Slack Beta for Windows Phone picks up an update

Slack is one of the most popular collaboration and messaging app for teams and businesses. The app doesn’t only allow users people to communicate, but they can manage different projects and see who’s working on what, as well as integrations with several third party apps and services.

Recently, the developer pushed out an update for Slack Beta app on Windows Phone, which brings a few new features as well as bug fixes. With the latest update, the reconnecting is faster and more reliable, as well as a handful of bug fixes, including the ability to find your colleagues and co-workers by searching their last name when starting a new conversation.

Here’s the complete change log for the latest update:

What’s new

  • Reconnecting is faster. It could be a bit sluggish in the past. But we greased that slug, and now it’s not only faster, but more reliable, and much happier.
  • For paid teams that have User groups (like @team @wp-users or @smart-people), these User Groups are now supported in the beta app.
  • Added support for an big upcoming. Well, not “big” big. Just “bigger”.

What’s fixed

  • Fixed: Some bugs with error messages that rendered them more plentiful and less useful than was desirable.
  • Fixed: You can formally now find people by last name when starting a new conversation.

If you happen to be a regular user of Slack beta on your Windows Phone handset, head over to the Windows Store and grab the updated app.
