Hangouts Chat is an intelligent and secure communications tool, built for teams. From direct messages to group conversations, Chat makes team communication easy and efficient. Rolling out for all G Suite customers over the next week.

Google
Teams want to be able to get their work done in one place, which is why we introduced the Early Adopter Program of Hangouts Chat to bring teams together. 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.

Google is releasing Hangouts Chat this week, a service that allows users to message each other privately or in groups, and work collaboratively on projects.

CNBC
Google on Wednesday said it will be making its team communication app for work available to customers of its G Suite portfolio of cloud productivity apps this week.

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. 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

macOS: Sure, Slack might be everyone's go-to workplace communication app, but that doesn't mean it's infallible (I won't even get started on @here). Take its bright white interface, for example.

¿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.

Facebook brought its Slack-competing service out of private beta last year and rebranded it as simply 'Workplace.'
