Slack yesterday announced the biggest changes to the interface since the service launched. Slack announced a new navigation bar that makes it easier to search and toggle between your recent conversations. Also, on top of the sidebar, mentions, reactions to your messages, files, people and apps are listed for easy access. Paid plan users can now organize their channels, direct messages and apps into customizable sections within their sidebar. You can learn more about the updates here.
Slack right now offers four different plans for its customers. Slack’s free plan allows small teams to try out Slack for an unlimited period of time. In response to coronavirus outbreak, Slack is now offering free upgrades to paid plans for local media organizations & scientific publications covering coronavirus research, response or mitigation.
