Slack is letting its users take their chat credentials to other apps
Slack is offering its users a new way to sign into other applications. The company announced Tuesday that it has launched a new “Sign in with Slack” feature that lets people use their login for the chat app to sign in to participating applications.
Developers of applications like Quip can now enable their users to sign in with Slack credentials, which can make it easier for people to get started with applications — and therefore more likely to try them out. The new feature makes it possible for independent developers and startups focused on workplace productivity to get an easier foothold with new users.
