Screenhero joins Slack!

Screen sharing for collaboration in teams made easy

slack and screen hero

Around the same time we started building Slack, another team began building their vision; a service specializing in voice, video and screen sharing that would allow people working remotely to work as if they were in the same room, and people in the same room to work better than ever.

That team was Screenhero. And the more we got to know them, the more we liked the cut of their jib.

So Screenhero is joining Slack. This is very good.

This is the plan:

  • Over the coming months, we will be migrating all of Screenhero’s many features, along with many new ones, to Slack.
  • During this time, Slack teams on the Standard or Plus Plan can use Screenhero for free to get a taste of what’s to come (magically create your account now, in fact. Why not?)
  • Other than existing paid customers of Slack and invites sent by existing Screenhero users, new signups will be disabled while we concentrate our efforts on the integration.
  • Once the integration is complete, Screenhero as a standalone service will be phased out with a generous notice period and transition plan. In the meantime, service will continue as normal, except you won’t have to pay anymore :)

Basically, the integrated Slack + Screenhero experience is going to be incredible. We are giddy with excitement about the possibilities and positive you will love it.

(And again, you can find out more and sign up your Standard or Plus Plan teams at slack.com/screenhero.)

Slack is the collaboration hub, where the right people are always in the loop and key information is always at their fingertips. Teamwork in Slack happens in channels — searchable conversations that keep work organized and teams better connected.
