Slack is planning on including audio options much like Clubhouse to its office messaging app. Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield talked concerning the upcoming options in a Clubhouse room hosted by former TechCrunch reporter Josh Constine.
In keeping with a report by Protocol, Butterfield talked about one function that’s already in beta testing, and that’s audio messages. Much like audio messages on apps like WhatsApp, Slack customers may also be capable to report and ship audio messages to others within the app. One other function that Slack plans to launch quickly is Clubhouse-like audio rooms. This function will let Slack customers be part of rooms and have audio conversations.
Now this may increasingly sound like having a bunch voice name amongst your Slack workforce members. However it would differ as audio rooms received’t require customers to schedule a name or provoke one. It is going to most probably be much like Clubhouse whereby customers will be capable to host an audio room, and others can be part of and depart anytime.
Slack additionally plans so as to add ephemeral video messages which is impressed by Snapchat Tales, and a function that’s very fashionable on Instagram. These options have been within the works for fairly a while, and so they had been a part of Slack’s roadmap in October final 12 months. Butterfield didn’t give particular dates for the rollout of those options.
It seems like Slack has a variety of new options deliberate for customers. Simply earlier this week it launched a brand new function that allows you to chat with another Slack consumer. This function is known as ‘Join DMs’, and it enables you to ship an invite to anybody via their work e-mail handle and begin a Slack chat.
