Glip vs Workplace

A better team collaboration app—for free.

Team using RingCentral to access video conferencing on cell phone and messaging on laptop

Fewer limitations, even on the free plan

Looking for a completely free online collaboration app? Workplace has some cool features, but what you’ll discover quickly is that some of the most useful functionality isn’t available in the free Workplace plan. For those features, you’ll need to upgrade to Workplace’s paid version. With Glip, on the other hand, many of these premium features are available for free.

One of the best Workplace alternatives

Team messaging

Message a group or individual in real time.

Video meetings

HD video with up to 100 participants.

Task management

Create, assign, and manage tasks in one place.

File storage

Oh, and did we mention you can store up to 15 GB of files?

Glip vs Workplace: See how they stack up

With the free Workplace plan, you’ve got a relatively limited set of app integrations and features. If you need to do more, you’ll have to upgrade to the paid plan. Your free Glip app, in contrast, gives your team access to a lot more.

Check out a side-by-side comparison below.

Real-time chat and group messaging
Unlimited messages
Unlimited file sharing and storage
Video calls
Screen sharing
Integrated task management
Integrated team calendar

Unlimited app integrations
API for custom integrations
24/7 live support

How many Workplace alternatives have all this for free?

Enterprise-grade features

Need access to Glip’s API platform for custom integrations with your company’s own tools? You can have it. Want to add notes right onto any file uploaded to Glip without altering the version of that file? You can do that too.

Crisp HD video meetings

Have one-on-one or group video conferences—with built-in security features like meeting passwords and host controls. And with Glip, you can collaborate through team messaging too. Create group threads for specific projects, chat with someone one-on-one, and even invite users from outside your company, like freelancers and clients, for free.

File sharing, screen sharing, and more

Of course, talking to or messaging someone is only one aspect of collaboration. Today, many teams need to be able to share documents and do screen shares on meetings too. Want to collaborate on a proposal? Review a new design mockup? You can do all of that in Glip without having to pay for and manage other tools.

Free live support

There are few things worse than needing help from a company and not being able to find it. With Glip you get award-winning customer service from our parent company, RingCentral, the leading cloud communications platform.
