• Fixed: Replying to a notification works much more often than it used to. 99% of the time, in fact, which is so close to 100% we can almost smell it.
• Fixed: Swiping between channels with two fingers now will now include the “Threads”view, but only, smartly, if you’ve used that view recently.
• Fixed: Custom emoji weren’t always rendering correctly in bots and attachments sent via the Slack API. Now? Emoji = :100:.

Love it - but where’s Dark Mode?
I’ve been using this app for several years now. I regularly communicate with colleagues, but one thing that’s been annoying me to hell. Is the blatant lack of dark mode... being on-call or being pinged late at night or very early in the morning is a killer, especially when you open the app, it’s just like “TIME TO BLIND YOU” at 3am.
I’d give this application five stars if it wasn’t lacking that, yes it’s somewhat minor but for an avid user in an organisation of thousands of employees it’s a killer per the aforementioned.
I find the app constantly half a second too slow for my liking. This has the cumulative effect of making me slightly more frustrated over time as I'm using the app.
Slowness most noticeable with the delay in (or simply broken) notifications. When I see a red notification icon on the app logo, I find the fastest way to check the new update is to hard close the app and re-open, as this prompts the notifications to actually pick up the new message. It's also not a 100% success rate - sometimes I need to do this several times before the update is picked up. This has frustrated me when I've actually been reading the thread at the time, I know someone has added a comment, but it won't show up on my screen, even with a drag-refresh.
Slowness also noticeable when changing channels, navigating to threads and switching workspaces.
Our IT manager introduced this to our office a while ago and it’s totally changed the way we communicate across 5 offices. Hardly any internal emails, sett your notifications to reduce noise, see what you need to see! You can set up group channels like social, announcements etc, private channels with only certain staff included (like management) and other temporary ones for organising things like surprise birthday parties! Brilliant. Get it. Look at the help pages to get you set up. You won’t regret it. We use a paid version now for the company but the free one is great to get you started.
