As someone who attended the keynote presentation for Slack’s reveal of Slack GPT, I can confidently say that this new generative AI technology has the potential to revolutionize how we work. Whether you’re a growing startup or a Fortune 100 company, productivity is crucial to success. Organizations need to empower their teams to save time and focus on strategic work that moves the business forward. This is where Slack GPT comes in.
Bringing Trusted Generative AI to Slack
At the heart of Slack GPT is the integration of AI into the Slack platform, bringing trusted generative AI to where your team already works. Slack is where customers house their institutional knowledge, captured in channels about every project, team, or topic, and securely integrate their tools using our open, extensible platform and partner ecosystem.
Slack GPT Features
Slack GPT includes an AI-ready platform to integrate and automate with your language model of choice, whether you use partner-built apps like OpenAI’s ChatGPT or Anthropic’s Claude or build your own custom integration. It also includes a set of AI features built directly in Slack, including AI-powered conversation summaries and writing assistance. Additionally, a new Einstein GPT app lets you surface AI-powered customer insights from trusted Salesforce Customer 360 data and Data Cloud.
Bring AI into Slack, Your Way
With the ecosystem of generative AI tools expanding, flexibility is becoming more critical. Whether you build with clicks, code, or a bit of both, Slack’s open, extensible platform lets you decide when and how you bring AI into Slack. You can integrate your AI language model of choice using partner-built apps from OpenAI’s ChatGPT, Anthropic’s Claude, and more. You can also build something custom, whether you bring your AI model or want to keep an integration in-house, using our newly available next-generation platform for developers.
Generative AI, Built Natively in Slack
From day one, Slack’s mission has been to make your working life simpler, more pleasant, and more productive. With Slack GPT, we’re sharing our vision for a new kind of productivity: one that brings the power of generative AI into the ways you already work in Slack.
Imagine if every time you hop into a channel, you’ll be able to get up to speed on unread Slack messages in one click, whether you’re jumping in midway through a project or catching up from being out of the office. In the future, with generative AI built seamlessly into the user experience, conversation summaries will be there when you need them, the moment you start scrolling through a channel.
AI Assistance Writing in a Canvas
With AI assistance built natively into Slack’s message composer and canvas, a new surface for curating information, Slack GPT could also help you tweak your drafts until the words are just right. In a few clicks, you’ll be able to distill content, adjust the tone, and more, right from where you’re already writing.
Increase Productivity for Small Businesses and Larger Teams
Slack GPT has enormous potential to increase productivity for both small businesses and larger teams. With the integration of generative AI, users can save time and focus on strategic work that moves the business forward. The AI-powered conversation summaries and writing assistance features could help users work smarter, learn faster, and write better. Additionally, the Einstein GPT app could provide AI-powered customer insights grounded in trusted Customer 360 data, right where you’re already working with your team.
