In this tutorial, we want to teach you How To Install Slack on Centos 7.
Slack is a workplace communication tool, “a single place for messaging, tools and files.” This means Slack is an instant messaging system with lots of add-ins for other workplace tools. The add-ins aren’t necessary to use Slack, though, because the main functionality is all about talking to other people.
There are two methods of chat in Slack: channels (group chat), and direct message or DM (person-to-person chat).
