Stride hits general availability
Atlassian's group chat Stride, launched last September into beta, is now generally available to any and all teams that want to give it a try. Basing on beta-period experience the company says that its users have now spent a quarter of a million hours in Stride’s Focus Mode, which is meant to allow worked to reclaim a bit of sanity in today’s notification-driven world by allowing you to turn off all incoming messages and notifications. Since the closed beta launch, Atlassian has added about 50 new features and improvements to the service that include better ways to organize chat lists, better search and a number of improvements to the service’s video meetings features. Indeed, it’s these video chat features that the team is maybe the most proud of.
Stride alternatives are: Slack, Microsoft Teams, HipChat
