- Facebook will reportedly launch Facebook At Work in the next few weeks, according to reports from TechCrunch and The Information.
- The long-anticipated enterprise communication and collaboration tool will launch on a per seat pricing model, though the exact price and additional details have not been announced.
- Facebook at Work is currently in closed beta with about 450 companies, including the Royal Bank of Scotland.
The interoffice messaging space is quickly growing very crowded as companies look for ways to enable employees to better communicate, exchange ideas and improve collaboration.
Once it becomes available, Facebook at Work will likely prove a competitive tool, simply because of its familiarity. The platform could even rival Slack in popularity.
But Facebook is not the only company releasing a competitive messaging interoffice messaging tool. Microsoft, too, is reportedly developing its own platform. Known as Skype Teams, the app will also reportedly enable Office 365 integration. Microsoft is currently testing Skype Teams internally, but a beta of the service is expected in November.
