What's New

The latest and greatest from Slack

We're always innovating to help businesses collaborate better and be at their most productive. Here's what's new in Slack for summer 2024.

Rocket ship blasting off launchpad

Be more productive, wherever you’re working

Pick the right GIF for every occasion

A GIF is worth a thousand words. Save time scrolling by adding a GIF right from where you’re typing.

Design your own canvas

Create and share custom canvas templates, whether streamlining processes across your org or making your own to get work done faster.

Add canvas to a workflow

The magic of no-code comes to canvas. Create, update and share canvases as a workflow step to make curating content even simpler.

Bring rich data to canvas

Connect canvas to systems of record and get the most recent information by automating info-gathering.

Build your own navigation

Customize your tab navigation to see (or hide) what's most important to you.

Catch up quick

Got messages? On Slack mobile, simply swipe through your unreads to get up to speed and back to work.

Celebrate your team

Share work anniversaries or recent new hire statuses to channel, so everyone can join the celebration.

Pair your calendar with Slack OOO

Forgot to set your status before PTO? No worries! Your status now automatically sets when you use the OOO responder on your calendar.

Secure, powerful tools for every admin

Bring the power of automation to Slack with enterprise tools

Our new developer portal, part of the Slack Developer Program, helps you create, test, deploy and manage your Slack apps.

Ensure Slack messages meet your compliance needs

Implement in-line data loss prevention (DLP) policies natively within Slack, without requiring a third party solution or custom development.

Understand how your teams are using canvas

An analytics dashboard offers insight into how many canvases are created, viewed, edited and commented on over time.

Extend message activity data to private channels

See how people have interacted in private channels with 50 or more people, so you know who a message reached and how people engaged.

Configure the app activity dashboard with metrics of your choosing

Better understand how apps are used across your org with new dashboard and activity metrics, customized to your business.

Granular channel manager permissions

Channel Managers can restrict who posts in channels, and who archives channels, giving them more control over who takes what actions.

More control for custom templates

Designate who has the ability to create canvas templates and publish across your org.
