Spike is more than just a super-powered Inbox. It’s a total productivity and collaboration workspace. With so many ways to communicate these days, we know there’s more to keeping in touch than email and text, which is why you can easily make audio and video calls straight from your Spike workspace. Read on to learn more.
Who can you call?
Spike offers two ways of audio and video communication:
The first one, is a built in video/audio calls platform, which lets two Spike users video/audio communicate within Spike.
The Second one, is a free online video conferencing platform, that even lets multiple non-Spike users communicate with each other. There’s no participant or time limit, and all anyone needs to join is the link. To learn more about Spike’s online video conferencing platform, please visit this link.
