Slack has announced that is is now rolling out voice calls to every one of its users. The workplace chat app has been testing voice calls in beta for months, but everyone will now be able to take advantage of the feature going forward.
Updated below with a word from Slack on the Windows Phone app and this feature.
Anyone can make one-on-one calls, while paid teams can also make group calls in any channel or group DM. When someone initiates a call, a message will appear, inviting you to join the call.
Getting started with Slack calls is a pretty straightforward process. In the Windows app or Chrome, you can initiate a call by clicking the phone button at the top right of the window.
Unfortunately, calling doesn't look to be available in the Windows Phone app right now. However, you can go ahead and try the feature out on desktop.
Update: We asked Slack, because we had to, about the phone app. This is what they said.
@Ricker666 We're working on it! The Windows phone app is still in beta so it's going to be a little further down the road yet. ⛱— Slack (@SlackHQ) 8 June 2016
