Energize your remote work culture with these 5 apps for Slack

Track your time, check on others and jam together with the same soundtrack

Vom Slack-Team9. Juni 2020

If you’re new to remote work, you might be nostalgic about the little things that helped you feel connected while at the office: water cooler talks, your deskmate’s music choices, even seeing who’s on snack break. In the midst of getting used to working remotely, our developer community has come up with solutions to bridge the gaps with some fun apps to help you feel close to your coworkers, no matter their distance.

Schedule a spontaneous meetup in Slack

When you’re missing the coffee meetups and hallway chats of office life, grab time with Snack. The app matches two random people in a Slack channel for a short, timed video call. Matching is based on your activity on Slack, your time zone and your interests, and it helps kick things off with a series of icebreakers to discuss.

Use Snack to:
  • Match people for impromptu, video conversations with icebreakers
  • Conduct meetings with time limits, which help reduce anxiety for people who want spontaneous conversation

Resonatr solves an interesting problem: How do you share and synchronize music across your entire team, no matter where they’re working? With Resonatr, you set aside a channel for people to post requests or add songs to a playlist, and in turn it creates a station everyone can listen to together and work to the same beat.

  • Run an interactive trivia game: ’90s movies? Cooking? Music from the ’80s? Geometry? There are thousands of questions across dozens of categories
  • Gather hot takes from everyone with a random prompt for a much-needed break from work
