  • Channel recaps and thread summaries: No more spending hours catching up with unread group messages as Slack AI is here to make it quick and easy with channel recaps. This feature will enable users to get a “quick rundown of what's happening.” It will help you catch up with all the necessary details and provide you with a detailed thread summary. The summaries will provide users with the “gist of a long conversation.” Additionally, Slack AI also helps users find the right person to whom they need to respond.

Slack AI will also work on the third-party integrated apps to get summaries from various relevant apps. The Verge reported that Slack is also working on bringing its own AI chatbot, Einstein Copilot which will help users write appropriate and professional messages. Also, note that Slack AI features are only available for Slack Enterprise users.
