Slack a messaging app for work teams

first_imgSlack is a new super messaging app for businesses, with 1.1 million daily active users in just a year of its existence with about USD 340 million funding raised and USD 2.8 billion valuation. A lot of third-party services such as Dropbox, Google Hangouts and Google Drive, Twitter, Mailchimp, and others are now integrating their services within the slack platform so that users can use their services right from the Slack service.The main reason for the hyper growth of Slack is due to the vast integration capabilities within these third party apps which keep all these different digital services in one user interface.Most of these service integrations have been focused on tech teams, or tech-savvy business teams, as that was the Slack first-adopter userbase. But as it moves into the mainstream work environment, its usage is now expanding into other early extra-curricular services through its main chat function, such as dating chat, startup advice chat, developers chat, and now, a new crop of group travel advice and booking services.last_img
