Quill is a new messaging service and app that promises to improve communication and collaboration and this spontaneously raises the doubt: was there need for the umpteenth messaging solution?
According to the development team, yes.
Because Quill, precisely emphasizes the development team, has been specifically designed to support productivity and concentration, especially in communication in teams and groups.
Quill pursues this goal with a series of design choices: reduce notifications and reserve interruptions to critical or time sensitive messages, collect thread conversations and try to be at least intrusive, so that the user can focus on his/her activities
The development of Quill is the San Francisco company of the same name, consisting of a team of engineers and designers who have previously had work experience in important companies in the technological sector, such as Apple, Square, Stripe, Snap, Wish, Face
The mission of society is to solve the problem of having to scramble between thousands of messages every day to keep up with the tasks and projects of work, and to build a way of chatting that is more similar to how you communicate in person, and in some ways still A more thoughtful and organized way of chatting.
For this purpose, threads keep their conversations more identifiable and organized. And when you need to stay focused on a topic, you can use structured channels.
The task feed allows you to first view the most important conversations, with the possibility to apply a snooze or store. Activity Feed always keeps conversations at hand, so that you can quickly retrieve new messages.
To enter and exit conversations without asking for threads, there are social channels, which are for free and unstructured stream chats.
Quill also allows you to communicate with rich content: sharing files, photos and videos, using advanced integrations, or keeping video chat alongside conversation.
Quill is available for all major platforms: web, macOS, Windows, Linux, iOS and Android. It is free for personal use and small groups and the Pro version (for teams, startups and small businesses) costs $15 per user per month; the scale service also meets the needs of larger companies, with the Enterprise subscription that will be launched soon.
