WhatsApp for Work: Slack is turning into a full-on messaging app (Protocol)

Protocol: WhatsApp for Work: Slack is turning into a full-on messaging app. “Starting on Wednesday, any Slack user will be able to direct message any other Slack user. The new system is called Connect DMs, and works a bit like the messaging apps and buddy lists of old: Users send an invite to anyone via their work email address, and once the recipient accepts their new contact is added to their Slack sidebar. The conversations are tied to the users’ organizations, but exist in a separate section of the Slack app itself.”
