Slack’s new tools help you cut down on video calls

Slack announced a bunch of tools today to improve the experience of work meetings. And, of course, a Clubhouse clone is a part of this.

The enterprise communication firm’s live-audio conversation product is called Huddle. You can start a Huddle in a channel or a DM — even if they’re not a part of your organization.

Just like other real-time conversation products, you can hop in and hop out of it any time. The idea is to avoid scheduling a video meeting for something that could be discussed in a couple of minutes. Plus, you can also share your screen to look at a presentation together.

Mat Mullen, a senior project manager at Slack, told TNW over a call that Huddle is different from Clubhouse-like audio products as it’s meant to facilitate non-moderated conversations. However, he added that it’s thinking about introducing curated conversations in the future. Take a look at how Huddles works in the GIF below.
