2017 - Slack gets cool screen-sharing tool to strike back at Stride


The collaborative workplace platform Slack is adding one of its most requested features: screen-sharing tool. Slack previously allowed users on a call to share screens with other collaborators, but now, Slack users can also allow others to interact with the screen in a number of ways, including typing, drawing, and editing on the screen. Enabling this new interactive screen-sharing ability on Slack looks pretty simple. During a Slack call, you just need to hit the "Share control of your screen" button which will then give each participant on the call their own cursor. They can now type, edit, and draw on the shared screen. Thereby Slack now provides more real-time collaboration options if compared vs Stride

2017 - Atlassian launched Stride - its new Slack competitor


Atlassian, that has long offered a team communications service HipChat, now launched more Slack-like service called Stride. It includes both a smart text-based messaging service and a fully featured video and audio conferencing service that enables frictionless meetings without the need to install any plug-ins. Stride's free version supports an unlimited amount of users, group audio and video, as well as support for bots and third-party integrations. The main limit here is that the free version only stores the last 25,000 messages and you only get 5GB of file storage. For $3 per user/month, those limits completely disappear and you also get support for guest access, screen sharing and advanced user management.
