      The audio quality is so bad that it's the same level as a payphone. Really not worth paying money for when there are better solutions.

    Be less busy. Real-time messaging, archiving & search.

    Slack's new group video/audio chat feature is fantastic. Far easier to use than Skype or Hangouts for more than two people.

      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.

      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.
