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.

What’s New
• We do these releases every week to keep on top of performance… but sometimes there's nothing specific to tell you. So let's talk about some things we should have been better about telling you about in the first place. Like, did you know that you can long press on a message on mobile to set it to "unread", so it's there waiting for you when you get to your desk? Or set a reminder to look at it later? Oh, you did? Never mind, then. Carry on.

What’s New
• Slack is now available in Korean, which means you can finally DM your favorite BTS member! That was a joke, please do not do that.

Bug Fixes
• Time may be a construct, but you shouldn’t have to do math to know what hour it is. Now, we match your device's preferences when we display times. If you use a 24-hour clock, you’ll see it reflected when you set a custom status that expires or when you snooze a notification.

What’s New
• 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.

What’s New
• Bugs were squished, performance was improved, work was done, and the result was good. Please enjoy Slack responsibly.

September 14, 2020

Bug Fixes
• Fixed: A crash that sometimes occurred after sending a message while offline, and then coming back online no longer occurs. The app stays up, and the message is sent. Everyone wins.
• Fixed: For those using Slack in UK English, the “Join Channel” button displayed at the bottom of a channel you had not yet joined was reading “Join %1$s”. It has been pointed out to us that this is not how the British spell “channel”, so we changed it. Awfully sorry about that.

August 27, 2019

Bug Fixes
• Fixed: Sometimes outgoing messages to a channel looked like they had been sent twice.

August 20, 2019

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

We tweaked some things too small to notice or too difficult to explain. We’ll return you to your regular, more interesting types of release next time (we hope).

July 16, 2019

Bug Fixes
• Fixed: Sometimes, after tapping an image to view it in full-screen, it would disappear, which is the opposite of full-screen. It now does the opposite of the opposite, which was the thing you wanted all along.
• Fixed: @-mentioning or searching for users with names containing Chinese, Japanese, or Korean characters now works as it should.

June 18, 2019

Bug Fixes
• Fixed: Occasionally, images that had been sent to a channel wouldn’t display. Not all images, and not all the time; only sometimes, and for no apparent reason. Turns out there was a reason! It was "software being weird". So we fixed it, and images should once again display correctly.
• Fixed: In some cases, attempting to upload animated .gifs and .webm files would instead upload non-animated versions, which defeated the object. This is fixed.

What’s New
• When selecting an image to upload, you can now give a light tippity-tap on the thumbnail to preview it, or long pressity-press (technical terms) on it to edit the title.
Bug Fixes
• Fixed: Rotating your phone from portrait to landscape view sometimes mysteriously crashed the app. It now doesn't. Or, to look at it another way: you now can.

Bug Fixes
• Fixed: When long pressing on a message to perform an action — like marking unread, setting a reminder or sharing — some of the message actions were overlapping unattractively. They're much more attractive now.
