Slack just launched its new clips feature, allowing coworkers to record video messages within their Slack channels. Slack users can record up to three-minute clips on the desktop as well as the mobile app.
These Clips can be shared in channels or through DMs on Slack, and they even include live captions and a transcript of the recording. The transcripts are searchable in the Slack interface and make it easier to find them whenever users need to.
Because they’re just like sharing an image or a text message in Slack, coworkers can reply with text, audio, video, or emoji.
Tamar Yehoshua, the Chief Product Officer at Slack said:
“We were inspired by how people are using video in consumer apps. We actually prototyped a lot of different versions of this internally, and now we’ve settled on this as a means of communicating into your work repository.”
Clips have already begun rolling out and will be available for all paid teams this fall.
