Meet Slack, a chat tool with collaboration talent to spare

Laura Blackwell | Dec. 13, 2013
Save your team from the chaotic mishmash of email, chat, and other discrete communication tools. Slack's file sharing and its ability to integrate cloud services make sharing information much easier.

Slack is currently in a limited preview release. You can sign up for a free preview at the Slack website.

Early next year, wider availability will launch with new pricing. The Lite subscription level (free) will keep a limited searchable archive, restrict integrations to a total of five, and cap total storage at 5GB. The Standard ($9/user/month) will keep a full archive; remove restrictions on integrations; and allow 10GB per user, shared across the entire team. The Plus level ($19/user/month) includes the benefits of the Standard level, with storage doubled to 20GB per user. An Enterprise level ($49-99/user/month) will appear in late 2014. All subscription levels include free native apps for Android, iOS, Mac, and PC.

Team communication can be a tense, tangled snarl of inefficiency. The more I use Tiny Speck's team communication tool, the more my shoulders relax. Maybe that's why they call it Slack.
