Zoom’s answer to Slack is getting a new name and some new tools

In an effort to better compete with rivals like Slack and Microsoft Teams, Zoom is taking its first steps in revamping its messaging app by unveiling a name change and several new features.

Instead of being called Zoom Chat, the messaging platform is now called: Zoom team chat (opens in new tab). A relatively minor change, but one that should reflect the company’s revamped design philosophy for the app. Rather than being known just for its video calling app, Zoom aims to play a more significant role in hybrid work environments, with Team Chat leading the way as a collaboration hub.
