Slack has introduced a new feature that will allow users to have more seamless communication with their distributed team members.
Slack Huddles aims to support companies adopting a hybrid model and allows users to connect with their coworkers, whether they are in the office or working from home.
Through the new tool, users can easily have audio conversations across channels and send direct messages on the platform. It also features the ability to create and play back video and audio recordings, provides a full transcript and gives workers access to a new employee directory called Slack Atlas.
Other technology competitors have also been tweaking their collaborative software. For instance, Microsoft recently made design changes to its Teams app to improve workers’ interactions.
