Users asked, Slack obliged. The fast-growing corporate collaboration service is rolling out a much-requested feature that lets teams react to messages using emoji. Just like most other social networks.
That’s right. Soon, Slack’s approximately 1.1 million users will be able to “favorite” or “like” comments. Vote for a specific idea in a brainstorming thread. Respond to a meeting request. Make a new person feel welcome. Report back on task progress. Or just express their random opinion using more than 300 images, rather than words.
