- Fixed: The autocompletion menu, which was not appearing when typing @ on a new line, is now appearing when typed on a new line.
- Fixed: When receiving a notification in a thread you haven’t already viewed in the app, you will now be taken to that thread. Which is a significant improvement from the previous experience, which was the app crashing.
- Fixed: The search icon (the magnifying glass) was extremely hard to find in certain color themes, which was somewhat ironic. Now it will change colors to be more visible, depending on your color scheme, and thus be more findable, as is apt.
- Fixed: Sending messages over a spotty connection could cause Slack to crash. That’s now fixed, and we’ll keep working to make Slack easier to use in low-connectivity.
- Fixed: If you commented on a file, then immediately shared it to another channel, Slack, overwhelmed, would fall over. We’re better than that.
- Fixed: Toggling quickly between “away” and “available,” was sometimes leaving you with the wrong status. Basically, you were in, you were out, you were in, out; in, out: it shook us all about. We did some careful coding, and we’ve turned ourselves around. And that’s what it’s all about.
- Fixed: Where users couldn’t sign in with a longer org name of more than 21 characters, they now can, because after all, what’s in a name? (Spoiler: it is “sometimes more than 21 characters”)
- Fixed: Trying to upload multiple images at the same time will no longer cause a crash.
- Fixed: Tapping on a bot or app icon with no network connection could cause the app to crash. Contrary to appearance, this was not the first sign of the robot uprising, just a bug.
- Several obscure crashes, including one that could occur when the app encountered a link to a message also in Slack. This was a step of humility too far. So we fixed it.
- Group conversations were not sending notifications as often as they should. Now they correctly respect the notification settings you’ve set, and should therefore get lost less often.
- Slack now officially, and fully, supports Japanese. Along with the already available French, German, Spanish, and, of course, English (of the US variety).
- Forgot to select an autocomplete result when mentioning someone? We’ll try to select the right person for you automatically. Less tapping, more working.
- We added a new, simpler way to sign into all workspaces associated with an email address.
- Handful of trifling bug fixes too small for the human eye.
- On devices with Android Oreo, our launcher icon is now adaptive. Which means that it is either a circle or, apparently, a “squircle” depending on the device you’re using.
- Fixed an issue where we would display empty attachments for some App Integrations. The attachments were not empty. Now, the displays aren’t either.
- Previously, some folks were left with a crash when tapping the up-navigation button, and what went down was not right. So we fixed it (up).
- Fixed: A sneaky issue where the "User is typing" text was hard to read because of the light text color.
- Fixed: The Unread Badge for a Direct Message was sometimes sticking around, even if you’d read it. Now what’s read remains read, until there’s something new to read.
- Fixed: When a workspace admin has restricted who can use @-here and @-channel, we no longer let people use @-here in messages or file comments. As you might have expected to begin with.
Want to see *your* favorite bug featured in this list? We would too. Send along any feedback to email@example.com, and we’ll see what we can do.
- When adding channel topics or purpose, you can now use any standard message formatting, be it bold, italic, links or usernames.
- We’ve added support that means you can disable the ability to comment on files in Shared Channels - for quick diffusion of multi-workspace confusion.
- When you got two messages, you weren’t receiving a notification sound for the second one. You now will.
- Somehow, we had stopped showing Today / Yesterday / Tomorrow in attachments that contained a date. Now you’ll always know what day it is (or rather, what day it was, when the attachment was uploaded).
- Slack is now fully available in French, Spanish and German, down to the very last emoji.
- Also, we added support for a brand new way of working with external companies from within Slack.
- AND a whole new way of handling name tagging in order to handle the exciting world of challenges brought by the two things above. Phew.
- Fixed: Newly-created group conversations mysteriously missing from the Drawer will now appear there once again.
- Fixed: User Groups (like @engineers, @designers, or whatever groups you’ve created) which were not showing up in the message input autocomplete, now are.
- Fixed: Some people running Android O were experiencing a crash on start-up. No more.
- Fixed: When returning to a thread from the archive view, we now remember your scroll position, and return you to it accordingly.
- Fixed: In an unwanted buy-one-get-one-free feature, people using Android O were getting notifications twice.
- Fixed: In an unwanted buy-one-get-one-free feature, people using Android O were getting notifications twice. We just wanted to do it one final time in case you were, for some reason, enjoying it. The number of notifications has been reduced to a more desirable 100%.
- We removed support for Twitter and EmojiOne emoji styles on Android, we know some people used them, and we salute you with the emoji of your choice - but they were very large. Fewer emoji styles = a smaller app for everyone.
- Previously, you couldn’t see your own email when viewing your profile. You now can. If, for some reason, that is something you want to do.
- “Oh no I pinned that by mistake!” Good news: You can now unpin a message by long-pressing and selecting that function from the list.
- New: In side channel details, you’ll find a natty new Edit button allowing you to easily change the topic or purpose of the channel, or, if you have the ability to change the Channel name itself.
- Fixed: If you wanted to set a reminder on a message that had been broadcast back to channel from a thread, you were foiled. Success is now yours.
- Fixed: Tapping on a magic link no longer runs the risk of causing a crash - if nothing else, it wasn’t the kind of magic we intended.
- Fixed a bug where animated custom status emoji, which should be paused, were animating. Moving forward there will be zero tolerance for the undead, at least in this context.
- Handful of crash fixes. More than a spoonful, less than a bucket full, all good.
- Fixed: We were not respecting the 'plain text only' emoji style. Henceforth, we promise to always respect your right to an emoji-free experience. :pinky_swear:
- Fixed: Sometimes, when sharing a Snippet in Channel, we displayed a blank profile avatar. No more. Snippet where snippet is due.
- Fixed: The ginormous emoji displayed on some devices when setting status was, remarkably, unintentional, and has been rectified.
