This was where I struggled with it. Our intra-team communication needs were pretty solidly met by slack, and I couldn’t find a separate use case big enough to justify having my team in both platforms.

The live video argument you make is an interesting one. It’s not often that I need that at the team level but at the company level I could see that being a big help globally. I’m interested to see how Workplace does. I’m not 100% sold on the need yet, but I’ve been wrong before.
