Integrate Freeflow with Slack

With the Freeflow app you can enhance your Slack conversations with context-rich audio/video chats. Teams use Freeflow to collaborate with the least possible amount of friction and reduce the need for scheduled meetings. 
Freeflow is a shared space with common rooms and personal offices, similar to a real-life office floor. You can see who is talking to who and jump into conversations with one click.
Our Slack app allows you to seamlessly flow between Freeflow and Slack. 
  • Instantly start and join conversations with /talk command.
  • Sync your availability between Freeflow and Slack.
  • Get a Slack notification when your team invites you to collaborate in Freeflow.
