Facebook launches chat app created to make you do more work

Design Refresh WWW Bookmarks Before and After_preview

Facebook Workplace, which launched a year ago, is similar to Slack, in that it's created to help colleagues communicate and collaborate with a range of real-time messaging features. For those who are interested in exploring new options and platforms, you'll be pleased to learn that Workplace Chat has since been launched and is no longer in beta.

In addition, in the coming weeks, Facebook says it will begin rolling out group video chat on desktop and mobile, so teams can have face-to-face meetings from the comfort of their device screens.

The social network has just introduced desktop versions of Workplace Chat, which is available to Windows and MacOS users. Organisations can also leverage features like message reactions, @mentions, and animated GIF images, all of which are widely used in Slack, a popular workplace collaboration and communications app.

On its one-year anniversary, Workplace is also getting a design update. At the moment, 30,000 organisations are using Workplace worldwide.

No less than a million plus groups have been created on Workplace to date.

"Workplace gives us a place to work together". Some of the companies include Walmart, Heineken, Spotify, Lyft and the Reliance Group. "With operations across more than 150 cities in 12 countries, we're able to use Workplace to collaborate and build culture across our global offices, onboard new people and bring our company closer together", commented Mike Hudack, CTO at Deliveroo.
