Slack plans to bring Clubhouse audio features to its app, because why not?

Slack is introducing more features that no one asked for.

What you need to know

  • Slack CEO has confirmed that the app will introduce Clubhouse audio features.
  • Audio messages are also in the works and are currently being tested.
  • Slack is still planning to launch its version of Snapchat Stories, which it announced last year.

Slack has been doing the absolute most lately, and not much of it good. The app just introduced a Slack Connect private messaging feature that allows members to send direct messages to anyone outside of their organization, something that caused much backlash. But the company isn't done introducing new features to the platform, and the next set will come straight from Clubhouse.

Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield confirmed (via Portal) in a Clubhouse chat that the app will add some new audio features that will be similar to Clubhouse. He didn't go into detail, but it's not surprising that the company wants to introduce new audio features, considering a growing number of platforms have already launched or plan to launch their own versions of the app. Meanwhile, Clubhouse availability on Android is still in the works, but some companies like Telegram are beating it to the punch.

Audio groups isn't the only feature coming to Clubhouse. A simple audio messaging feature is currently being tested on Slack, something already available on many other apps. Last year, the company announced that it planned to introduce its own version of Snapchat Stories at the end of 2020, although that didn't happen. Butterfield did mention that the feature was still arriving, although there's no timeframe. As one of the best messaging apps for phones like the Samsung Galaxy S21, Slack will hopefully put much more time and thought into its upcoming features than it did with its recent Slack Connect DM.

More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri
