Alternative to
Hallway Slack App

Virtual Hallway Meetings

Everybody who has worked in an office knows: the imporant and interesting information is exchanged on the hallway.
Hallway encounters are a great way for informally talking about current projects but also to simply getting to know your team mates better when you talk about your weekend activities. Such short conversations keep the team together.

Pixar most famously even built their office in such a way that people need to pass the lobby when they want to go to the bathroom. Why? Because then employees from all deparments will randomly meet regularly.
This is exaclty what chat roulette apps like Macarons do for remote and distributed teams: they create a virtual hallway. And just like in Pixar's office, virtual hallway apps make sure, people from all teams meet randomly, tying all employees together.

Hallway, as the name says, is a Slack app for virtual hallway encounters.
However, we think Macarons is a great alternative to Hallway.

Macarons vs. Hallway

Hallway is an app for Slack to have your team take virtual breaks.

If you have a smaller team and want to make sure they take regular breaks together in order to keep up concentration and improve team spirit, Hallway might be a good choice for you.

Do you have a larger team and want to encourage team building? Or is your goal to connect people from different departments who rarely meet? Then Macarons is a better and cheaper alternative to Hallway.
