Slack Mobile Gets a Dark Mode

Spigot, Inc. is really big on communication and collaboration and one of the ways we communicate is  Slack. Everyone has it on their phones and laptops and we’re all part of a ton of channels based on team and location where we can all keep in touch and make sure our products are running! Slack is about to get even better and  announced that it is starting to test a dark mode for users, joining others, like the mail app for Windows 10 and Facebook Messenger. It’s not available to everyone just yet, but it is rolling out to beta testers.

9to5Mac and 9to5Google spotted the iOS and Android updates, noting that the feature is currently being tested, and helpfully points out how to activate it for yourself. To get it now, you have to be part of Slack’s beta testing program which is something you can join. You can join by heading over to the app’s settings, and scroll down to the “Join Beta” section, which prompts you to provide your name and e-mail address. Once approved and you update your app accordingly, you’ll then have a toggle that will allow you to turn the mode on in settings. 9to5Google says that the Android app will prompt you to restart the app, whereas the iOS version will automatically switch.

An Android Q leak earlier this year revealed that Google is planning to roll out a system-wide dark mode, while a developer build revealed last month that Google Chrome will also get the option later this spring. The feature is increasingly popular with users, as it helps conserve one’s battery life, and it’s a bit easier on your eyes — not a trivial thing if you’re on Slack day in and day out during the work week.

Renovations Under Way at Spigot, Inc.!

What happens when you give a bunch of Spigot, Inc. employees boxes to pack for renovations? They make a fort and pile them to the ceiling (of course). We have been anxiously anticipating our new office – renovations started a few weeks ago and will be completed in April. Our office is almost completely empty and for the next two weeks everyone is either travelling, working from our other offices, taking vacations or working from home!

Not only are we getting some serious upgrades to our office, we’re redesigning our logo, getting new signs/swag, 100 standing desks and a whole new kitchen! Stay tuned to see the final result!

Three on Three Ping Pong

Ping Pong is so popular at Spigot, Inc. that employees are now playing 3 on 3 ping pong! Players have to rotate hitting the ball between 3 people instead of two like the traditional game of doubles and it gets intense. Looks like it’s time for Spigot to get another ping pong table! As you can see behind the table there is a giant white board – and of course, that’s used to keep everyone’s scores (Yes – we’re also all super competitive). A huge perk to working for Spigot, Inc. is the abundance of games we have in the office. Everyone is extremely competitive and there is something for everyone here. In addition to ping pong, there is 2 foosball tables, a dart board, Mario Kart, Super Smash Brothers and X-boxes and we’re always adding more!

Spigot, Inc. truly believes that breaks increase productivity, and getting mentally stuck is a road that leads to nowhere, so everyone is encouraged to take breaks when needed, so these games are a big contributor to our success.

Spigot, Inc. Takes on Barcelona for Mobile Conference

Last week a few members from our Spigot, Inc. Mobile team got the opportunity to travel to Barcelona and attend the Mobile World Congress Conference. The GSM Mobile World Congress is the world’s largest exhibition for the mobile industry, and incorporate a thought-leadership conference featuring prominent executives representing global mobile operators, device manufacturers, technology providers, vendors and content owners. It was extremely beneficial for us to be there because we got to meet new clients, develop new business relationships and learn about all the latest technology. There were a ton of mobile products, robots and smart cars. Of course – they also took the opportunity to do some team building on a few winery tours; Oller del Mas & Finca ca n’Estella, tried kava for the first time, caught a glimpse of Carnival AND they even got to take a client out to dinner at one of the top restaurants in the world: Manairo.

Today a few employees got together and took a walk to Jason’s Deli and (of course) free ice cream turned into a competition.

Breaks are welcome and necessary because getting stuck or burnt out isn’t productive.
