese tema oscuro a sus plataformas.
