Facebook plans on offering a free version of its Slack competitor
Facebook's team collaboration software, Workplace, is getting a free version anyone can sign up for. The company is calling the tier its standard version, and it's currently testing it with a select group of users with a plan to roll it out later this year for any group that's eager to sign up. The freemium move emulates popular chat app Slack's multi-tier model. Facebook's aim is to get as many users trying its own workplace communication app as possible in the hopes it spreads to larger organizations and becomes a viable competitor to both Slack and Microsoft's new Teams software, which it gives away for free to users of Office 365.
