Flock Launches World’s First Chat OS
Flock, which was launched in India around two years ago now has announced its entry into the U.S market. Earlier this year, Flock has done a data survey, which shows that more than 60 percent of users have reduced their email usage to half and almost 10 percent have done away with personal meetings. This significant data gave birth to a very innovative and unique product, The FlockOS, the world's first only Chat OS.
The Flock entered in the US for countering Slack, its biggest rival that entered the market two years ago and became a benchmark in business and team messenger application. Flock is a group messaging app, which is like other messaging apps like WhatsApp and Messenger yet it is restricted and customized for work environments.
World First Chat OS Features
Users can do video chat, share presentations, and organize discussions between different teams regardless of their locations. It provides an ease for teams and workplaces to seamlessly chat in a one-on-one or in a group. Other major enterprise chat applications such as Lync, are very cumbersome to configure and manage, may require IT support and basic installation costs will make even more expensive to use. Flock is absolutely free and easy to set up. It is also loaded with industry leading security standard TLS 1.2 traffic encryption, a secure Amazon's AWS data centers and has a very strict control over employee access to data.
Expectation From the Product
The CEO of Flock, Bhavin Turakhia, said that the new OS will allow developers to build true intuitive apps and integrate them with the core OS by using widgets. These include the attachment widget, sidebar widget and modal widget. The developers now can either use the customized apps within their organizations or publish it on Flock's App Store, making them available for all Flock users. FlockOS will deliver a consistent experience across all platforms including the web, desktop, mobile and tablets.
