If your computer is the new office, where is the space for talking and getting together? Where is the “virtual coffee” machine? Today we’ll talk about team communication in remote working moments. With new apps and tools popping up nearly every day, how do you cut through the noise and pick the right one?

A couple of things to have in mind when deciding which app is the best option for your team:

1. Ease of use: People need an app that doesn’t waste their time, isn’t too complicated, and has a visually pleasing user interface.

2. Group capabilities: Look for a solution that makes it easy to organize conversations into groups. This allows teams to break discussions down by topic, event, project, and more.

3. Workflow integrations: Instead of switching from one platform to the next — search for integrations to content management apps, payroll systems, and field management systems like Rambox that helps make workflows more streamlined.

5 team communication apps that everyone loves

1. Slack

As a team communication app, Slack has a great balance between functionality and simplicity. Connect with your colleagues, in real-time, in three ways: direct messages, voice and video calls, and channels. Channels are “dedicated spaces” for conversations to take place according to the subject matter, team, etc.

It offers a limited free plan and paid plans for business and enterprise.

This app is Rambox-friendly 😀

2. Basecamp

If you’re looking for an all-in-one app for everything related to project management, collaboration, and communication — Basecamp is the answer.

Basecamp is a comprehensive tool for team collaboration, but the non-customizable flat rate means you may end up paying for features you don’t need — especially true for small teams.

Basecamp Personal is free and includes limited features, Basecamp Business goes up to $99/month.

This app is Rambox-friendly 😀

3. Microsoft Teams

Built with the same functionality as Slack and more, this app has upped the ante with its solid video chat capabilities and conferencing integrations. It can be not only a reliable standalone app for team messaging but also a compelling all-in-one solution for businesses when coupled with the Microsoft fleet of project management products. It’s an excellent option for enterprise businesses.

Available as a free download and then it goes to pricing options for personal or business.

This app is Rambox-friendly 😀

4. Google Chat

Google Meeting/Chat is a way for you to connect with your team. Set up video meetings or use the chat feature for instant communication. It’s easy, fast and runs on a platform that everyone knows.

This app is free with any Google account.

5. Discord

Discord is a platform that became popular among games, but grew to all types of industries for its powerful community-building experience. Discords allow you to chat in real-time via text, voice and video. Ideally, this tool can be used for teams organizing study groups, classes or training.

This app is totally free and it’s Rambox-friendly 😀

One last thing about team communication. Some apps make it easy to work out of a single platform by combining team chat with video conferencing, project management, cloud storage, and more. These tools are ideal for people who prefer not to have their work scattered across multiple apps.

Other chat apps keep it simple by doing one thing and doing it really well — perfect for those who prefer to keep instant messaging separate from their other activities.

Think about what problems you’re looking to solve and how you and your team members like to work, keeping in mind that many companies offer free trials, so you can always give it a spin before you commit. Also have in mind that if it is too difficult or too complicated to use, people will not adopt it. And remember, choose anyone you like, all of them integrate with Rambox.

Happy Working!
