However, all of your numbered advantages are possible with XMPP as well.

There's always options, but just try to get your marketing guys, business people, CEO, and external partners to use your XMPP over the convenient Slack/Microsoft Teams/Discord installation.

It might work for you, but it's unlikely to go well for most.

If a software is a risk because of Javascript, using a web version of it makes no sense.

So now you're against using the web. Good luck with that.

I did once. It was fine. Have you actually tried it?

I'm against pressing anything into the web. The web is (broken, but) fine for what it wants to be. But your web browser is a glorified document viewer, not a decent hardware emulator. Just because something is possible and beginners, usually learning JavaScript :-), are able to solve (already solved) "problems" with it, there is still a big chance that it is not the best solution.

All I can do is point out the flaws and the alternatives. If the audience still decides to stick with their adoption, nothing's wrong with it. But nobody will think about the options if they only know one anyway.
