Created by a fully-remote team, for remote teams Echo is designed to complement your existing tools, help you save time by avoiding unnecessary meetings, and feel closer together through the power of voice.
With built in speech recognition and history Echo helps your team stay on the same page and allows everyone to catch up on their time whether you are working across the city or across the world.
When you are Online messages will play automatically when they arrive for the natural flow of the conversation. When Focused, no notifications will be played and messages will queue for you to catch up on your own time. When you are away from your computer Echo will automatically set you as “Away” – and any new messages will then be added to a message queue and notifications will play to let you know you have a new message.
Voice messages play automatically after a "chime" from Echo.
Click to play messages at any time. Notifications are silenced.
Click to listen when you’re back.
In addition to one-on-one messaging Echo offers public and private channels for your team to collaborate around a topic or a project. Similar to Slack, you can create channels for any purpose and limit attendance to invitation-only.
Each company or team using Echo has its own workspace. Workspaces can only be joined by invitation and everyone in the workspace can see each other and chat directly or in channels. You can be signed into multiple workspaces at once.
Make sure everyone in the channel is caught up with the latest messages by seeing which message they listened to last.
Echo also has silent emojis to say “Hello", let your teammate know you'd like to chat, or react to something they said.
All your recent and frequently messaged Contacts appear in Speed Dial. A glow blue means they’ve left a message for you to hear. If you are signed into multiple workspaces at once you’ll find a unified Speed Dial above all of your workspace icons to easily access everyone you talk to across all of your teams.
You can send a message to your teammate even if they are offline. They will be notified about a new message and will be able to listen when they come back online. Nothing’s lost!
