The amount of paying customers using Slack has risen by over 50 percent over the past five decades to over 85,000, Slack Technologies said in a blog post.
Slack, launched in 2013, enables teams and companies to communicate through classes and has quickly substituted email at many businesses, although email is still the dominant medium of communication in workplaces.
Microsoft has not disclosed daily user statistics for exemptions but reports suggest about 329,000 organizations use the service.
Reuters reported this month that Slack had been”seriously” considering making its stock market introduction through a direct listing.
Before this month, Slack declared its chief product officer, April Underwood, was departing the messaging startup, at a time when the business is researching a public record later this year.
Underwood is leaving to spend more time working in #Angels, an investment group she co-founded three months before joining Slack in 2015, based on her blog post.
She will be substituted by Google executive Tamar Yehoshua, Slack, which provides direct and chat messaging services for businesses.
Reuters reported earlier this month that Slack is”seriously” considering making its stock exchange introduction through an immediate listing, a plan that will make it the 2nd huge technology company following Spotify to bypass a traditional IPO process in moving people.
