The way that people communicate has been changing into a culture of instant messaging through many different types of applications such as Facebook Messenger, Google Chat, WhatsApp and many other applications. What Slack brings to the table from these other messaging applications allows people to be added into teams where some chats are meant for some teams and some for others. Channels for dedicated groups and different topics can be made. This application though revolutionary in the Business world is nothing new to the world of gaming. Gaming messaging applications have allowed similar chat programs in to coordinate though many challenges. One application that would be considered similar would be Discord where similarly people can create their own groups and invite people to the chat group with their own topic.
