What's the best app to group chat with several people?

What's the best solution for communicating with ~10 people on a group project? Email doesn't cut it for me and I'm looking for something that's temporary. Coordinating with a group of 10-15 people for a couple of weeks.

    Taskade lets you chat, video conference, and work together on the same page. You can keep track of team tasks in chat in a structured way, as each conversation refers back to the task list, kanban, or mind map.

    Easy to invite people via a link and you can share files as large as 1.5gb. And they just added video chat.

    Brings messaging, file sharing and conferences with guests together. Since it is all browser based I think it fits your temporary need.

    Discord Stages

    Engage and grow your community with easy to run audio events

    Even if Discord is for gamers, it's easy to use and has a modern chat and has also great voice support (I mean that the quality is very very good and there is almost no latency (~10ms for me))

    Troop Messenger- a professional team chat app that combines the whole team in a single platform with user-friendly functionalities and features. We can easily communicate with the team with groups chat, audio calling, video conference, file sharing. It has a good UI/UX design and user-friendly application.

    We have set up a Whatsapp group on a side to communicate within out little team. It works and everyone has it. Plus the web version in handy. I reckon it will be great for a couple of weeks.

    Other than Slack, this is probably your best bet in terms of ease of use and team accessibility.

    Great conversations. Built for mobile, tablets, & desktop.

    Secure with video chat and screen share. Also I find the drawing on pictures very useful for feedback on design.

    Maybe Asana? It would make your communication a bit more focused on tasks (which would probably be good for 15 people!), and the free tier would work fine for you.

    This is a great "to-do" list that can be shared with everyone. you can @ people in your tasks or add them as a follower too. You have your own list and others can create their own (so you don't see everything in one hit, only tasks assigned to you). You can also create groups you can all share to :)

    If you want to have structured communication, having thing organized in Google Docs, especially Sheets, is awesome. When you mention someone in a comment, they get notified. You can also set up the mention as creating a task. I've used this on several recent projects and events I've hosted. It's a low friction, asynchronous way of getting things done!

    Real-time team messenger tool

    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.

    Facebook Messenger

    Facebook's standalone Messenger for the web

    Easy to use, and the event feature works as an efficient way to remind people of when/where they should be at all times (if you go through the trouble of setting them up)!

    I know this seems a bit left field compared to say Slack, but using Jira will add a lot of structure because you can assign tasks to each person. Live communication can still be facilitated using the comments function in each task. You'll know where you're up to on every tasks and be able to easily monitor progress.

    Since almost every one of us uses FB it makes sense to create a group where everyone is already present.
