Slack has added new ‘co-working’ tools to its Huddles service which includes video and multi-person screen sharing functions.

The new capabilities revealed at Slack Frontiers on Wednesday are part of the comms platform’s “digital HQ” strategy which aims to make Slack a virtual replacement for the office.

Slack Huddles isn’t meant to replace video conferencing services like Zoom or Google Hangouts as it caters more towards quick sessions or off-the-cuff meetings of around 10 minutes or so. Specifically, Slack Huddles was developed to re-create the informal discussions colleagues have in offices.

Pushing that further, users will soon be able to see each other as Huddles will have a ‘lightweight’ video which will be accessible with just one click. This will include multi-person screen sharing and capabilities to react to others with drawings and emojis and share documents, links and comments in a thread. What’s more, the thread will automatically be saved to the channel so it can be accessed later on.

All Huddles will start as audio-only by default, in a small, minimized screen. One click will launch the video and users can also select blurred or stylized backgrounds.

The screen-sharing features will differ from traditional models as each user on the call can share their screen, simultaneously. This may sound slightly confusing, but as a use case, Slack describes a design session where different participants can pull up their own images at the same time for the rest of the call to view. These can then be worked upon with a live cursor which can be used to emphasize and highlight certain bits of a shared screen, so if something on a design needs to be tweaked, users can draw on the part they want to fix.

All new coworking features will be available to Slack customers – regardless of subscription level – in the autumn and will be available to use with Slack Connect.
