Slack Adds In-Message Dropdown Menus to Apps

Slack’s latest feature is the addition of in-message dropdown menus for apps, the company announced this week.

“Messages are not just how you interact with your team — they’re also how you interact with the apps you need to get your job done,” the company said. “Now, we’re introducing message menus — clickable drop-down menus that bring more intricate and nuanced workflows to the apps you use in Slack.”

More than a dozen apps, including Front and SurveyMonkey, have added Slack’s new feature today. Each app uses the new dropdown menu in different ways.

Launched in 2013, Slack has more than five million daily active users, including 1.5 million paying customers.
