Google has a new tool for you that is very similar to TikTok, but for work. Threadit has the right to make remote work easier and more efficient and will allow users to send small recorded videos, such as Instagram Reels or TikTok, to team members. You can use this to communicate any progress you have made to work or a project you are working on with others in the team. A new Google tool is available on the browser and as a Chrome extension.
Google believes that videos are a better way to communicate with other team members, especially for those who may find it difficult to communicate their point via emails or text messages.
Threadit also eliminates the need to hold live meetings to communicate via video and this allows employees across time zones to work to times that are appropriate to them rather than sticking to a single area- time.
“I would send Threadit to my colleagues in Japan during my normal working hours in Seattle; they would respond in the hours worked for them in Tokyo. Threadit helped us feel like we were working together in person, even though we were responding at different times from around the world – it built links that email couldn’t. The best part? No one had to get up early or stay up late, ”Keller Smith, Founder and General Manager, Threadit, explained in a blog post.
Google explained in its blog that Threadit will help you say and show more with video messaging compared to what you can provide via email or chat. And you also don’t have to make it live.
You can use Threadit to show other players how you have progressed on a project, ask questions and also ask for feedback without having to coordinate records. The best part is that it can eliminate the need to hold live meaningful meetings for small conversations. A feature like this also gives users more time to think, work in a more focused way and if a meeting eventually needs to be scheduled, it will be more efficient.
Threadit also allows users to record a few short clips and link them together to create a single video message, you can record your screen as well. Once your video is ready, you can share it with others via a link and anyone you share it can reply to the video message once they are ready. All the answers appear as one conversation.
Google said in the blog that they built Threadit while working remotely last year and the team at Area 120, which is Google’s promotion division, was behind it. The aim was to make remote work more efficient and easier.
