Bug Fixes
• Fixed: Links were not opening when Slack’s preferences were set to hand off to an external browser app, instead providing a vague and unsatisfying error message. This has been fixed, and the only thing vague and unsatisfying now is the ending to that screenplay we’ve been working on.

July 12, 2021

What’s New
• You know how sometimes you just become aware of how much tension you’re holding in your body, then take a deep breath and slowly let it out? This update is like that. It’s still Slack, just with a tiny bit less friction.

June 28, 2021

Bug Fixes
• Fixed: If you had your settings such that images would not be automatically expanded, our “tap to expand this image” prompt would get mixed up with any text previews generated from a posted URL, leading to similar amounts of confusion as experienced when describing this bug.
• Fixed: If a direct message from a bot contained buttons, and you tapped the message to view its details, the buttons would no longer work. Broken buttons beget bitterness, but better buttons bring bliss.

June 14, 2021

What’s New
• Did you know you can tap and hold on an emoji reaction to see who reacted to the message? Well if you didn’t, now you do. And if you already knew about that, go ahead and give it another go. We’ve made it dramatically easier to see who’s reacted to what. How dramatically? Eight years of theater school and a summer production of Hamlet.

June 01, 2021

Bug Fixes
• Fixed: Long-pressing on the app icon to jump to a recent DM now actually takes you to that DM. We thought it would be better if our buttons actually did the thing we told you they would do.

May 17, 2021

What’s New
• If you’re well versed in Simplified or Traditional Chinese — or aspire to be one day — you can now use Slack in those languages. Set your language preferences in You > Preferences > Language & region.

May 03, 2021

What’s New
• An emoji is worth a thousand words, and now you’ll be able to access them more easily: both the picker and search are now in the bottom sheet, and you’ll see more of them at a glance.

Bug Fixes
• Fixed: A pesky bug that used to show an incorrect number of reactions in the Mentions & Reactions tab (or worse yet, didn’t show the reaction at all) has been dutifully squashed. Or collected and gently put outside. Either way, it’s gone.

April 19, 2021

Bug Fixes
• Fixed: Marking a reminder as complete should give you a deep and profound sense of satisfaction, not an error message. Those errors are gone now, so you can keep blazing through your to-do list.
• Fixed: While you were crafting the perfect message, the slightest tap outside the keyboard would take you to a different place entirely. Now, we keep you where you are until you’re ready to leave.

April 05, 2021

Bug Fixes
• Fixed: Group DMs were difficult to distinguish because the app would truncate the list of participants. Now it’s easier to see names when composing a message or looking in the quick switcher. You’ll know the names of everyone at the party before you walk into the room.

March 22, 2021

What’s New
• Fans of the workspace switcher, take note: First of all, we are flattered you consider yourself a fan of the workspace switcher. Chuffed, even. Second, we’re giving it a refresh, so you can better distinguish your workspaces and switch between them more easily.
• For some, search is the heart of Slack. Now, it’s also the feet, because search is moving to its own tab at the bottom of the app.

March 09, 2021

Bug Fixes
• Fixed: Tapping a profile picture or username in a thread used to do nothing. We weren’t ignoring you; we’re just really into this show at the moment. Tapping a profile picture or username now opens that person’s profile.

February 23, 2021

Bug Fixes
• Fixed: An obscure, odd, out-of-left-field crash. If you’ve ever tried editing your profile while also rotating your phone, you may have seen this crash. Now, you won’t.

February 08, 2021

Bug Fixes
• We tuned up the engine and gave the interiors a thorough clean. Everything is now running smoothly again.

Bug Fixes

January 21, 2021

What’s New
• Previously, the keyboard would appear and disappear in a way that felt inelegant — or even choppy. We’re happy to report that the appearance and disappearance of keyboards has been smoothed out for Android 11 and newer.

January 11, 2021

What’s New
• Noble adventurer, your “slash command” skill has been upgraded. You now have access to the /expand and /collapse commands, and the power to expand or collapse inline images and video courses through your veins.

Bug Fixes
• Fixed: On phones with a “notch” (you’ll know it if you’ve got it), some content was hidden beneath the notch when viewing images full screen. Slack is now aware of — and respects — the notch.

December 14, 2020

What’s New
• Fixed: Adding a new line to a block quote or code block used to make Slack crash. That was then. Now, we won’t be blocking you from building your blocks however you’d like.
