Since we added voice calling to Slack earlier this year, teams have used the phone icon to make calls across the office and around the world. Now this handy button does even more: one-to-one and group video calling. Just click the phone icon to start a call — like you’ve been doing already — and then use the new camera button within your window to enable video.
Like with voice calling, it’s simple to get your team on a video call. No need to open a separate app, dial in to a meeting, or share invite links. Anyone on your Slack team can call another person directly, and if you’re on one of Slack’s paid plans, your team can make group video calls with up to 15 people.
