Slack is looking to expand its product into new territories with a new product called Slack: A new tool for collaboration and sharing information, it has announced.
The product, which is built on top of Facebook’s existing API, allows users to create and share “messages” and “calls” through the app.
It is a bit like Facebook Messenger but, in some ways, easier to use.
“Slack is an extension of Facebook Messenger that lets users send and receive text, audio, video, and photo messages and share them across a social network,” a Slack spokesperson told Next Big Time.
“The user doesn’t have to know anything about a particular messaging app or service.”
It has been available on the app for a few weeks.
“If you’re not familiar with Facebook, you can start using it today.
If you’re new to Slack, it’s the same as using Facebook, except it’s free,” the spokesperson said.
“As of today, we have over 70 million users using Slack, which we think is a good number for a messaging app.”
Slack has been built to allow users to share information in a simple and fast way.
This allows it to “go viral” on social media, it said.
Slack is the first social network to go viral on its platform.
“For many people, the first thing they do on Slack is log in and see what’s going on.
That’s the first place they look for new information,” said Slock founder and CEO Mark Shuttleworth.
“So we wanted to build a tool that would let users see what other people are up to.
We think it’ll be an awesome way to learn about a platform, to make friends and share content with other people, and to share news.”
Slack’s API, the same platform that Facebook used for its Messenger app, is also open source, so anyone can use it to create their own services and products.
“In the past, Slack was built in a very traditional way, so if you wanted to do things like send messages, you’d have to spend a lot of time on the platform,” the Slack spokesperson said, adding that Slack’s main goal was to be a simple way for people to get things done.
“We’re building this as a service to make it easy for people like you to build things, and for companies to build products on Slack.”
Slack is also aiming to make the app accessible to everyone, as it did on Facebook.
“Our hope is that the API will open up more possibilities for users to build applications for Slack, including apps that allow them to work from anywhere,” Shuttleworth said.
This is not the first time Slack has launched a product.
In May 2016, Slack introduced a new “core” product called a “message queue”, which was based on the Facebook Messenger app and which is free to use on iOS and Android.
This new feature will be available on Slack in the next few weeks, the spokesperson added.
“While it’s a great tool for new users, the Slack core will remain free and available to all users.
As we continue to roll out new features, we will continue to make this a service that everyone can use.”
