Slack is one of the most popular office collaboration platforms and is getting better. Stewart Butterfield, CEO of Slack, said TheVerge in an interview that the company is working on a news planning feature for the platform, among other ideas such as short-lived stories and short media clips (both audio and video).
Butterfield announced that Slack "has implemented APIs for the scheduled sending of messages, and I think we will include this in the product at some point." He added that new tools that give more control over notifications and allow users to stay on top of things are also in the pipeline.
Another notable feature that Slack may soon get is support for exchanging short video and audio messages, just like on instant messaging platforms like Telegram and WhatsApp. Rather than introducing a real-time video chat feature, Slack has reportedly been more inclined to “synchronous video or audio communication,” which is considered better for the platform.
