- You can now record video and audio clips right within Slack. Add some face time to your team updates, talk through feedback, or just say hello. Want to sing your portion of the stand-up? Best check with your manager on that one.
- The channel list just got a little friendlier. You’ll now see avatars next to your Direct Messages, and for those group conversations with lots of names, we’ve given you a bit more space to see just who it is you’re talking to.
- Channel sections can now be collapsed or expanded with a tap of your finger, making for a tidier, more focused experience.
- Fixed: File uploads were being prevented in Slack Connect channels, somewhat defeating the purpose of the whole “Connect” thing. Assuming the permission is enabled by your Admins, you may once again upload to your heart’s content.
2021 年 9 月 20 日
- Minor improvements have been made, and bug fixes taken place, but they’re the kind that are out of sight, behind closed doors, and quietly just doing their job, deep in the inner workings of the app, making things just a little bit better.
2021 年 9 月 7 日
- Fixed: Tapping the search option on the Android keyboard while an active search was already underway created a feedback loop of meta-searches, eventually concluding in a crash. Turns out the app didn’t like being faced with the existential crisis of having a search within a search. A question within a question. A void within a void. Where were we?
2021 年 8 月 23 日
- Fixed: While browsing emoji or searching for people on an older version of Android, the back button would temporarily become ineffectual. This has been fixed, and if you’re doing either of those things you can use the back button to hop back in time to where you were before. Look at you go!
2021 年 8 月 9 日
- This will be the last version of Slack that supports Android 6 and 7. In addition, starting on September 1st, you’ll need to be running Android 8 or later in order to connect to Slack. We know this is potentially frustrating news, but these minimum requirements are necessary in order to ensure Slack remains as secure and seamless as we built it to be. Thank you for your understanding.
- Fixed: Occasionally, attempting to switch workspaces by tapping the workspace icon would instead offer the option to sign out, the implication of which was rather rude. Roam if you want to!
- Fixed: Rotating the device while there was unsent text in the input field led to a crash, which was frustrating no matter which way you looked at it.
- Fixed: In some rare cases, tapping “Threads” would show an error message instead of the threads you were looking for. We’ve sewn up that tear so your threads are once again where you expect them to be.
2021 年 7 月 26 日
- We’ve made it much quicker to join Slack from a Shared Connect invite, because never does time move as slowly as when you are filling out forms in the shadow of the place you really want to be. Come on in; the channel’s fine.
- Fixed: You can now set a reminder for a “custom” time of your choosing. You always should have been able to, but our system got a little restrictive there for a minute. Want that “Make a wish” message to remind you at 11:11? The app is your oyster.
2021 年 7 月 12 日
- Fixed: Custom skin tones were not being respected in reacji, giving you the generic yellow version instead. Going forward, the emoji you choose will now be the emoji that's shared.
- Fixed: If you start a new message with a ‘>’ symbol, the message will be formatted as a block quote, just like it would be on our other platforms. You can (block) quote us on that.
2021 年 6 月 28 日
- Fixed: Links were not opening when Slack’s preferences were set to hand off to an external browser app, instead providing a vague and unsatisfying error message. This has been fixed, and the only thing vague and unsatisfying now is the ending to that screenplay we’ve been working on.
2021 年 6 月 14 日
- You know how sometimes you just become aware of how much tension you’re holding in your body, then take a deep breath and slowly let it out? This update is like that. It’s still Slack, just with a tiny bit less friction.
2021 年 6 月 1 日
- Fixed: If you had your settings such that images would not be automatically expanded, our “tap to expand this image” prompt would get mixed up with any text previews generated from a posted URL, leading to similar amounts of confusion as experienced when describing this bug.
- Fixed: If a direct message from a bot contained buttons, and you tapped the message to view its details, the buttons would no longer work. Broken buttons beget bitterness, but better buttons bring bliss.
- Fixed: In certain cases, muted channels would become unmuted, which was frankly quite rude. That which has been politely asked to remain quiet shall now remain dutifully mum.
2021 年 5 月 17 日
- Small thumb update (er, the update is small, but it applies to any size of thumb or appendage) — if you follow a link from one channel to another, swiping to the right will now take you back to the previous channel instead of the channel list.
- Did you know you can tap and hold on an emoji reaction to see who reacted to the message? Well if you didn’t, now you do. And if you already knew about that, go ahead and give it another go. We’ve made it dramatically easier to see who’s reacted to what. How dramatically? Eight years of theater school and a summer production of Hamlet.
2021 年 5 月 3 日
- Fixed: Long-pressing on the app icon to jump to a recent DM now actually takes you to that DM. We thought it would be better if our buttons actually did the thing we told you they would do.
2021 年 4 月 19 日
- If you’re well versed in Simplified or Traditional Chinese — or aspire to be one day — you can now use Slack in those languages. Set your language preferences in You > Preferences > Language & region.
- Fixed: For some people who have Slack set to a different language than their device, we incorrectly delivered a message about switching languages whenever they opened their Slack app. Our delivery owls have been retrained, so you should now only see that message when you manually change the language inside of Slack.
2021 年 4 月 5 日
- An emoji is worth a thousand words, and now you’ll be able to access them more easily: both the picker and search are now in the bottom sheet, and you’ll see more of them at a glance.
- Fixed: A pesky bug that used to show an incorrect number of reactions in the Mentions & Reactions tab (or worse yet, didn’t show the reaction at all) has been dutifully squashed. Or collected and gently put outside. Either way, it’s gone.
- Fixed: Tapping the microphone icon to search or switch to a new channel might’ve crashed the app if your device didn’t support speech recognition — which was quite the dramatic reaction. We fixed that, so now your device will instead send a polite alert if it doesn’t support speech recognition.
- Fixed: Now, instead of getting a blank look from Slack when you tried to type in a channel name that couldn’t be found, you’ll simply be told there are no results for that channel name. Which is far clearer, we hope.
2021 年 3 月 22 日
- Fixed: Marking a reminder as complete should give you a deep and profound sense of satisfaction, not an error message. Those errors are gone now, so you can keep blazing through your to-do list.
- Fixed: While you were crafting the perfect message, the slightest tap outside the keyboard would take you to a different place entirely. Now, we keep you where you are until you’re ready to leave.
2021 年 3 月 8 日
- Fixed: Group DMs were difficult to distinguish because the app would truncate the list of participants. Now it’s easier to see names when composing a message or looking in the quick switcher. You’ll know the names of everyone at the party before you walk into the room.
2021 年 2 月 22 日
- Fans of the workspace switcher, take note: First of all, we are flattered you consider yourself a fan of the workspace switcher. Chuffed, even. Second, we’re giving it a refresh, so you can better distinguish your workspaces and switch between them more easily.
- For some, search is the heart of Slack. Now, it’s also the feet, because search is moving to its own tab at the bottom of the app.
- Sharing files into Slack from outside Slack — say, from your photos app — is now much nicer than before. We’ll suggest DMs or channels for you, making it easier to share with just a few taps. Should things have always been this way? Yes! And so they are.
2021 年 2 月 8 日
- Fixed: Tapping a profile picture or username in a thread used to do nothing. We weren’t ignoring you; we’re just really into this show at the moment. Tapping a profile picture or username now opens that person’s profile.
