    Pros: 

    Possibility to be logged on multiple teams, being available at all times on mobile and desktop, and easy to connect with other services.

    Cons: 

    I'm pretty happy with Slack, so no cons for now :)

    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.

    Pros: 

    Easiest way to get everything under one roof.

    Cons: 

    Building active communities is really hard.

    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.

One of the most useful features of hipchat is the running history of files/links that have been shared in a room. I'd love for Slack to add this!

@adamslieb reading an old post so wanted to add that in the meanwhile slack does have this. Plus they also index/make it searchable

@digitalbase absolutely. They did add this and we switched out from HipChat to use it!

I've tried all the team messaging tools out there, and I think that this is by far the most effective, elegant one there is. It integrate with all the other services you could possibly use like Github and Asana, and they're probably going to implement even deeper integration now that they've raised a large round of funding.

Got my whole office using Slack. Slow and steady progress.

So good. The iOS app crushes Hipchat's. Our team made the switch and we haven't looked back.
