We use Slack for daily chats, discussions, huddles. Basically, this is the overall solution to get connected with peers.
Every day we use Direct messages. We use it for discussing in temporary/permanent channels. So our use cases are:
-To connect with peers through direct messages.
-To discuss ib channels.
-To reply in the thread.
-To discuss in a quick huddle.
-Chat with peers through direct messages.
-To discuss in quick huddle.

  • Whenever we huddle and share the screen it hangs a lot.

In slack, we have the option to create and discuss in various channels very easily.
UI looks clean from the user's perspective.
UX is also good considering the feature it possesses.
Replying to various threads is very easy.
The search option for searching through keywords throughout direct messages and channels is a great feature.
