Jump on a live video call with your team

What’s it handy for?

Get everyone on the same page—no matter where they are—with a quick video call in Slack.

  • Have your 1:1 meetings from anywhere
  • Connect and collaborate with remote team members, face-to-face
  • Walk coworkers through the latest presentation or mockups with collaborative screen sharing

Know before you start:

All Slack users can launch a call in a direct message with another person. If you’re on a paid plan, you can do the same in channels with up to 15 people.

You can also connect Slack to other voice and video conferencing services, like Zoom, Webex, or Bluejeans. Your Slack administrator can even set them as the default app for the call button.

How to launch a video call:

  1. Click the phone button to begin your call.
    Start a video call in channel
  2. A new “join this call” message will be posted in the relevant DM or channel for others.

  3. Calls launch with audio enabled, and you can turn on video as well.
    Enable camera for video calls
  4. On Mac and Windows desktop computers you can share your screen and draw on the screen to make your point.
