Mio Bridges Messaging Gap Between Slack and Microsoft Teams
In a blog post this week, chat interoperability provider Mio announced that Slack and Microsoft Teams users participating in a universal channel via the company’s cross-platform messaging solution can now send direct messages to each other. Within the universal channel, employee A using Teams can simply invite employee B using Slack to chat via direct message. The direct message would appear natively to each user. Mio also supports direct messaging between Slack and Cisco Webex.
