10 Tips to make your communication app less annoying

Due to the pandemic and consequent growth of remote work, there is widespread use of communication apps. Slack and Microsoft Teams dominate this category. These apps include features to chat, video conference, and share files with other team members, no matter where they are located.

What started out as a convenience, however now has become an irritant. These apps constantly force you to pay attention to the chatter going on in their channels, even though many of the communications are of little importance to you. Getting constantly distracted reduces productivity as you don’t get any space to do deep thinking and concentrate on the tasks at hand.
