Brief is our Favorite Alternative to Slack

Managing the communication of a large team of people can sometimes be a nightmare. Teams end up using several different apps for sharing files, chatting, video calling, and scheduling tasks. There are plenty of apps that have tried to tackle this issue in the past, with varying levels of success. Brief takes on the goal of being the last team productivity app you’ll ever need. They combine chat, video calls and to-do lists in an easy-to-use UI that works on Android, iOS, Window and MacOS.

Brief can be beneficial in many situations beyond the workplace. Maybe you have a large family, community group, or event. Brief is the ideal solution for any situation where there’s a number of people working on a project. While you might normally use email for these situations, email is honestly just outdated and terrible. When someone sends you a message on Brief, you can set that message as a task so you don’t forget it later on. The Brief chat is really optimized for group projects and has many tools like this built in.
