    • Fixed: After ending a Slack call, the call sometimes appeared to be ongoing in the notifications tray. It wasn't (ongoing) but the fact that it was (in the notifications tray) meant a new call couldn't be started. Apologies for this, it's all better now.

    • Nothing lasts forever. Now when you set your status, you can also set a time (or date) for that status to expire. No longer will people question how you're "Working remotely on Tuesday" when it's Thursday, or wonder why you've been "At the dentist" for 19 consecutive hours.

    What’s New
    • Message actions come to Android: It's now easier to create tasks, comment on tickets, or follow-up on things while on the move. So if you have important tools like Asana, Zendesk and Jira connected to Slack, you can now long press any message and create a follow up without needing to log into those tools. It's very good. We recommend it.
