As a remote designer, this is a must have. I'm always contactable and available. Super easy way to also have quick calls and communicate with other team members on different teams.
I'm a part of a ton of Slack communities but I'm active in only a handful.
Slack works to its fullest only when it is implemented in a team and everyone's supposed to use it for communication. Slack could/should improve on making the communities on it better by adding relevant features.
- I cannot believe WhatsApp is lower on this list. Whatsapp is the most reliable cross-platform application I have used in recent years. It has a very simple UI and always always serves the purpose.
I love Facebook Messenger and I love how it is doing everything to take on all other chat apps + is feature-packed like Telegram. Native apps for Facebook Messenger on computers is something that I wish to see soon.
Companies use this more and more to invade
- For real-time collaboration with the team. Stack of features - file sharing, video calls, task management, integrations and a lot more.... Oh and it's available across platforms plus, free to use for unlimited members! Great for small and big teams. It's awesome to use, slick and simple!
