Hello Product Hunt Community and thanks for hunting us, Nikhil. I’m Dave Rathmann, Founder and VP of Product at Umuse. We’ve built a workplace communication tool that brings together email and chat together in one Facebook-like feed with the goal of helping the average business user manage message overload. If you’re a Gmail and Slack user for example, you can download Umuse to bring your separate message streams together in one clean, simple interface that’s powered by smart technology and designed for speed. The goal is to give you one place to stay on top of all of your communication at work. We currently support Gmail and Slack and plan to add additional channels like text and social in the future. It’s removed a lot of the communication clutter from our work days and hope it does for you too. We’re excited to show you what we’ve built. Please download (it’s free!) and let us know if you have any feedback, comments, or questions.

@alimirza2k Hi Ali - good question. Both. We've built Umuse for the individual at work who has too many channels and messages to manage. Users and teams have been liking the Feed to put all of their messages in one place. And freelancers have been liking having all of their channels in one place.

@drathm Yes that's what I thought.. I am a Social Media Freelancer/Consultant and something like this can be a huge time saver. One place to manage all of my client communication + personal emails.

Awesome - that's the goal. Hope we can give you some more time back in your day!

I love the concept and the team behind it is a bunch of rockstars. As someone who spends a lot of time in Slack and Mail it makes a ton of sense to combine these two. The challenge for me was working through some old habits that were very email specific. But that didn't take too long.

Pros:

Clean, thoughtful, they paid attention to the details.

Cons:

A bit of a challenge to rewire my habits around email and Slack.

Great product to not only consolidate my email and slack but it saves me time by showing me what is important so I can focus. Excited to see what is next in this product.

@brian_simmons Thanks so much for the feedback, Brian.

I've been using Umuse for the last few months and am blown away by the approach to messaging and email. I often struggle to keep track of chat and questions asked in Slack. In addition, email piles on notification overload to my daily process.

With Umuse, I've been able to stay on top of passive inquiries, colleague conversations, and emails.

Looking forward to the Umuse roadmap and keeping on top of my messages!

Pros:

Easy to manage inbox zero for both chat and email

Cons:

Only available on desktop

Seems like a great product to manage my communications. The fewer places I have to go check, the better.
