    Monitor multiple chats at a time

    Multi-chat view gives you a full picture of your active conversations. Pin important chats, respond to messages, share files with colleagues, and make calls, all from the same Cliq window. Plus, easily switch to single-chat view when a conversation requires your undivided attention.

    Work together, even when you're apart

    Cliq simplifies remote communication for the hybrid workplace. Use the Remote Work view to find out who's available and who's busy, on a call, or on leave before you reach out to them.

    Work smarter with contextual suggestions

    When your discussions involve decisions and to-do lists, Cliq presents thoughtful suggestions to help you take action. It can help you set reminders, save calendar events, send follow up emails, and even call someone directly from the chat window.

    Work smarter with contextual suggestions

    Connect from anywhere with online meetings

    Collaborate with your team through audio-only and video meetings. You can host up to 10,000 participants, record sessions for future reference, and take control with the option to mute attendees, monitor screen sharing, and set meeting permissions.

    Stay on top of your schedule

    Take notes, schedule events, and assign time-sensitive tasks to your colleagues. All notes are synced with Zoho Notebook, events are reflected in Zoho Calendar, and tasks can be integrated with Zoho Projects.

    Build apps and run them in Cliq

    Use the power of the cloud to build apps that suit your business needs. Deluge, Zoho's proprietary scripting language, allows you to construct apps from scratch, automate your workflows, and fetch data from external apps through simple tools like bots, commands, message actions, and functions.

Hear what former Slack users have to say

"A great thing about Cliq is how everyone can be a part of a company-wide channel! Cliq channels have streamlined our internal support requests and it's easy to manage. The Poll Bot is handy to run company wide surveys and collect everyone's opinions easily. We have custom-built bots that post alerts whenever that's an issue we need to look into and this has made our workflow so much easier."

- Takeyoshi Nakayama, Solutions Engineer, Human Sciences

"Zoho Cliq is natively integrated with all Zoho products, which makes it easier for us to use. We also rely heavily on the Zoho Desk and Zoho Projects integrations to help us with reports, task updates, etc. We use Cliq channels to discuss new projects and collaborate easily."

- Hemad, IT Administrator, GameVision

"I've ensured that we use Cliq for all official internal communications. Wherever possible, we've switched from internal emails with endless reply threads to Cliq, for instant collaboration and delivery."

Team Everest

"We use Cliq on an everyday basis in our center. We have numerous channels with a lot of discussions going on. The biggest benefit of Cliq for us is the message"


"We started using Cliq at a team size of 20. We’ve grown from 20 to 120 active users on our Cliq community and steadily growing. It’s been a seamless journey to use Cliq in different aspects of our organisation."
