Microsoft is reportedly working on creating a Slack competitor
According to MSPowerUser, software giant Microsoft is working on a new service which will directly challenge Slack enterprise group messaging app. The service, which Microsoft is reportedly working on together with Skype, is called 'Skype Teams.'
The report has revealed that since the Skype Teams service will not only resemble Slack, but will also come with a number of Slack's familiar and much-liked group messaging features including video and voice calling.
In addition, Microsoft's Skype Teams group messaging service will also apparently include a convenient feature called 'Threaded Conversations,' on the lines of Facebook comments. Slack does not currently have such a feature in its group messaging app.
Revealing that the Skype Teams group messaging service is already being tested internally by Microsoft, MSPowerUser report said that the service will give users the ability to chat privately as well as in groups.
The MSPowerUser report specifically said: "Skype Teams will allow you to chat in different groups within a team, also known as 'channels.' Additionally, users will be able to talk to each other via Direct Messages on Skype Teams."
As per the report, Microsoft plans to release Skype Teams as a web and Windows app, and also as apps for iOS, Android, and Windows Phone mobile devices.
