Slack is gunning for Skype and Google Hangouts with the 2016 product roadmap it revealed today. The biggest change coming: the ability to seamlessly turn a text chat into a voice or video chat will begin testing “very soon”. This builds on Slack’s January 2015 acquisition of Screenhero, when it said these features would eventually be released.
At its customer conference in San Francisco, the company outlined what it plans to do to stay ahead of its workplace chat competitors. It already has 2.3 million daily active users, up from 2 million in December, and wants to give them more options to be productive, collaborative, and transparent.
Slack sees 320 million minutes of active usage per weekday, that breaks down to about 140 minutes of usage per user per weekday.
