Taking work into remote settings has become a very common thing these days. But with it, the personal fun and enjoyment of seeing your co-workers can take a toll making for a dull working environment. Luckily Slack now allows for plug-ins that are games you can play with your co-workers! This increases your relationship and makes the workload more bearable as you have small fun breaks to keep things interesting.
What Is Slack?
Slack is a great place to have fun with work. Many employees use it as their primary communication app at work. It’s a free messaging app that allows you and your team to communicate in real-time, even when you are not together in the same room. It has voice and video calling, file sharing, and a host of other great features. And now, there are also a variety of fun games you can add to the application that you and your team or channel can play together!
The Benefit of Playing Games On Slack
Slack games are a lot of fun. They can be played individually or against another team member. They are easy to create and add to your Slack channel. You can find hundreds of game templates to get you started. And best of all, they do not require any download or installation on your part! You simply click the button that says “add game” and then give your game a title and description.
Then, all you have to do is add one or more players to your game, and you are ready to go. When you add a player to your game, they will receive an email with a link that lets them download the game onto their device. Once they do this, they will automatically be added to your channel as a player in your game. You can also set the number of rounds your game will have. For example, you could have a 2-player fun where each player has 10 minutes to complete as many tasks as they can. Or you could have a 1-player game with no time limit. Whatever you decide is best for your team.
Make Remote Engaging and Productive
You can turn a daily communication tool into a powerful productivity and engagement booster by adding games to Slack! It’s a great way to keep your team or channel connected and have some fun at the same time.
Slack makes remote work possible and more productive than ever. It has become the ultimate team player for businesses that want to be agile and responsive. And by adding in a game or two, your team will be closer, engaged, and motivated to work well!
