All Slack Everything

We tried a thing.

Our product team went all-in on using Slack for video calls. For standups, planning meetings...everything.

No more Zoom. Goodbye, Hangouts. Why use three tools for the same job when one gets the job done, amirite?

We were not right.

Screen-sharing in Slack is weird. Don't believe me–try doing it in a few meetings and not hating it. What helps make remote work less awkward is the ability to see every face on-screen, even while sharing a screen. When the experience for this is not good, the meeting can be pretty painful.

So it's back to Zoom and Hangouts for our remote meetings.

Zoom is better than Hangouts

Screen sharing in Google Hangouts is lame. No virtual backgrounds or beauty filter. Use Zoom.
