WeChat just launched a Slack competitor, but there’s a catch

ChinaThe Next Web — WeChat is ready to take on a new market: the office. The company today launched WeChat Enterprise, essentially its competitor to the ever-growing Slack. First announced in March, it has most of the features you expect from standard WeChat. You can make groups, send photos, voice clips, files, locations and even stickers. However, it differentiates itself with a few work-centric changes.

WeChat is building its own Slack

ChinaTech in Asia — Tencent, the company behind China’s wildly popular messenger/digital wallet/everything app WeChat, is planning to launch a new messenger aimed at office workers – and Slack had better watch out. The company hasn’t yet pegged a definite release date for Enterprise WeChat (企业微信), as it will be called, but there are a few things we know for sure.
