Slack’s platform helps turn it into the operating system for an office. Slack connects to all of a team’s disparate applications and unifies them in one interface.
Until recently, the only way to add interactivity to a Slack integration was to interpret text messages from users. Two weeks ago, Slack changed the game by allowing integration builders to include buttons. Now, developers can start to build rich interfaces that live inside of Slack.
This update foreshadows where our work is moving. We predict that, over the next few years, Slack’s platform will become richer and richer, allowing for deep interactions right inside of Slack.
