Slack adds Threaded Messages to Take the Clutter out of Public Channels

As someone who uses slack religiously for both work and to connect with nearby by designers and developers on problem that always seems to arise is the “noise” that arises from having several people all trying to relate their ideas at once. This can definitely be an issue if you are trying to speak to someone particularly on a subject but do the nonstop text barrage its hard to get through to them effectively.

Now you may say, why don’t you just open up a direct message and talk to them that way? This works but it also means you could miss valuable information coming in via the main channel. Not anymore, slack is now rolling out a “thread” system, allowing you to stay in the conversation with your peers while also having a private talk with a specific person. This could be useful for answering questions, relaying design elements or development snippets or just for having a side joke with someone. Slack has consistently shown that they are the go to chat platform for business’s and for professionals and I am excited to see what they show come up with next.
