Slack (Beta) for Windows Phone updated with lot of bug fixes


Slack app for Windows Phone has received an update in the Windows Store. Slack makes collaboration easier for teams and the app offers real-time messaging, archiving, searching and more.

Version 2016.1212.0.0 brings a lot of bug fixes for a better Slack experience across all of your devices.

Here is the official change-log for December update:

  • Attachments having dates sometimes led to the app crashing. We were being too sensitive. Attachments can have dates. We accept that now.
  • Sometimes the key Slack feature of simply mentioning users could lead to the app crashing – no more, thank jiggins.
  • While we like tapping, we don’t like tapping twice. If you want to send a direct message from someone’s profile it now only takes one tap. Tada!
  • Creating new channels without internet connection is still not possible, but at least we now let you know that.
  • Users with owner rights didn’t always get the VIP treatment they deserved. We now allow you to do all the fun things.
  • We’ll no longer make channels unread just because someone leaves or joins them, because it didn’t make any sense.
  • If you are about to start a new conversation with someone, but really just want to create a private channel instead, we now allow you to do so again.
  • The bar saying you have unreads is now a lot more reliable.
  • Uploading with a bad connection can be difficult. We now tell you if it went wrong rather than just let it disappear silently.
  • If you’re the last member leaving a channel, you can now archive it. Lights out!

Since the app is still in beta, so expect some rough edges around the corner but the overall performance is getting better with each update.
