Google wants to take on Slack and Microsoft Teams by making another messaging service
Google has up to now had a love-hate relationship with messaging companies, because it threw a number of of them in opposition to the wall, however only some caught, and that too not for lengthy. But this didn’t deter the corporate from renewing its efforts to make another try, this time for companies. A report by The Information means that Google might unify its current communication companies right into a workplace-oriented app to stand in opposition to Slack and Microsoft Teams.
The present options out there for speaking together with your colleagues embrace Gmail and two Hangouts apps—one every for messaging and video conferencing. The fragmented package deal falls flat in opposition to the likes of Slack that gives a unified app with higher third-party integrations. Eyeing for the “unified” half, Google is anticipated to consolidate the three apps into one and throw Drive into the combination to permit simpler, and presumably sooner, file sharing inside the crew. When prepared, the cellular app can be supplied as part of G Suite.
While Google is busy finding out its varied messaging companies to fight the rising recognition of Microsoft Teams, we nonetheless hope it quickly turns its consideration to including a correct graphics editor to its business-facing suite. Microsoft can be individually previewing an all-in-one Office app, which equally combines its standard productiveness apps (Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and others) into one.
