Cool Tool: Yac

Monday, March 1, 2021

Many workers value the increased flexibility that comes with working from home. Yac is a communication tool that builds on that perk and can help teams work together asynchronously.

The idea behind the platform is to reduce the number of focus-threatening meetings and enable participants to collaborate at their convenience. When interacting on Yac, users can post voice messages and share screens in one-on-one exchanges or with a group. The collective use of the tool could mean fewer surprise interruptions and increased productivity for teams.


The platform also has key benefits that can simplify work life. For example, users can search their history of voice messages, enabling them to quickly locate notes from a previous exchange with colleagues.

Yac's base version enables users to have unlimited connections and exchange unlimited voice messages at no cost. Upgrades to the service unlock additional tools that can be helpful for teams, such as screen and camera recording and access to a desktop version of the app.
