Slack unveils upgrades for Zoom app

After listing on the Nasdaq last week, Zoom Video Communications Inc. rushed to expand cooperation with Slack Technologies Inc., which is due to publish a prospectus for its planned initial public offering soon. The latter, a maker of cloud-based team collaboration tools, cited on Thursday the integration of the San Jose–based company's system and said it strives to simplify communication.

The upgrade to the Zoom app for Slack, which has headquarters in San Francisco, will include meeting details for users before they join, according to the announcement. The Zoom Phone feature will be rolled out for calls over mobile devices including cellular connections, the statement adds.

"Slack’s Outlook Calendar and Google Calendar apps already include a feature that allows you to join Zoom Meetings with the click of a button. Both apps notify you in Slack of your upcoming meetings, and for meetings that include a Zoom link, calendar notifications have a handy button where you can join the call right from Slack, saving you a frantic search for the information in your calendar invite," the startup revealed.
