Slack Beta for Windows Phone gets a bunch of enhancements and fixes

Slack, for those that did not know, is a popular team collaboration tool now available on all major platforms thanks to the recent launch of the Beta app on Windows Phone. The Slack team has been hard at work making a fantastic Windows Phone app and the company has rolled out a huge update recently adding a number of enhancements and bug fixes.

So what’s fixed in the most recent update?

  • Fixed issue where channels weren’t always marking as being read correctly.
  • Fixed issue where links weren’t clickable in Win 10.
  • Fixed issue where clicking a push notification didn’t load the proper channel.
  • Fixed issue where typing links did not make them immediately clickable.
  • Fixed issue where emoji did not always render properly.
  • Fixed issue where blue bar sometimes displayed when it shouldn’t have and didn’t dismiss when it should. Bad blue bar.
  • Fixed issue where loading indicator did not unload.
  • More bug fixes too numerous to mention. Thanks to everyone for sending in reports.

“We’ve been working hard and feel confident enough to open up our Windows Phone Beta to all the patient Windows Phone users who’ve been clamoring for it. But this is a beta — not the finished version, so it has some rough edges and quirky traits unbecoming of a proper Slack application. We humbly ask only one thing: please give us your honest feedback so that we can make your Windows Phone experience great,” Slack states.

We recommend heading over to the official Slack for Windows Phone change log website to keep track of what’s new and what’s been fixed. Slack also outlines a todo list and it looks like Slack for Windows Phone will eventually be getting mentions, multi-team support, slack commands, animated gifs, and much more.
