#3 Product of the DayMarch 08, 2018

M.io is a universal messaging network. Users of popular chat apps like Slack, Cisco Spark, and Atlassian Stride can use M.io to send each other direct messages and join cross-platform channels. M.io is the easiest way to chat with external vendors, partners and customers regardless of which chat app they use.

    Cross channel conversations, less email, less chat apps to download



    Honestly, this product and team is so great that they will be acquired within a year. The product just works so well and reduces so much time. Super easy to use and amazing for topic conversations.

  • Pros: 

    It just works. Been playing with it since early alpha.


    Setup could be easier, but that depends on the various messaging providers, not M.io.

    Reminds me of what Meebo was and could have been. Will help solve the problem of having so many damn Slack workspaces, and chatting with customers and clients in our case who all use different stuff. I also just want these guys to succeed because there should be a standard protocol for this stuff, a fabric across everything, just as with every other web utility (e.g. Jabber / XMPP etc.) — I'm sick of these siloed platform wars, the user always suffers.

Hi everyone. I'm one of the founders of M.io. We'd love any feedback from the Product Hunt community, suggestions on which messaging platforms to add next, new feature ideas, etc. I'll be around all day to respond to any comments/questions. All messaging apps have one thing in common: they're all walled gardens; both the message sender and the receiver must be using the same application. We're building M.io because we want to make it easy to chat with anyone, regardless of which messaging app they are using. We are launching today with support for Slack, Cisco Spark and Atlassian Stride, but our plan to add all major consumer and enterprise messaging apps by the end of the year.

Suuuuuuch a great idea. This is magical! At the university I work at, more and more departments are starting to use Slack, so this is a great tool for interdepartmental collaboration. 🔥🙏

😍Been kicking tires on this product for little while now. It's magic. So easy to spin up conversations with anyone, or kick off new groups with people from many different organizations. The wizardry these guys have pulled off is in the fact that it all just-works. Image attachments, threads, reacji, mentions... all of it. 👏

Congrats on the launch, Tom, Chris, Trevor and the gang! Been using M.IO now for a 3 or 4 months and it's been great. We've created a community for our podcast so everyone can chime in on the conversation from where ever they may be. Even chatting to friends and colleagues across Slack workspaces has been awesome so I don't have to switch back and fourth to my phone for SMS. Really looking forward to trying out the support for Atlassian Stride. The future of conversational commerce right here!
