RingCentral is the official communications tool used by Joomla.
It's available as an online app, as well as desktop versions and mobile apps.
You may often hear or see it referred to as Glip, which is the original name of RingCentral's initial chat product.

Joining a Team
What you might call Groups or Channels on other communication tools are called "Teams" on RingCentral.
When you log into RingCentral, you can use the Search at the top of the window to search for Public Teams.
To add other teams, or view the available list of teams, on the side bar in RingCentral click on the Contacts icon. You can then browse users to start direct message conversations, or look through the list of teams to join the ones that you want to participate in.
RingCentral also has a private teams feature. These are used in Joomla to create Official Team groups. When you are onboarded onto a Joomla Official Team, let your team leader know you're on Glip and they'll then add you to the official team channel.
