Slack for Android Beta Test Last 10 Updates


    Version Varies with device

    What’s New

    What's New:
    • We've updated the way we index text in Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. Searching in those languages should now function much better.

    Bug Fixes:
    • We've fixed a bunch of bugs about how user presence is reflected in the app. Included amongst them: setting your presence with "/away", or manually changing your availability to online/offline, should both now be immediately reflected correctly in the app.

    What’s New

    What's New:
    • Fixed: This is just to say — we have fixed the "delete message" option you found next to your message that had failed to send, and which you were probably hoping would delete the message. Forgive us: it was annoying. So promising, and so nonfunctional.

    26 Jun 2018 Google Play Release Update

    What’s New

    What's New:
    • Fixed: Tapping the share button very rapidly over and over again could lead to a loop where the file would get shared over and over again too (until the app was force-quit, or, let's face it, rage-quit). An air of calm now pervades.
    • Fixed: The application of logic and fine engineering now mean that downloading a file containing the ‘%’ character in the filename will no longer cause a crash.
