Slack Clips Made Available For Video Messages
Slack has made generally available its Slack Clips tool to create and share audio, video and screen recordings within any Slack channel or direct message. Users — internal and external — can record and share clips to a channel for colleagues to watch at a later time. Viewers can speed up or slow down the message, use live captions and open a transcript to find particular parts of the message.
Users can respond to Slack Clips in a different medium, such as responding to a video message with audio or text, according to the company.
Over the summer, Slack introduced Huddles for audio drop-ins for members of a channel to take part in, recreating the experience of dropping by someone’s desk to chat.
Slack has received criticism in the past for its lack of video capabilities, including a dig from Microsoft last year over the absence of video conferencing.
