Facebook Workplace Takes on Slack and Microsoft Teams With New Features

Facebook

"Workplace Chat has always had mobile and browser components, and now we're adding a desktop app". Workplace Chat includes video chat with a coworker or group, screen sharing, and file sharing.

Earlier this month, we reported that Facebook has started testing Workplace desktop app for Windows users. Blaise DiPersia, a product designer at Facebook, announced on Wednesday that the goal of the new look of the platform is to facilitate a better connection for every user of the Workplace by Facebook. For the unfamiliar, the Workplace is a #Social Networking Site designed especially for businesses and organizations to connect. Companies are able to use a combination of Workplace features including groups for teamwork, video for storytelling, and integrations like Box and Office365 for everyday work.

It would also bring interactive video chat session, as well as video conferencing. These organisations have used the platform to create more than 1m groups between them, and Facebook doesn't want them to stop their use of the platform there.

Obama to report for jury duty in Chicago
After all five former presidents took the stage at the event, Bill Clinton stepped to the mic to deliver remarks. For that reason, Evans did not release further details about when or where exactly Obama will serve.

Launched in October previous year, Facebook's Workplace has so far attracted more than 30,000 organisations worldwide that have created over a million groups to bring their teams together under one platform. Some of these known brands are Delta, Starbucks, Spotify, Lyft, and Heineken. The team also recently signed a deal with Walmart, the largest private employer in the world. The inclusion of these well-known organization in its kitty allowed the enterprise service to gain credibility. Facebook is looking at aggressively expanding the team and has posted job listings for sales staff and growth managers.

Facebook has additionally tweaked the interface of the Workplace apps on mobile devices.

Facebook also doesn't share how many users it has, just total businesses. The social networking site is yet to reveal how much money it earns through the enterprise software.
