Quill works with any phone number, email, or contact.

Add any phone number, email, or contact to start direct message. Add multiple people to start a group, or add a channel to start a new thread. For phone numbers, we’ll proxy the conversation via SMS, so they can respond seamlessly without downloading Quill.
