We live in Slack and also make healthy use of Google Meet and Zoom. Google Docs is used heavily for collaborative writing and planning. A few teams and team members also use Trello to manage individual and team tasks and projects. We also use Confluence for our internal knowledgebase and Jira to coordinate the work of our Design, Development, and Engineering teams. Finally we use CakeHR as our single source of truth for all things HR-related.

We use Slack and Trello for most of our communication.

Slack is great for time sensitive stuff: like quick opinions and coordinating things happening right now. Slack has a few advantages, but it's major drawback is that information can get lost very quickly across dozens of rooms, timezones, and quick conversations. Think about it this way: if what you're talking about is okay to be lost deep in Slack search, where no one will likely think to look for it (or assume that it's even been discussed), then it's cool to discuss in Slack.

Trello, on the other hand, is for everything else (processes, what you're working on, getting non-trivial feedback, documenting a discussion, etc.). It's major advantage is that it provides a permanent, easy to search, organized grouping of information. By default all boards are public and join-able — so you can dip into anything that interests you and see the discussions going on, or the discussions that have happened.
