Liven up the conversation
Emoji reactions. Colourful backgrounds. Delightful effects. In huddles, teams can express themselves to make being together even better.
If it’s shared in a huddle, it’s saved in Slack
Any links, documents and messages shared during a huddle are automatically saved once the huddle ends, so your team can easily jump back to them for reference.

Frequently asked questions
Huddles are perfect for informal discussions or spontaneous working sessions. For instance, you can start a huddle to ask a quick question, brainstorm, resolve an issue or work together on slides or a document.
All huddles start as audio-only conversations. If you are looking to collaborate deeper with your team, you can turn on your video, share your screen, send messages in the huddle thread and use fun reactions throughout the course of your discussion or working session.
All huddles start from where you are already doing your work – in a channel or direct message. Simply click on the huddle toggle at the bottom left corner of your Slack window to initiate a huddle with your team.
Huddles are available on desktop, mobile and iPad so you can start (or join!) a huddle wherever you’re working.
With the free version of Slack, there’s a two-person maximum for huddles. With the paid versions of Slack, you can have a huddle with up to 50 people.
