In a Slack workspace, work comes together in dedicated spaces called channels. Use channels to organise conversations about specific projects, subjects or purposes. You can browse and join existing channels in your workspace. If you don't see the channel that you're looking for, you can create a channel and add your teammates .
Tip: If you've received an invitation to share a channel with an external organisation, learn how to accept the invitation.
What to expect
You can't browse for private channels in Slack. To join,
you'll need to be added by one of the private channel's members. When you join a channel, you'll be added to the member list.
The notifications that you receive in a channel will depend on your preferences. If you like, you can adjust your channel-specific notifications at any time.
You can leave a public or private channel at any time and rejoin public channels if you need to. If you leave a private channel, you'll need to be added back by a current member.
Click on the plus icon next to Channels in your left sidebar.
Select Browse channels. Select a listed channel or type a channel name in the search bar.
Join channel or press Enter.
If you know the name of the channel that you want to join, type /join followed by # and the channel name in the message field and send the message.
Tap Home at the bottom of the screen.
Swipe right to open the main menu.
Tap to open the channel browser. Channels Search for a channel or select one from the list.
Tap Join channel.
Tip: To see who else is in a channel before joining from Slack on your desktop, click on the cluster of profile pictures to the right of the channel name at the top of your screen.
Note: Multi-channel and single-channel guests can't join channels without an invitation, and they can only browse or search for channels that they've joined.
