If you’re unsure whether this applies to your organization, we recommend using the regular Slack app.
• Fixed: There’s no such thing as being too “matchy-matchy” when it comes to syncing app preferences. That is to say, using “Sync with iOS” under Preferences > Accessibility will now work as intended, making what you see in Slack agree with your system-level settings.
• Fixed: There’s no such thing as being too “matchy-matchy” when it comes to syncing app preferences. That is to say, using “Sync with iOS” under Preferences > Accessibility will now work as intended, making what you see in Slack agree with your system-level settings.
• Nothing to report this time. Well, nothing that you can see, but plenty going on under the surface. We’re working hard to make Slack better; this time it’s not so visible.
• Nothing major to report this week. Nothing minor to report either, as it turns out. Work is still happening, mind you—it’s just more the sort that happens behind the curtain in between scenes at a play. We’re quietly setting the stage for what’s to come.
• Fixed: Scheduling a message to send later was displaying a confirmation in every one of your channels and DMs (rather than just the one where the message would eventually appear). Turns out no one wanted to replicate the panic of accidentally hitting “Reply All” in Slack, so we’ll make sure those messages are a bit better targeted.
• We've made a number of improvements to our search interface. Why? To minimize the searching and maximize the finding. You'll find that keywords are highlighted, tabs are more cleanly formatted and the number of results found is displayed at the top of the list.
• No one enjoys the phrase “Have you tried turning it off and on again?” And yet sometimes the channel list was refusing to load without restarting the app. To the delight of support agents and users everywhere, this has been rectified.
• Fixed: If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. Unless of course your file upload failed due to poor connectivity, in which case Slack would refuse any second chances. The app will no longer let past mistakes define it, so you should see more success with retried uploads.
• When uploading a photo, pictures that you’ve marked as favorites in the Apple Photos app will now include a small heart in the upload preview. Clear UIs, full hearts, can’t lose.
• Fixed: Ironically, tapping the “+” icon was not displaying the full list of workflow commands in a channel. Because, in fact, additional commands were needed. Should have been a minus sign, perhaps.
• Fixed: The email icon was missing from emails forwarded to a Slack channel. In case you couldn’t tell from all the Re: Re: Re:s and inspirational email signatures, we’ve added back the icon just to be safe.
• Fixed: Trying to share or save Photoshop files previously resulted in a download error. If you took a screenshot of that error and Photoshopped it into a nice congratulatory message, you still wouldn’t have been able to download the Photoshop file, and we’re not sure why we’re suggesting that now.
• Fixed: If Slack was set to use the in-app browser, attempting to open a link that was inside a file preview didn’t do anything. The browser and previewer could not be in the same place at the same time, like Batman and Bruce Wayne or Mrs. Doubtfire and the guy who pretended to be Mrs. Doubtfire.
• Fixed: The Mentions & Reactions tab will now correctly distinguish between @mentions of your name and uses of your keywords, meaning you’ll no longer see “[person] mentioned you” when a teammate posts about tacos. Unless your display name is @tacos. Who are we to judge?
• Fixed: In orgs where a mandatory mobile browser is required, the app was still defaulting to Slack’s in-app browser during sign-in. This would lead to situations where the browser would attempt to auth, be denied, then give up and sulk without providing any alternative. The appropriate browser will now be used, so if you’re locked out it’s your fault now. Probably.
• Fixed: When viewing a file on iPad, the menu bar was not appearing, meaning you could not share the file, comment on it, save it for later, or any number of other actions. You could only stare at it, as if in an art gallery. We’re certain that every file you upload is an aesthetic marvel, but we also want to give you tools to work with it.
• Fixed: Tapping on a notification while viewing a long thread would sometimes overload the app, leading to an unscheduled power nap. Scales have been rebalanced, energy flow rerouted, and crashes politely declined.
• iPad users, rejoice—a major update this way comes. A new layout more closely resembles the desktop experience, the sidebar has been upgraded for improved organization and navigation, and we’ve added greater support for iOS accessibility options. Get the full rundown here: https://slack.com/blog/news/ipad-app-new-look-improved-functionality
• Fixed: Did you know you can use keyboard shortcuts with the iPad app? Well, now they work as intended! Use CMD + [ and CMD + ] to navigate back and forth through your recently-viewed conversations.
• Fixed: Changing a channel's description in the channel details screen would actually update the channel's topic, while changing the topic would update the description. We have ascertained that it is not, in fact, “Opposite Day,” which would be the only plausible explanation for such a thing. Additionally, Opposite Day is not a real thing. Or is it, and this denial is actually a confirmation? It is (it is not), so we did not fix this bug (we fixed it).
• When previewing a channel prior to joining, you’ll now see the channel description displayed with the channel name to provide a bit more context. For when you’re unsure whether #the-owls is a channel for ornithologists, insomniacs or fans of the show Twin Peaks.
• If you’re someone whose workday doesn’t start at 9 am (or if you find Slackbot alerts first thing in the morning to be less of a pick-me-up and more of a put-me-down), you can now choose when your “Tomorrow” or “Next Week” reminders will appear. Head over to Preferences > Notifications to set the default that works best for you.
• Fixed: Tapping on a message link from an app would always take you to the parent message, as opposed to a specific threaded reply. That was about as helpful as asking for directions to the Liberty Bell and being told it’s somewhere in Philadelphia. We took another crack at the design and recast it into something more appealing.
• A friendly heads-up: In order to keep up with the growing capabilities of newer operating systems, this is going to be the last version of Slack that supports iOS 13. You’ll still be able to use Slack, but to receive new updates you'll first need to upgrade to iOS 14.
• We fixed a host of small bugs around creating messages and lists with Korean characters. What is the proper name for a group of bugs? A bundle? A bandolier? We fixed a benediction of bugs.
• Ever reply to a thread only to realize you should have sent that reply back into the main channel? Us too. That’s why you can now retroactively share your threaded messages with the rest of the channel. Just press and hold on the message in question, then select “Send Reply to This Channel” to give it the attention it deserves.
• Menus, begone! Now you can turn that text into a hyperlink by simply highlighting and pasting your URL right on top of it. Same old words with a brand new tappable destination.
• The first time you send someone a direct message, you’ll now see their pronouns displayed at the beginning of the conversation. We hope it’s a small step that will help foster respect among colleagues.
• Fixed: Expanding the message composition view to full screen was not actually changing the size of the text box. It was an illusion, like those tricky pictures of vases and faces, or the idea of “just one more episode.” Enjoy composing on a larger canvas once more.
• Fixed: Starting a Zoom call in a channel by tapping the channel name and scrolling down to “Start a Call” was not working. At all. Not even the momentary ring of a canceled pocket dial, or an immediate hang-up like when you got dared to phone your crush at a sleepover. Well, now it works. Please Zoom responsibly.
• Fixed: When sharing a file to Slack from another app, Group DMs were missing names altogether, showing only blank spaces and commas. As exciting as it was to treat file sharing like the throwing of a bouquet at a wedding, sending messages at work requires a great deal more precision.
• Fixed: If you were viewing someone’s profile in the mobile app, we were sometimes displaying long and ungainly URLs instead of clean, tappable links. These did not spark joy, so we have tidied up with a spirit of gratitude.
• You can now sort your conversations by Recent Activity! Tap the button in the top-right corner of your Home tab to see the tidy new timeline.
• Expanding the message composition view to full screen was not actually changing the size of the text box. It was an illusion, like those tricky pictures of vases and faces, or the idea of “just one more episode.” Enjoy composing on a larger canvas once more.
• Some folks were reporting being stuck in an SSO loop, repeatedly being asked for authentication like the worst kind of merry-go-round. A dismal-go-round. You can now get into the app and off the ride.
• The “Call” option was missing when viewing a teammate’s profile. Contrary to popular belief, this was not due to an “always text before calling” design philosophy, but was simply a mismatch of code.
• Fixed: If you were viewing details about an app in your workspace and then tried switching to the Messages tab, the app would load for an uncomfortably long time. It was like a lengthy silence in the middle of a story, where you’re not sure if the speaker is pausing for effect, has lost their train of thought, or has become entranced by a squirrel passing by the window.
• Fixed: When the app was in dark mode, hyperlinks were displaying in a low contrast color that was hard to read. Dark mode was designed to make things easy on the eyes, not to simulate reading by candlelight, so we bumped the brightness up a few notches.
• If you’re running the new iOS 15, you’ll now see avatars for message senders on your push notifications. Because we all could use more friendly faces these days.
• Slack now integrates with iOS 15's Focus Mode, so that when you need a moment of calm and re-centering we will not knock-brush you right out of it.
• Sharing files into Slack from outside Slack — say, from your photos app — is now much nicer than before. You’ll see your teammates’ pictures, and their full names, so it’s easy to make sure you’re sending the right file to the right person. Should things have always been this way? Yes! And so they are.
• Fixed: The “Add a File” button will now work as you might have expected it to, adding files aplenty to your channels and DMs.
• Fixed: Folks who choose to auto-collapse images in Slack were occasionally seeing black squares in the place of delightful GIFs. No more! Now your GIFs will surprise, delight, and inspire, at least as much as any one GIF can.
• Fixed: Tapping and holding on emoji reactions now shows you the list of people who reacted. This is an improvement on its previous behavior, which was to crash the Slack app entirely.
• Fixed: If you were invited to an audio chat and accepted the invite on desktop, sometimes the mobile app continued to ring. It’s not your alarm, that was us. We’re very sorry for the extra ringing in your ears, and now things are back to normal.
• Fixed: Your app may have crashed while you were in the middle of formatting a message that had hyphens and spaces. We fixed this, so you can practice proper punctuation without pesky interruptions.
• Fixed: We can’t think of any references, cultural or otherwise, that involve swiping left. But now that it’s working properly again, you can swipe left to see the most recent channel.
• Fixed: On some phones, the emoji keyboard blocked the message input field, which was very frowny face. We’ve remedied the situation so now you can both write and emote in your input field, which is very smiley face.
• Maybe you’ve heard of Slack Connect, which reduces countless back-and-forth emails by letting you add partners, clients or vendors to a channel. Now, if your organization allows it, you can add another company to a new channel straightaway in the mobile app.
• Fixed: A picture is worth a thousand words. None of those words should be “This content can’t be displayed,” which was the case for some linked images in Slack. Images should now appear as intended, their word count fully intact.
• Fixed: Sometimes Slackbot or an app will send a message that is for your eyes only. A secret missive from the cybersphere. For some users, they were unable to copy the text of that message. This is now fixed, and you’re all free to copy the ephemera as you see fit.
• Fixed: Before, when you set a channel’s topic, we notified everyone with a message that ended with an extra period. We shouldn’t change punctuation rules just for kicks, and will no longer pepper these messages with prolific periods.
• Bugs were squished, performance was improved, work was done, and the result was good. Please enjoy Slack responsibly.
• New: For something you’ve read but need to come back to later, you can now mark a thread as unread! Hurrah! Long-press on the message you’d like to start from, and then select the option to mark unread from the menu. Yes, you’ve been able to do it with channel messages for a long time, but now, you can do it in threads too. Useful!
• You can now customize your notification preferences on a per-day basis, which is a fancy way of saying that you can now pause interruptions with Do Not Disturb down to the day. (Looking for a feature to pause interruptions from pets, kids, or package deliveries? We feel you.)
• Fixed: On mobile, some messages from apps would display with missing text. It certainly was not our intention to pull a vanishing act, so we’ve fixed that.
• Fixed: If you were in a workspace that required secondary authentication, then previews of notifications from that workspace were always hidden (even if you wanted to be able to see them). Now, the previews will show up like normal — as long as you’re currently authenticated. (You can also, as always, choose not to show previews of the messages).
• What’s new? Most things. We changed almost all of the things. So many things! Much change.
• Previously, it was complicated to get to the four main things people do on mobile. We’ve fixed this with a new nifty navigation bar at the bottom of the app containing: a Home view for your sidebar, DMs, (still listed most recent first), Mentions (for quickly catching up), and You (because you’re great) (and also because setting your status/preferences on mobile needed to be easier).
• The quickswitcher on the desktop app is wonderful, but we discovered an issue where people weren’t using it as much on mobile. So we made the Jump To box more prominent (and smarter) to fix this. Fingers crossed!
• It seemed bizarrely hard to create a new message in a channel or DM without finding that precise location first. With an application of logic, software engineering, and a new “Compose” button in the bottom right corner, this has been rectified.
• Our apologies to people who have been wanting to easily set reminders, start workflows or access favourite apps in channels and conversations — it was hard to work out how to do that on the move. A new lightning bolt under the message box now gives quick access to shortcuts, and thereby solves this age-old problem.
• And finally, it came to pass, as time went by, that in the old version of the app, there was a lot of swiping back and forth to get places. We’ve simplified that: Now,swiping right will reveal your workspace and preferences, and swiping left will get you back to the last conversation you were in. With this change in behavior, we hope to give you the powers of both omniscience and time travel. nbd.
• And yes. We know. Change is hard! All our fingers have all built up muscle memory, but after continually adding features and functionality over the years, we needed to step back and make sure things made sense. You can find more about these improvements in our blog post, and as always, we welcome your feedback. Thank you for reading all the way to the bottom. We appreciate it, and you.
• 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 tinkered with and the app became subtly better.
• 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.
• Tapping the “Tap to expand image” button was sometimes not, wait for it… expanding the image. It will now do the thing it promises. No more, no less.
• Using two-factor authentication, which is a brilliant idea in general for all things, was occasionally not working if multiple types of authentication had been enabled (app, sms, etc). Let nothing dissuade the security-minded: it now works seamlessly once more.
• Fixed: Sometimes, when sharing a file to Slack, some usernames appeared, very unhelpfully, as blanks in the list of Direct Messages, identifying your colleagues as “@ “, instead of say, “@jane”. This is now fixed.
• Fixed: Sometimes an app or bot would send a long message containing beautiful formatting and links. And sometimes, the formatting didn’t render correctly, or the links were untappable and that, we feared, risked angering the bots, as well as not being very helpful for the user. Now, the formatting is honored, tapping the links works perfectly, and the bots are, for now, placated.
• Fixed: Sending a “/me” command that contains an emoji resulted in a crash. /me had no idea this was a thing, but is glad that it’s fixed :relieved:
• Fixed: While on a call, people using bluetooth sometimes heard a loud noise not generated by the other people on their call. This was not a ghost, it was a bug (and is now fixed).
• Fixed: the /msg and /dm commands were not acting as they should, now work as expected. For those who didn’t know they existed or worked in the first place, they do, and weren’t, but now are.
• Fixed: When uploading an image or file from your camera roll to a channel, multiple channels appeared to be selected. Then you couldn’t deselect them. These shenanigans have been shut-down, and sharing works as it should.
• Fixed: @-mentioning a user in some languages caused that mention to show up twice. In any language, one mention per message is enough.
• Fixed: Translations for @channel and @here were broken in non-English languages. They now work once more in those languages, and continue to work in English. Just remember, everyone — if you’re going to @channel, please @channel responsibly.
• Fixed: Attempting to send a message that exceeded the character limit would show an error, and then delete all of the entered text. This was both hard to trigger (those limits are high!) but very frustrating. The limits still exist, but we now no longer clear everything in the message box.
• Fixed: After leaving a workspace, some users were unable to convince that workspace to leave their sidebar. It will now, gracefully, take its leave when asked to.
• Fixed: Trying to sign up with a password too similar to your email address resulted in a message that simply read “Error joining team”. We still want you to have a good password… but that error message will now be clearer about pointing that out.
• Fixed: It came to pass that typing, pasting, or otherwise entering a large amount of text into the app (the app in this case meaning “the Slack app”, hereafter referred to as “the app”) might cause that app to undergo issues that would take on the appearance of disappearance or dissolution or, in common parlance, it would appear to crash, and need to be restarted. This abdication of our sworn responsibility to take messages of differing length, from the very shortest (eg “k.”) to the very longest (albeit with an error explaining the imposed character limits of messages and the need to curtail said message), was careless, if not derelict, in our duty, and we have thereby rectified it with an application of technological code that will forthwith allow the entering of large amounts of written matter in the message box of Slack, the app, without risk of unexpected app closure, thus giving free rein to the celebrated verbosity and eloquence of our users in allowing them to enter as large an amount of text as their heart desires, albeit with the expectation that one too long may result in the error message listed several items (perhaps screens?) above this one. TL;DR: The app was previously sometimes crashing like we had some kind of problem with long pieces of text. We really don’t.
• Fixed: Workspaces were sometimes showing a default workspace icon (a letter on a colored background) instead of the nice custom icon they had been given. Behold: they are beautiful once more. Or, at the very least, correct. Which is sometimes all we can aspire to.
• Fixed: Some complex URLs were incorrectly being treated like email addresses. They will now be treated… wait for it… like URLs.
• Fixed: In a message from a bot, buttons and menus configured to respond to a user’s actions weren’t actually doing that. This was not the first stage in a robot uprising: it was merely a bug. And is no more.
• For those who love to format their messages on the move, good news, you can now get that done in a few clicks using the new formatting tool in the message field.
• Fixed: When loading messages containing a lot of custom emoji, the app was sometimes getting overexcited to the point of paralysis. We have chilled the app out, and this should no longer happen. Emoji away.
• Saving a file from Slack, and then attempting to open it from the Files app was occasionally causing the app to crash (which was bad). It is now causing the file to open (which is better).
• The size of text is now controlled in the Accessibility settings of your iOS device rather than inside Slack. We used to have a separate preference for it inside the app, but it makes a lot more sense that you would want to have the same size text whatever you’re reading.
• Fixed: Attempting to reorder your workspaces would occasionally result in them ending up in a completely different order than the one you put them in. The order in which you put them? Either way, they no longer belie your reasonable commands, and will fall into line as requested, no longer out of order.
• A natty new icon in the top left corner of the app will show the number of notifications you have in your current workspace, as well as taking you to the sidebar, where you can swipe between your channels and conversations, as before.
• Fixed: Sometimes, attempting to delete a message that had failed to send (due, usually, to low connectivity) in was itself, failing. Doubling down on things is great — but not, perhaps, when that thing is “failure”. Now when some things don’t work, the other thing will.
•Fixed: The “Aubergine Classic” theme was using the color scheme for the new, (perhaps future-classic) Aubergine theme. We have reverted to classic-classic.
•Fixed: Sometimes, when we tried to show a long message in a dialog window, it would show a blank window instead, which is basically the opposite. Sometimes things are said best when one says nothing at all. This, however, was not one of those times. So we fixed it.
• Dark mode users who launched the app for the first time were met with a bright white screen. That was… not optimal. Our sign-in screens now match the rest of the app.
• All the default sidebar themes are now dark mode compatible — so when you shift into dark mode, your default theme will subtly shift to complement it.
• Fixed: Uploading multiple files at the same time is now more reliable than it was.
• Fixed: In an act of over-enthusiastic ennui, sending “/shrug” without any text following it was causing the app to crash. Utterly ridiculous. If there was ever a message that could stand alone, it was this. For the good of all humanity, it now works once more.
• The app now fully supports iOS 13. In particular, and most pleasingly, we now follow the system settings for dark mode, so the app will automatically “go dark” at the same time as your other apps. Good news in dark times.
• Fixed: Notifications were, somewhat bizarrely, only clearing when you’d read *all* of your mentions. The ones you’ve read will now be the only ones cleared from the notification center when you launch the app, leaving the ones you haven’t to be read at leisure.
• Fixed: Replying to a notification works much more often than it used to. 99% of the time, in fact, which is so close to 100% we can almost smell it.
• Fixed: Swiping between channels with two fingers now will now include the “Threads”view, but only, smartly, if you’ve used that view recently.
• Fixed: Custom emoji weren’t always rendering correctly in bots and attachments sent via the Slack API. Now? Emoji = :100:.
• We tuned up the engine and gave the interiors a thorough clean. Everything is now running smoothly again.
• Fixed: When selecting a new profile picture, users were being asked to confirm that picture twice. We now respect your ability to recognize your own face the first time around, and will not ask you again.
• Fixed: It’s now actually possible to successfully
• Fixed: … upload
• Fixed: slow motion… wait for it…
• Fixed: Custom emoji uploaded on desktop are now, vitally, transferred lightning-fast through the tubes, and therefore immediately available in the iOS app.
• Fixed: …videos.
• Fixed: When viewing your Starred Items, unstarring an item will now remove it from the view rather than making you close and reopen the list.
• Fixed: A crash that could occur when a message contained a highlight word, an @-mention, and certain non-English characters. We fixed it, for certain.
• Occasionally, some users were unable to sign in. Given that that's the very first thing we want people to be able to do, we squished the bugs we knew about… but if you ever find more, let us know.
• Fixed: Many Slack apps that use BlockKit show confirmation dialogs to allow you to confirm your action, and in some cases, those weren't working. They now are.
• Fixed: Users who attempt to confirm their email after their original email link expired can now resend that email… and then confirm it, and thus log in. Again; people being able to log in to an app is a very important part of the user experience. We’re committed to keep allowing them to do that. Business!
• As of this update, we've removed 3D Touch functionality from a couple of places inside the app — channel names and DMs — where, frankly, it was simply not doing what it should. 3D touch works still on the icon on home screen, and when quick-replying to a notification as there, it's perfectly up to scratch. (NB: "Scratch" is not a valid touch, please do not scratch your device on our behest.)
• Fixed: When viewing the channel details screen in dark mode, the area that showing the channel title is now, like everything else, also in dark mode.
• Fixed: Where two channels or users had the same name, they will no longer erratically switch places with each other in the channel/DM list.
• Fixed: Opening a thread that contained a message with a link that contained certain characters… led to a crash. And yes, since you ask; that one was satisfying to sniff out. And to fix.
• The first message in a channel or direct message now includes a date header, so you can tell what day it is. Or was, depending.
• Fixed: Where sharing a file from Slack to another app did not, on occasion, work; it now works.
• Fixed: …And sometimes, when sharing a file did work, it would change the file name from words to a series of numbers. Great for robots; terrible for humans.
• Fixed: Messages that included the same custom emoji more than once, with no space between them were only displaying that emoji once. So :emoji::emoji: was only appearing as :emoji:. You now receive all the emoji you desire, and no less than you deserve.
• Fixed: Where, through the Slack API, you were promised the ability to add a link to an emoji so that people could tap that emoji and be transported to the link, we were not following through on that promise. We fixed the bug preventing it from working, and everything is peachy now.
• Fixed: Some custom bot names were not being displayed correctly, and now are.
• Fixed: The list of apps in a group conversation would sometimes show the list of users instead of apps, apps are not people. People are people.
• Fixed: Some message buttons would not display a confirmation dialog when tapped, which was mysterious and slightly confusing. And now, fixed.
• Typing Russian (Cyrillic) characters now allows you to find users or channels containing those characters as easily on iOS as it has been for a while on desktop.
• Fixed: When starting a group conversation that included one or more single-channel or multi-channel guest users sometimes previously selected users were being de-selected. No more. Now you're all in that together.
• We’ve tinkered with the internal workings and polished some rough edges. The app is now better than it was.
• Want to upload multiple images at the same time from the message box? In both channels and threads? Of course you do. And now, you can! Hurrah.
• Fixed: In some fonts, using asterisks to make part of a sentence bold would result in all of the text after the bold words to *also* be bold. While we like to believe the fortune favors the bold, it has come to our attention that that is not what that phrase means. So we fixed it.
• This is the last release that will support iOS 10, and thus the last version that will run on 32-bit devices such as the iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, and fourth-generation iPad. To continue receiving Slack updates, please upgrade to iOS 11.1 or later.
• Olá, Hola, and Nice to see you (to see you nice): From today, Slack supports three new languages — Brazilian Portuguese, Latin American Spanish and UK English. You can change this in the settings menu under, not unexpectedly, "Language". Jolly good! Carry on, everyone.
• Links in some Slack App buttons were not working , taking you nowhere, instead of the expected somewhere. They now whisk you away to the url you thought they would take you to in the first place.
