FYI: You Can Make Video Calls Using Slack.

With this addition, Slack is sending a message to Skype.

Slack and Skype now have another thing in common asides from sharing the same first letter, the number of letters, and function. On Tuesday,  Slack announced that you will be able to make video calls without leaving the service — “Just click the phone icon to start a call — like you’ve been doing already — and then use the new camera button within your window to enable video,” the team said.

One thing I loved about Slack’s video calling feature is the ability to use the emoji response feature while in a video call.

It’s currently available on Mac or PC desktop (Feature rolls out in “the next few days.”), but mobile users can participate in audio-only version of calls.

    … WELL, I HAVE NEVER USED SLACK AND ONE THING I JUST LOVE ABOUT IT IS THE LOGO. MICROSOFT IS A SOFTWARE GIANT BUT IT SEEMS THEY ARE GOING THE WAY OF OUR FORMER BELOVED NOKIA, BRINGING IT LATE TO THE PARTY AND I HOPE IT WOULDN’T BE A SORRY CASE. .
