Powerful & Smart Channels

Create channels
Create private channels for focused discussions

Need to work on a new project? Simply create a private channel and invite select teammates. Unlike Teams, where you can’t create private channels.

Broadcast important updates to everyone

Want to inform everyone about the new company branding? Just share the news via Flock’s one-way announcement channel, instead of sharing the update on multiple channels, one by one.

Add teams
Add team members to channels automatically

Adding people to channels one by one? With Flock’s Smart Channels, you can add everyone from a function or a location to a channel in one go. Even better, every new user gets added automatically.

A more thoughtful chat experience

All your chats
in one place

Switching between 1-1 chats, teams, and channels can leave you confused in Microsoft Teams. Find all your messages in one place with Flock.

More chats
per scroll

With Flock, you can see more messages at a glance, so you don’t have to scroll endlessly. Teams’ cluttered UI, on the other hand, gives you only 5 messages per scroll.

Pin important stuff
for your team

With Flock, you can pin all types of files and messages, so anyone in that channel can find them instantly. Good luck searching for that document on Microsoft Teams!

Get more for less

Get more for less!

Why settle for the user limits that come with Microsoft Teams' Free plan when you can bring onboard unlimited users on Flock? Need more features? Upgrade to Flock's Pro plan and pay only for what you need - a great team messenger. Unless, of course you want to pay for that entire bundle of Microsoft software you probably won't use!
