What's New in the Latest Version 24.06.20

Last updated on Jun 12, 2024
Old Versions
Bug Fixes
• “Purple haze all on my screen / Gray text on top of aubergine / Don’t know just who’s to blame / Can’t make out any channel names!” In contrast to our many accessibility features, the default Aubergine theme was rendering low-contrast text on iPad that was rather difficult to read. Excuse us while we kiss this bug goodbye.
• The channel count within the search feature (visible by tapping “Jump to or search,” and then tapping the “Channels” filter) was—to put it plainly—wildly inaccurate. There are innumerable ways to use Slack to further your business; channels should be decidedly more numerable.

What’s New
• Sometimes all you need are the highlights—that’s why we’re introducing the Recap feature from Slack AI. Recap lets you choose specific channels to be automatically summarized each day, so you can get the bottom line at the top of each morning. Think of it like a “Previously on…” segment from your favorite series. And now, on with the show!

Bug Fixes
• If you were logged in to 15 or more workspaces, you may have noticed a significant lag when switching between them. Congratulations on discovering our patented method of getting you to take a quick break, since clearly you’re working too hard! We jest, of course; it was merely a bug. But do remember to pace yourself.
• Keywords were not being highlighted when they appeared next to a punctuation mark, such as at the end of a sentence. While this wasn’t one of our personal highlights, the key word here is “Fixed.”

Bug Fixes
• When closing a direct message (by tapping the name at the top of the screen, then scrolling down and pressing “Close Conversation”), the screen would wipe but not actually remove the DM from view. Instead of metaphorically closing the book on a discussion, it was more akin to closing a sliding glass door, then continuing to awkwardly stare through it. We’re all about transparency, but we’re glad to see this bug get marked “Closed.”
• VoiceOver was refusing to read the names of custom emoji in the emoji picker, rendering those one-of-a-kind wonders inaccessible, non-selectable, and all around un-emojible. Your custom emoji are once again free to emote. Enjoy your bespoke buddies.

What’s New
• This week’s is not a huge update, but let that not convince you it’s unimportant. They can’t all be red-letter days (or updates), but each day we’re here is a good one. This update is a good one too.
24.05.10
Apr 30, 2024
Bug Fixes
• Fixed: Accepting a Slack Connect invitation when not already signed in to Slack should have resulted in a warm and inviting login screen. Instead it was producing a vague and unsettling error screen. The former has been reinstated; the latter has been abandoned. Fear connection no longer!
24.04.40
Apr 25, 2024
What’s New
• Say hi to Slack AI! Our brand-new set of generative AI tools lets you search smarter, summarize conversations instantly, and much more. Head over to the Help Center to see how you can put Slack AI to work for you: https://slack.com/help/articles/25076892548883-Introducing--Slack-AI

Apr 18, 2024
Bug Fixes
• Fixed: Did you notice that custom status suggestions for your org were showing up on desktop but not mobile? Turns out things were just a little dis-org-anized on our end. Ha ha. Ha. No, but we’re sorry.
• Fixed: In some messages sent by apps that incorporated block quotes, the message text was not indented and overlapped with the left-hand border. Many thanks for your understanding as we work to get all our ducks (and words) in a row.

What’s New
• Is it something in the air? A certain je ne sais quoi that’s hard to put a finger on? The world seems brighter, music sounds sweeter … what could it be? The Slack app has been updated, and we can neither confirm nor deny that we’re responsible for any lightness that descends upon you.

What’s New
• [ERROR: RELEASE NOTES NOT FOUND] Wait, that can’t be right… Okay, it’s true that we don’t have any specific fixes to call out this time around, but we always want to use this space to let you know we’re constantly working to improve the app. And also to send you some good vibes. Hope your April is off to a great start—no foolin’.
24.03.40
Mar 27, 2024
What’s New
• We’ve been working hard behind the scenes to make sure everything is polished, well-oiled, and running as it should be. If you notice anything to the contrary, as always, let us know at feedback@slack.com!
24.03.30
Mar 20, 2024
Bug Fixes
• Fixed: If your language was set to Chinese, Japanese or Korean, scheduled messages that included “@-channel” or “@-here” mentions saw them eventually rendered as “@...” While ellipses undoubtedly heighten the drama, they leave far too much to the imagination. With this bug fixed, you’ll now find proper mentions here, there and everywhere.
24.03.20
Mar 13, 2024
What’s New
• We’ve updated the iPad search experience to bring it in line with recent changes you may have noticed on the iPhone. In addition to a brand-new coat of paint, you can now run searches from the “Jump to…” menu (and find channels and DMs from the Search tab), so everything you need is a mere hop, skip and a jump away.
24.03.10
Mar 6, 2024
Bug Fixes
• A bug in message scheduling meant that you could only schedule messages to go out after the current hour. 11:02 a.m.? Ooh, sorry—you’ll have to wait till noon. As thrilling as it was to simulate the experience of missing your train, you’ll now be able to schedule messages for as soon as five minutes into the future.
24.02.40
Feb 28, 2024
What’s New
• We’ve sanded down some rough patches in the app so as to avoid any digital splinters. Did you know “digital splinters” were a thing? They are now, but they aren’t anything you’ll need to worry about.
24.02.30
Feb 21, 2024
What’s New
• Welcome to your weekly catch-up with Slack. Today’s new feature: “Catch Up.” Triage unread messages in an instant by swiping to mark as read and sending quick replies inline. And for those moments when your thumb goes rogue, there’s even an Undo button. There’s no catch—try using Catch Up today!
24.02.20
Feb 14, 2024
Bug Fixes
• In a move we’re calling “the worst kind of surprise party,” the app icon was failing to display a badge when you had unread messages until after you opened the app. Nothing like starting the day in a panic over messages you didn’t know you had. You should have seen the look on your face. No but really, we’re very sorry about that.
24.02.10
Feb 9, 2024
Bug Fixes
• Let’s say you’re invited to a party that specifically states “No gifts,” but you show up with an immaculately wrapped empty box. That’s sort of what was happening when the app was allowing you to download blank email attachments even after file downloads had been disabled by admins. Let’s just tie a bow on this and say that no downloads of any sort will take place when that setting is in effect.
24.01.50
Jan 31, 2024
Bug Fixes
• When canvas comments came up in search results, eagle-eyed folks noticed that a lock icon (like that of a private channel) appeared instead of the canvas icon. Is a canvas technically a private channel? Are hot dogs sandwiches? If you clean a vacuum, do you become the vacuum cleaner? While many mysteries remain, we unlocked the solution to this particular quandary.
24.01.40
Jan 24, 2024
What’s New
• We tidied the shelves, cleaned the windows and ran a white-gloved finger over every flat surface. Just a little routine maintenance to ensure that everything is shipshape. Full steam ahead!
24.01.30
Jan 17, 2024
What’s New
• Consider this the intermission between acts in a dazzling stage show—a minor release that allows us to tidy the aisles and refresh the patrons before the curtain rises once more. Put another way, this update has only very minor fixes and improvements, but we are setting the stage for what’s to come (lobby lights flashing off and on).
24.01.20
Jan 10, 2024
Bug Fixes
• All bugs that were fixed in this release were too small for the eye to see or too fiddly for human words to describe. Nevertheless, work was done, things were tinkered with, and the app became a teensy bit better.
24.01.10
Jan 3, 2024
What’s New
• New year, new app! This year’s resolution is to steadily improve Slack with each update (we promise not to abandon it some time in February). To that end, this version contains minor fixes and improvements to suit the calendar turning to 2024. Here’s to Slack, and all of us, getting a little better each day.
23.12.21
Dec 15, 2023
Bug Fixes
• We’ve tinkered with the internal workings and polished some rough edges. The app is now better than it was.
