    Pros

    Excellent messaging features, including practical things like tagging people, keyboard shortcuts, and inline attachment previews, as well as fun features like GIF's and Memes. Where Glip really stands out from the competition however is in its productivity features, and how easy it is to manage tasks, teams, notes, and calendar. Very versatile and accessible anywhere, as there are phone, desktop, and web apps all available. Vibrant, responsive community and support.

    Cons

    Honestly can't think of any drawbacks to the software at this time.

    Pros

    This has cool social things like gifs, you can track the files shared in the chats, you can make check list .

    Cons

    It needs a lot of updating, sometimes it will hold messages and send them all at once.

    Pros

    In spite of being a long time Slack user, I decided to give Glip a try internally since our company was already leveraging Ring Central for VoIP and Meetings. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that no core feature sets were lacking and to find a couple of extras that were missing in Slack. The most useful of those extras has been task assignment/management.

    Cons

    In a perfect world the Google Calendar integration would be a bit more robust and flexible, but I'm fairly certain that's on Google anyway.

    Our day to day processes has been fast-tracked by Glip.

    Pros

    At first, Glip was a new concept for us, but know. Well being able to jointly work on projects and files as a team without having to save and email then wait around for a reply, it is a no-brainer. The live text message is a perfect companion and is a wonderful tool. being able to screen share for trianing or just simple things like click here do this. has saved us countless cals and questions.

    Cons

    Cons are a tuff one the learning/just use it curve was on our end. Sometimes using something new is a tough thing to do, but once you do you ask yourself why didn't I do this sooner. That is the case with Glip. Just use it, you will be happy you did.

    Pros

    - It's much better than email. Allows you to chat and collaborate with your co-workers instantly.
    - Has an integrated calling feature that allows you to make video calls within the app. It's useful to not have to load up Skype.

    Cons

    - The user interface is quite clunky and looks very dated.
    - Locked the users out at random. It became so bad that the company moved to Slack.

    Very easy to use and helps increase the communication with the team.

    Pros

    I like how easy this software is to use and how it has changed the way we communicate in the office. Emails can get cluttered and missed, but Glip allows you to quickly get your message across to the team in a fun way. If issues are going on, or if we need to meet, Glip makes it super easy to communicate that to the team. It is instant messaging in today's world. We can even quickly share websites, attachments, and is mobile friendly.

    Cons

    It would be nice to have notifications come up if a meeting is organized, similar to a calendar invite through Outlook.

    It's a free communications tool; but there are others that do much more and do it better. Also has no linux integration.

    Pros

    It's free with our RingCentral contract. Seems to be light on system resources and isn't a required download.

    Cons

    It's integrated into all of RingCentral's products but there are many other solutions out there that do the same even better (some of which are also free). Has no way to disable those integrations so users often have to ask what it is and why it's proliferated.

    Pros

    Glip is very intuitive and easy to use. It allows quick, instant messaging throughout the company. You can create teams or talk 1 on 1. You can also incorporate notes, tasks, events, and files in your conversation, storing them all in a convenient "shelf" making it very easy to find that document you may have shared and lost once upon a time. We also LOVE the gif keyboard, makes company communications way more fun.

    Cons

    The software tends to crash or glitch every so often. It can be a little slow upon start-up, but that does not happen too frequently. Sometimes the notifications can be inconsistent or continue to pop up even if you have them turned off, but that is not too bothersome.

    Pros

    Glip by RingCentral is truly a game changer in the project management software industry. It's extremely innovative and offers a number of new and exciting features as well as an overall experience that it unrivalled by anything else on the market. It's also free with RingCentral, making it an even more enticing option.

    Cons

    There is a small yet very noticeable bug in Glip regarding the percentage completion of tasks, where Glip will report, for example, 20% of 40% being completed, even though it's actually just 20% more of the task being completed compared to before.

    The thing I like most about this software is that it works smoothly with ring central to enable video calling features. Works really well for remote teams who have to schedule 1:1 calls, as well as company-wide video calls.

    Cons

    It seems like the software needs to update quite frequently. Moreso than Slack or anything similar, but I suppose this is to be expected.

    Pros

    Top on the list of any messaging software like this is the fact that it doesn't have ads. Second, the fact that it doesn't seem to limit your conversation history to a few weeks and try to get you to upgrade to increase the history limit is a nice benefit. Finally, it makes attaching files, screenshots (just paste) and inserting illustrative GIFs simple.

    Cons

    I've noticed that sometimes there are not notifications for incoming messages (no ding, no visual indicator), and I've missed some time-sensitive requests from co-workers because of that.

    Value for Money

    Before using Glip, it was difficult to send messages and communicate across the company. Sure we had email and text messages, but there was no central hub for us as means to communicate. Emails get over flooded with important and unimportant emails, this software has been useful and I would recommend it to small sized businesses.

    Pros

    This software is really good to follow up with employees after given a particular task
    You can make groups, add attachments and set up a reminder to follow up
    Includes collaborative document editing, a team calendar, and PDF markup tools.

    Cons

    Honestly, I have been using glip on a daily basis since 1 year and have not come across any negatives for this software. They could definitely work on expanding the features

    It's free! It's simply included with RingCentral if you have them as your phone system. It has basic features and would be useful for any organization that hasn't implemented Slack.

    Cons

    I don't see Glip replacing Slack for companies that currently use Slack. The free version of Slack has more features and a lot more plugins. There really is no current compelling feature of Glip over Slack. There also isn't any true integration into RingCentral phones system out side of a button to open Glip.

    Cons

    It takes a lot of time to refresh, and it takes a long time to render gif. It cannot change group's name.

    It has helped our team improve our workflow and productivity, would recommend to any agency which works on various different tasks in different areas.

    Pros

    It has made day to day task logging, accountability and organisation improve in our department and given it's an add on with our RingCentral package, it also acts as a handy communication tool too. It has all the features you would need to help improve the productivity of your team.

    Cons

    Only one annoyance is how it displays the completed percentages of tasks - but that's very minor as doesn't effect the end output of the product.
