Everybody wants a piece of Slack

Facebook initially launched “Workplace” as a paid feature last year. The tool will let users use one-to-one and group voice and video calling, stream video, and chat. Workplace doesn’t have a robust administrative features, nor does it integrate with G-Suite (obviously), which may hurt corporate uptake in the long run.
