Well integrated, versatile and easy to use chat software
Comments: Communicating with Zoho Cliq feels effortless and intuitive. You can chat, make video/phone calls and more.
Pros: As a Zoho One User Zoho Cliq is a no brainer. It integrates incredibly well with the Zoho Suite and it's very easy to create new integrations with Zoho Creator. What I probably like best about Cliq is the 3 column layout that allows me to chat in 3 different chats at once.
Cons: The desktop app for Mac feels a bit like a browser version and has some quirks where you need to reload the app in order for it to work.

Slack-like chat, much cheaper and with some useful extra features
Comments: We moved to Cliq from Slack, as it included all the features we needed - but we didn't have to pay for them. The chats are logged in Zoho Connect as well. We use it for project chat, updates etc.
Pros: Integrates fully into the Zoho ecosystem, cheap, allows broadsheet layout, easy to use with external users
Cons: Occasionally buggy although Zoho continue to make improvements. Not as many native integrations available off the shelf and that means having to get developers for web hooks.

Can send a chat instead of using my phone to send a text. Sometimes it's faster.
Pros: Not just for chatting. Can send and view audio and videos, Send shared files and each team member can have their own account.
Cons: If I had to choose one thing I like least it would be I would like to see more emoticons. I like using them so more variety would be nice.

Group Meetings and Staying Uptodate
Pros: I loved that it carried over into all sections of Zoho, so I could easily stay uptodate with messages from other people in the offices, without having to keep switching to look at my emails or a different screen than I was working in. Keeps everything in one place. It also is quick to go straight to voice/video calls, and easy to make group chats with different people.
Cons: The quality of connections is not as good as other software in relation to video calls, but still alright. Nothing I would stop using it for.

Favorite tool in a Fully Featured Suite
Comments: Staying up to date on current projects and communicating with my team has never been easier. I recommend to my colleagues all the time!
Pros: Quick and easy communication. Segmented to channels to keep things organized. Well made and designed clients for Desktop and Mobile use!
Cons: Can feel a bit bloated at times. There are plenty of settings to fiddle with but I haven't had the need to.
