- John Xie made this productTaskade lets you chat, video conference, and work together on the same page. You can keep track of team chat in a structured way, as each conversation refers back to the task list. Visualize your task list in kanban view, mind maps, and more.
- Sorry to state the obvious but Slack is our favorite because it's: ✅ Available on every platform ✅ Delightful to use (although I'm not a fan of the overly complicated threaded replies) ✅ Has a vibrant community building bots and integrations for just about everything (see the Slack topic on PH)Slack is the freaking best. I'm on the same team as Ryan and I can attest that Slack is a thriving and delightful chat service. They've done such a brilliant job on messaging that work friends and I often find ourselves trying to use Slack commands or emojis in our text conversations (@-ing people doesn't work in text, as much as I want it to, nor does :party-parrot: and :bananarocks:, an underrated dancing banana).

- Microsoft Teams is great within organization that use Office ecosystem. The nativeness of onedrive and office product is just amazing. Files, calendar, skype, all is there in one browser (and desktop app if need be). Teams offers creation of teams and channels within them. Every team has a wiki, files and integration. All the office files can be embeded within the teams rather easy. Chatting, sharing and creating in Teams is easy and intuitive. Microsoft Teams mobile app is amazing as well. From time to time is kinda slow. But the team at Microsoft are optimizing it all the time. Their work on it and constant tweaking points to a good future.

- I know this is made for gamers - but there's simply not a better product out there for chatting. Currently a sidehustle project of mine exclusively uses Discord for chatting and even dev/creative collaboration. Pros: - Free, all messages saved with unlimited space for media - Text chats, voice chats, video chats, and screen sharing - 8MB upload limit (50MB if you pay) - Wildly intuitive roles/channels/chats management - Bot integration means you can do almost anything Slack can do - On all platforms + web - Simply a delight to use Cons: - Have to purchase Nitro to use animated emoji - Since it's new not nearly as widespread or known (yet)
- Priansh Shah made this productTyping can be convenient sometimes to search through, but our team has switched to using our own product for nearly all our communications now. We built Aiko Meet so that you could speak instead of type, with engaging video meetings that focus on productivity! Not to toot our own horn here but we think we're pretty cool too 😊 Aiko Meet is like any other video chat except it runs entirely in the browser, comes with no downloads or installs, and as long as you're using one of our top supported browsers (i.e. Chrome) it'll automatically transcribe everything you say as well. With a full transcript we've been able to go back in time to read what we discussed, while keeping the flexibility of video/voice that's just way faster for communicating than typing things out. We're working on integrating with other chat solutions as well so you'll soon be able to use us with many other popular tools like Slack!
- I find that the channels and comments in Slack can get overwhelming. Twist keeps conversations in treads, instead of conversations within conversations. It feels more like a mix between Slack and a forum platform, like Spectrum.chat. Twist is built by the team behind Todoist, whom knows a thing or two about building software that helps GTD.
- Take a look at Chanty — a simple and fast team chat app that my team is passionately creating. Chanty provides all required chat features from instant messaging to managing notification and creating tasks so that you can get on the same page with your team. Chanty is already known as a great Slack alternative for startups, small and medium business. Its competitive advantages are its speed, clear interface, built-in task manager and an affordable price. Chanty team chat apps are available on: Desktop (Windows, macOS and Linux (Debian and Fedora-based distributives). Mobile (Android and iOS). Web most popular browsers (Google Chrome, Safari, Edge, Mozilla).
- The IC Project is equipped with an instant messaging module which allows for conversations between team members and clients within the scope of a project and related tasks and activities. Thanks to the unique relationship between communication and the projects, every decision and every conversation is available to persons wishing to analyse the performance of the project and the reasons for success or failure. The ICP communication supports file attachments, multi-user chat and e-mail notifications for people not present in the system.
- Riter integrates capabilities of Slack and Jira so that you don't need to switch between them all the time and can keep all projects data together. Its tasks are designed as chatrooms, so each task is, first of all, a place to start a discussion. In practice, we usually need to discuss tasks between, during, and work. For now, many teams use Slack for communication, and Jira for project management. As a result, a lot of useful information is difficult to find over time in numerous channels, groups, and tasks themselves. We suggest using Riter instead. Discuss tasks right there, in comments to tasks, create notes, add todos, tags, etc. Keep your communication linked to the task which you're working on.
