Public Slack Bridge

Matrix.org provides a public free Slack bridge, which is free to use forever but comes with some limitations:

This guide explains how to use the free Slack bridge from the Matrix.org Integration Manager to integrate your Matrix room with a Slack room.

Note that EMS offers a paid Slack bridge with more features.

It requires your homeserver to be able to federate with Matrix.org.

An EMS server is not required.
