And the service now has more than 1.25 million paying users. It had 930,000 paid seats in May.

Today Slack also said that Slack teams have installed 6 million apps (and that 6 millionth was task management app Trello). The free plan allows teams to have up to 10 free apps or service integrations.

Slack’s growth since the app’s launch in February 2014 is a modern illustration of hockey-stick growth. Many third party software sellers, including Google, have made their tools compatible with the service, and cloud services like Salesforce-owned Quip have taken steps to incorporate Slack-like functionality.

“Continued momentum on the Slack platform is an important sign of the expanding role we play in the business software,” Slack said in a blog post.

San Francisco-based Slack now has 650 employees.

Samsung’s phone-as-desktop concept now runs Linux

Samsung's DeX is a clever way to turn your phone into a desktop computer. However, there's one overriding problem: you probably don't have a good reason to use it instead of a PC. And Samsung is trying to fix that. It's unveiling Linux on Galaxy, an app-based offering that (surprise) lets you run Linux distributions on your phone. Ostensibly, it's aimed at developers who want to bring their work environment with them wherever they go. You could dock at a remote office knowing that your setup will be the same as usual.

It's not quite the same as your typical Ubuntu or Debian install. Linux on Galaxy launches through an app, and it's using the same kernel as Android itself in order to maintain performance. And it almost goes without saying that you'll really want a DeX setup, since most Linux apps are expecting a large screen, mouse and keyboard.

As it stands, you'll have to be patient. Linux on Galaxy isn't available right now -- you can sign up for alerts, but it's not ready for public consumption. Even so, this is good evidence that Samsung thinks of DeX as considerably more than a novelty feature. It may be a long, long while (if ever) before many people are using their phones as desktops, but Samsung is willing to gradually build up its ecosystem and eventually give you an incentive to take a second look.
