- Thanks to a few tweaks to the engine, a polish of the pistons, and recalibrated valves, the app should be running smoother and faster, than before.
- Spellcheck, revamped, is now a much better version of its old self (and back on Linux, to boot) — now it supports Greek, Portuguese and British English. So now spelling correctly should come more naturally to us all (which is good, because “correctly” can be a difacult word to spell).
- For a quicker connection, and less frustration, checking for network connectivity is more reliable than it was before.
- After uploading a video into Slack some found it would give an infinite circle of loading, but not play, which was never our plan. Now: it works! It plays; no more circle! Because, it turned out, all circ and no play made Slack a null ‘ploy.

- Videos in channels were found to be the cause of a minor (but annoying) memory leak that has now been well and truly plugged.
- We’ve spruced up the notifications a little so now they’ll not only appear every time you need them to, they’ll also appear in whatever theme you’ve proudly decked your sidebar out in. Not too shabby.
- When opening your computer, the app is now, thankfully, more likely to launch properly every time.
- If opening Slack from a shortcut on your desktop or menu had become a thing of habit, you’ll know that we broke it recently. We’re really sorry. It works again now.

- We’ve tinkered with the internal workings and polished some rough edges. The app is now better than it was.
8 July 2019
- Slack is now a little faster, thanks to a few small but important changes.
- Dragging and dropping files into Slack is now much more stable.
- If you ever do need to reset the app’s data, this now works better. A bit better, at least.
- We’ve improved the alignment of team icons in the sidebar for people in lots of workspaces. It’s a small thing, but much more aesthetically pleasing.
- In a Cinnamon desktop environment, the Snap Slack app was missing a dock icon. We’ve found it and put it back where it belongs. (In the dock.)
- Hardware acceleration can now be turned off without foregrounding Slack. If you know what that means, then you know it’s handy. If you don’t – it still is! Best to carry on reading.

- Just as day follows night and winter gives way to spring, so have we updated Electron to 4.2.1.
- The push notification time between desktop and mobile has been changed for the better.
- Like stability? Us too. So we’ve fiddled about with things and now everything is more stable in our app.
- We’ve updated the RPM icon dependency for better a availability and icon experience. Because you’re worth it.

- Launch (and hide) on login have been improved and are now just… better.
- Pressing “Control+Shift+V” would cause copied text to paste twice. We’ve fixed that.
- Pressing “Control+Shift+V” would cause copied text to paste twice. We’ve fixed that. In Slack.
- Some teams were experiencing an issue where icons that belonged to other signed-in teams were appearing rather than their own. This was very confusing. Sorry about that.
- Unhelpful keyboard and cursor actions that some people were experiencing have now, thankfully, been fixed.
12 March 2019
- When you sign in, you’ll now do it via your browser rather than in the app.
- The new loading animation was a little stretched, or a little squished, depending on how you looked at it. It’s practically perfect now.
- Occasionally, the “Open the Slack app” browser button would not open the workspace in the desktop app. Silly, really. It does now.
- If you use SSO (single sign-on) to log in, it should now work perfectly every time.
