The workplace chat app also works with Apple Watch, and lets users send smart quick replies with a single tap straight from their wrist.
The app is currently free and is used by over 2,000 companies at present.
According to a report in techcrunch, Kuanhua Hsu, principal at GREE Ventures, said: “We’re extremely excited to be investing in Pie as we were impressed by the strength of the team and their vision for mobile communication and collaboration. Messaging is of course a mega-trend that’s still evolving, particularly on the enterprise side, and we feel the Pie team is addressing a market, particularly amongst SMEs, that’s in-between consumer apps like WhatsApp and heavier enterprise software like Slack.
