THREADED MESSAGING TO BE FINALLY INTRODUCED TO SLACK

Slack Chief Executive Officer, Stewart Butterfield in an interview with Walt Mossberg said threaded messaging which is perhaps one of Slack’s most important missing components is set to be finally introduced.

Slack is a service available as a desktop or mobile app, or a website. It is essentially a series of public chat rooms (called channels) on topics relevant to a company or to teams within a company.

Companies or teams can also set up private, invitation-only channels or conduct private, one-to-one or group messaging sessions.

Slack also gives you an opportunity to upload and store files. It allows integration with popular outside services, like Google Drive, Skype, Trello, and hundreds more.

It is sort of like a combination of Facebook, Twitter, iMessage, and Dropbox, but just for you and your co-workers.

Butterfield remarked that Slack had been using threading internally for months while testing what the best version of the tool would be for the service, which will hopefully come out in the next quarter. The details about how threaded messaging will look like are, of course, still scarce.

However, it is in Slack’s DNA to build simple collaboration services that look more like consumer tools than the standard-issue enterprise ones. This is what the new threaded messaging would facilitate.

The introduction of the threaded messaging would bring the service to another level, helping it become a more important part of the workflow and upending existing services.

It is also expected that the introduction of threaded messaging in other services like Yammer, Citrix Podio and Convo, would bridge the playing field between collaboration services and give Slack an opportunity to gobble up a much wider part of the field.

The service is going to need to find ways to usurp those services in order to attract new clients. And that includes attracting clients outside of Silicon Valley where the company will have to find growth if it wants to become the truly massive business investors are staking on.
