Slack Beta update brings a number of fixes to Windows phones

Slack (Beta) for Windows Phone

The still unfinished Window’s phone app, Slack, continues to roll out updates to its beta version. The communication application brings chats and messages together all in one place with an easy-to-use design.

The release notes for Version 2016.517.1617.0 include:

  • Fixed: Some users couldn’t get in via SSO. We’ve now added an alternate way for those few lost users.
  • Fixed: A lil bug that meant a very few people couldn’t access the app as it kept forgetting who they were. A very rare case but now hopefully resolved. Sorry again, those people.
  • Fixed: A prickly DM conversation bug where users were unable to DM other team members unless they’d had previous message history with them. But talking to new people is good! We’ve embraced that now.

The update is relatively minor compared to the last update in March. However, the beta app still trails behind other social applications. The Slack team requests that users leave honest feedback about the app and update on their download page.
