Channels put an end to communication silos
Across your team, there's a range of things people need to communicate about. Channels in Slack give everyone a way to organize all those conversations, while making sure the right people are involved at the right time.
Make a channel for a project, a topic, a team, or anything—everyone has a place to work and a transparent view of all that's going on.
Face-to-face features are built right in
Need to stop typing and start talking? We hear you. Native voice and video calls with screen sharing mean that in just one click you can sync one-on-one or as a team. If you're on the go, calls on Slack's mobile apps make it simple to reach anyone on your team.
“With Slack we have removed the barriers to 'pick up the phone'. Calling on Slack just makes sense. It's always on hand and the quality is just as good, if not better, than everyone else.”Claes Nyströmer, Head of Communications & HR at Bambora
Everything you need to communicate in one place
Channels for projects, groups, and topics that are open to anyone on your team. Messages in these channels are archived and accessible by search.
For more sensitive topics, private channels keep conversation contained to an invited group. Messages are only searchable and accessible to members.
One-to-one and small group messaging adds flexibility around more focused conversations. You can convert direct messages to a private channel for longer-running topics.
Shared Channels (beta)
Share channels with the companies and businesses you regularly work with – like clients, vendors, and partners – to bring the right people across different organizations into the same room.
You can also add individual freelancers or contractors as guests in specific channels. Guest accounts are great for shorter-term initiatives or projects with individual parties.
Calls and Screen sharing
Make calls and share your screen right from channels and direct messages in Slack. Give everyone on the call a voice (and a cursor) by inviting them to directly click and type within your shared screen.
