Slack announced a new feature Tuesday that will enable users to sign into and use other apps with their Slack identities.
Similar to "Sign in with Facebook," the feature will enable people to use their Slack IDs to sign in across an array of applications.
To start, Slack is partnering with word processing and collaboration app Quip and collaborative design product Figma, among others.
Much like Facebook is a sign in platform for users across the internet "Sign in with Slack" could make Slack the identity security provider for the enterprise. Rather than having to remember a login and password for every workplace app, users will simply use their Slack login to interact with third-party apps.
The new feature could also help boost productivity, while improving compliance and security capabilities.
Slack is one of only a few companies that has made any headway in the interoffice messaging space. As of April 1, Slack had 2.7 million daily active users and 800,000 paid seats. With corporate customers like NASA, LinkedIn and Spotify, the company is continuing make headway in the enterprise.
