Join Slack’s shared channel beta

By joining Slack’s shared channel beta, you can share channels with companies and businesses you regularly work with — like clients, vendors, and partners — to bring all the right people into one place.

Benefits of shared channels 

  • Create a common space between two separate organizations in Slack
  • Simplify communication with teams you work with outside of your company
  • Connect across organizational boundaries: communicate in a shared channel or exchange direct messages with any person in a shared channel
