    Cool app, only really missing is sharing (desktop or screen, or simply receiving someone screen sharing) via mobile network. Such a pity that even on 4G+ network its not available. Also missing the video option. Sound from mobile microphone (samsung s10) is very low for others. Impossible to remove dailybot once set, etc. Definitively would require some improvements... MS teams app(your concurrent) has it all already.

    Roman Koreshkov


    stock Needless to say that I cannot see screen shared by my teammates during a call. Having a video is an unreachable wish (but Zoom has it without any problem). But even word typing cannot be adequately realised by Slack dev team: I had been writing a long response in a thread, but suddenly slided my thumb to the right: the textbox slided out, I was returned to the thread, but when I returned back to my response (as a draft) to continue it I saw only the first sentence. Disappointed.

    login Slack desktop is pretty decent, but the Android app is frustrating. It's completely hit or miss whether you can mark conversations as read, seems to work or not work at random. Have tried so many combinations of clearing data/etc and it still has the same issues.

    download Why I'm not receiving notifications of messages etc. ? I've turned on the notifications, everything but still it doesn't show up. The company I'm working for is using this app & it is very frustrating that I don't receive notifications!!!! Please fix this!

  5. Monty Joe-avatar

    Monty Joe


    er It has become pretty awful lately, it doesn't remove unread icons from chats, it can show very old notifications and successfully uploaded files for a long time show up like upload has failed and you can remove this. Note: in Chrome it actually works well, but phone app almost unusable.

    app Since the last update the app mixes the light and dark themes. E.g. during the night there are big white sections with white text.. inside the dark menu. Please fix. However I really like the new style design on mobile, when you solve this I'll give a better rating.

    salesforce Editing my review. After discussing my issue with notifications with a dev, the issue has been narrowed down to one that Slack is aware of and currently working on. I was provided a workaround, and the person who assisted me throughout the whole process was excellent.

    stock price Slack is very easy to use and makes our jobs easier. However now that I'm driving after sunset I'm wondering if its possible for the app to have a night time mode. At my job I need to monitor more then one app while driving and although I turn down the brightness on my phone, it makes it difficult to read any new postings i need to be aware of. Thanks for considering this.

    line Useless, for sharing code blocks, from mobile app, because blocks, enclosed in triple backticks, does not work ```. As of the latest version, it now croaks and crashes, when attempting to italicize text. Yay.

    CI/CD doesn't seem to go well for this app. It keeps getting worse unfortunately. Chats aren't updated only the indicator is since a few updates. This makes the app quite unusable.

    EDIT: Review has been updated. The battery drains and issues are no longer a problem. It still has occasional issues with loading messages, but it is still a significant improvement. ----- The recent builds of the app have had all sorts of issues with hard freezes, excessive drains on the battery and never actually loading messages when viewing them. The only way I've found to temporarily fix it is to force stop the app or reboot my phone. This has made it very difficult to use consistently.

    Extremely messy, enormously bulky and ridiculously primitive app. This app is something which is not supposed to exist at all. It's super unreliable, bloated and slow. You never get your messages in real time, the layout is extremely confusing and on top of that it takes 700 MB from my phone's storage! This is unbelievable. This is more than all my other apps out together. Recently it started being choppy and it closes by itself. I wish my company used Telegram instead.

  20. Alexis-avatar



    I get the people running the app need money to keep it running, but limiting messages to only be seen for a month, no group calls/video calls (and then even limiting the number of people who can join in the 6.99 monthly plan), and limiting what permissions people can have/get/give was not it chief. You can do all this and MORE with Discord. If you're a company, I suggest using something else unless you want to give 12.99$ a month for these things that are free on Discord.

    Almost 4/5 times when I send images from my phone to a channel or to someone in private the image gets sent but when I open Slack (on the phone) the channel or private chat has an error "Couldn't send. Tap to try again." I don't want to tap it since the image has already been sent and received. I also don't know any way around the issue other than uninstalling the app. It's super annoying. I will change my rating to 5 stars once this has been fixed

    I used to have little to no problems with slack, but now I'm missing messages, most of my chats won't load, and I can't search key words. It's not my connection, it's the app. I don't know what happened but this has made my job incredibly difficult. I know some of the crew members I work with have a lot of the same issues. Please fix your app, it's not a game I can just delete. It's required for me to do my job, and I'm getting in trouble because of these bugs.

    Slack has been my favorite collaboration tool, both the desktop version and the mobile app version. Audio, Video calls, file sharing, all these things are quite seemless and hassle free. Moreover the look and feel of the UI is quite rich. There should have some feature like integration with MS Outlook so that we can schedule slack meetings via Outlook. But overall i am very happy using slack.

    The past week and a half, the app has stopped working properly. Some messages aren't fetched at all and are simply missing, and some messages refuse to send from the mobile side despite no other messaging application having issues. I love slack, but this is causing a lot of issues. It also appears to be happening on the iOS version I use as well. Please help.

    This app is great for communication and has a good bit of features that are nice. Like theme personalization and having a personal thread for quick notes. It also syncs settings instantly between devices. However, when open, it's a battery hog. Also, if you don't set your mobile to never receive notifications, Slack will easily eat up about 20% battery in a day. That's horrid, in my opinion. If you set your phone to never receive notifications, it uses only 1 or 2% a day.

  32. Mark K-avatar

    This is one of those apps that everyone uses only because everyone else uses it. It doesn't work very well on Android. Calls absolutely do not work on Android. Bluetooth headsets do not work on Android. Screen sharing doesn't work on Linux, dual monitors always shares both your monitors as 1 huge screen. (I shouldn't have to apologize for having dual monitors when I'm on a call). I'm sure all these issues are fixed on Windows (and maybe even Mac), but who cares? Those platforms are chock full of apps that work. Ppl say, "let's use slack, I hear it works on Linux", well it doesn't, so let's not. --- Original Review: (this still counts, because of their stupid magic link thing, you can't just know your username and password and slack channel name, you have to also get email on the platform your trying to login with. If you want to login on your phone, for example, you can't use your desktop email to verify your email address. It's so non-intuitive.) The most confusing app I've ever used. Spent 15 minutes and still can't login. You guys must seriously have meetings about how to make this app difficult to use. I use slack on the browser, want to use it on the phone, this app does not give me that ability.

    There are some serious issues with this app which make it nearly useless. First, if there's a notification and I click on it, the latest Messages are not shown for some reason. Also, even if I already read some messages, they are still shown as unread. Sometimes messages are not sent but they are shown as sent.

  34. Amber Pickens-avatar

    Amber Pickens


    Doesn't load new messages/update when new messages are posted. It will notify you of new message and when you click on the notification it takes you to the channel, but none of the new messages are loaded. Only fix is to completely exit the app and relaunch every new channel post. Horrible. Also if you go from 4g to wifi any messages during network change never come through. So you miss important messages and look like the class idiot for not knowing details that the rest of the team know.

    Ever since the last update, the app becomes unresponsive. It lags when you type. I've never had to close and then restart the app as much as I have to do now. I've been using it basically since the beginning on different mobile devices, always worked really well until now. If I didn't use Slack so much, I would uninstall the app completely. Extremely frustrating! Please fix ASAP! Update - everything is working again as expected after the last update. Thanks for the fix.

    All of a sudden in the last few days, it has started to hang when I use it for more than 5secs. Since my mobile battery has been draining very quickly lately, I checked the battery consumption stats. It is using 67% of the battery! Guessing that there could be a bug in one of the recent releases. Pls check asap and provide a hotfix pkg if that is the case. I would have to uninstall this app for now.

    Last update KILLED THE APP. We're having SO MANY issues every morning with conference calls. People in my team had so many issues with the iOS app, now Android is now on par with iOS with the latest update. The volume output on speaker is now SUPER low. Some users are muted and can't ever unmute. God damn slack, please step up your game. You went from a perfectly working app to something completely unreliable in your last update.

    Awaiting the fix for missing messages issue. Its terrible when you open app and find lots of recent unseen messages missing from the chat specially when you are following up some criticial thread during work. Need to kill and relaunch the app until able to see those messages. Can't stay with it for long :( Issue is been for a long time don't know how you people are not able to fix it for such a long period.

    Doesn't fetch most recent messages. Ever since the last update (I'm completely up to date as of this review) the app doesn't fetch the most recent messages after I get the notification and go into the app to see/read what was sent. It worked perfectly fine until this recent update. Can't use it at all without constantly forcing a stop and then reopening the app. Super disappointed. Not cool to release an update that doesn't work. Might have to get my team switched to something else.

    It's not a great android app. Works great at work on pc but lots of bugs on android. Most annoying for me is everytime I send a picture with the android app it works fine but says it has failed, now I can either press to send again (the recipient will get the picture again) or be left with a notification saying it has failed. At least at give an option to remove the notification but better yet fix the bug

    I'm using it as a primary tool to communicate with teams and clients. Recently app became literally unusable. Crashing constantly, freezing (on snapdragon 865). I need to restart the app every 2 min just to reply. Super disappointed, right now it adds more problem than it solves. Please revert back to the working version.

  42. Siduo Jiang-avatar

    This design SUCKS! I don't want the main panel to be a long list of TEXT names of channels and people. This does not facilitate quickly navigating conversations. I also need to be able to quickly switch between conversations without going back to this HORRENDOUS main page of TEXT names. Unbelievable. I can see this being the start of Slack's decline, all because some idiot had the idea to "fix" a brilliant design that was never broke. Not ok the app constantly freezes and crashes my phone now.

    I'm a long time slack user and have generally been delighted by it However, this version is completely unreliable and barely usable. It has hard crashed my phone twice in the last day, and I'm not doing anything out of the ordinary. There are some severe mobile usability issues that need to be addressed.

    The app suddenly started crashing and not responding A LOT. Chews through battery. And a feature they used to have has been gone for a while: auto clearing Android notifications once you view a message on desktop. All in all, an app that started out AMAZING two or so years ago has gotten worse to the point of me literally being unable to use it due to the app being unresponsive and crashing

  45. Vikrant Mulani-avatar

    Stopped working for Samsung Galaxy A5. Recently it has started crashing all the time and I just can't type on it. It's not usable at all and should be fixed. It is causing to many issues. My OS tells me it uses 4% of the battery. It has stopped responding 10 times in a day. It looks like memory leak issue which should be looked at. I can't try and reinstall the app at this stage.

    I would have had a five star rating before the most recent update. I did not update for about 3 months but I decided to update about a week ago and have been having such a bad experience. I think there might be some sort of memory leak because about 30 seconds into having the app open things start to slow down exponentially to the point that you have to wait 30 seconds from when you actually tap on the text input field before the keyboard shows up and you can start typing. Unusable!

    Smooth and user friendly especially the new interface, but would like the "create group chat" option to be improved. When adding a new member, a new group shouldn't have to be created again, the same group should just continue to exist, having so much inactive chats on ur display won't look nice. Hope you guys understand what I am trying to say?? I love ur app anyway though

  48. CJ Sumlin-avatar

    The app is a little awkward. If I start a conversation in the desktop version, the last few messages in the convo are not always shown in the app. That makes it difficult to switch from the desktop to the app if I need to continue my convo on my phone. That may be a problem with my wifi connection, but I haven't seen a way to refresh where it will sych with the desktop chat history.

    Normally I think slack is a great app but in the last 24 hours it has become completely unusable for any extended period of time. If I kill it and start fresh I can get maybe a message out before it completely slows down and becomes unresponsive. Sometimes channel rendering and navigation just freeze at a loading view and other times the keyboard becomes borderline impossible to use. Very frustrating

  50. Ana Gabriela Pessoa-avatar

    Ana Gabriela Pessoa


    This app is so unreliable. Whenever I get messages with preview notification on my phone I can't read them on the app, like they were never sent to me. How does that even happen?! Luckily I have the app on my laptop and can see the missing messages there but it is ridiculous how this keeps happening. Even when I can clearly see the message on the laptop it does not appear on my phone, it just skips to the next one. I never had an app with that issue before. I would love this app if not for that.

    The "Welcome to Slack! Select the channel you just created below to start a conversation about your first project." Never goes away. I've started dozens of conversations. Made multiple channels. Please, just remove the banner forever when I hit "X". That really that hard to code in? Guess I'll go to Wickr for now.

    I was on vacation Aug 7-16 and was only viewing slacks (not responding). Now that I'm back to work, I'm experiencing the same issue everyone else is noting... I cannot type because my slack lags and takes a long time to actually show what I typed. My email and texts and even this review is not experiencing the same issue. This is having a huge impact on my productivity and I'd imagine others as well. Can there be a rollback to the previous version which wasn't experiencing this issue?

  53. AJ Gudmundsen-avatar

    AJ Gudmundsen


    Inconsistent. Sometimes I get messages right away, sometimes not. If my desktop app is open, not necessarily "foreground" but minimized, my mobile doesn't receive notifications. As of the last few months a more annoying issue has risen: I will get a notification on mobile, tap it in the notification tray, and the channel to which I go does not show the new message. Not until I "reset cache" can I see the new messages. This is a daily occurrence.

    I really like slack however I have a Samsung se 10 (I think) and recently the app has been freezing hard core or the screen stutter/shakes. I figured this would be the best way to alert the developers. It used to work fine and in a timely manner but now it's almost unusable. I constantly have to switch to my iPad or computer to use which is fine when I'm home but inconvenient when I'm not. I see there's a long line of Samsung users here experiencing this issue too. Plz fix!

    Worst business app ever. When I receive a call on a multiple devices and answer from one of them, the other devices should stop ringing. Inst was they keep ringing for almost a minute so that it is impossible to talk with the person on the other side. Also, it doesn't synchronise immediately if you read one message in one device you still get the notification in the others. Rubbish.

    One would think it would be hard to screw up an IM app. But slack shows that it's possible. The app randomly crashes on my Galaxy S20, notifications won't go away when viewed on other devices, or worse off, disappear randomly and turning off battery optimisation drains a third of my battery every day, while telegram remains at 1.7%. The workspace system is a complete mess, I have no idea who thaught that this implementation is a good idea. Sadly, I'm forced to use it by my company.

  59. rengal85-avatar



    Was fine until recent updates removed the option to switch between phone speaker and loudspeaker. Nobody can hear me on loudspeaker for some reason but it was fine on the phone speaker. Now I can no longer toggle it to the phone speaker Update: Clearing cache in Advanced settings seems to have resolved the issue with the loudspeaker being default and the toggle is now showing again

    Why do I have to confirm my email every single time I want to log in via my Android phone. I never had to do this but for the last several weeks I have to do this.. it has become a big pain in the A#$. I am using the Slack App via Google Store..When I click the app it ask to sign in manually or email me a magic link. I never had to confirm my email before because the app update. When I would open my slack app it had my email in there already I would click on that and the application would go.

    Bricks Phone. Out of the blue the app started draining my HTC U11 battery, freezes when open, I can't type in it, I have too close and reopen to see new messages. It's just not functional, at all. Drains my battery at a rate of 1% every 45 seconds to a minute. Uninstalling because this isn't viable. Slack is also required for work, so yay

    Something is definitely wrong with latest updates. The app is extremely show, takes seconds to respond to navigation taps, constantly drains my phone's battery. Multiple times a day out of nowhere my phone shows me a pop-up that says "slack has stopped." In general, right now the app is unusable.

    Poor Mobile App Mobile app suffers from an updating issue. Often will receive a notification that a new message has arrived, but clicking on the notification will bring up the appropriate channel without the new message(s). Is necessary to actually close the app and reopen to get the message(s) to show. App is excluded from battery management. Have heard same complaint from other users. Difficult to find in-app feedback option is pretty much useless.

    With the latest updates the app is pretty much unusable for me. Notications show but when I open the app it renders an endless loading loop. I reinstalled it, which made it work for a while, I then downloaded the latest update which brought it back to the same useless state. Edit: 4 months later, still doesn't work properly. - No loading loop but messages and usernames are missing among other things.

    The Android app is absolutely useless. Push notifications seem to have a mind of their own. They almost never come on time, and some of them show up mins-hours after I've already read the message in app. The worst part is that new messages don't show up even when I have the app open and pull down to refresh. I open the Mac and see that I have unread messages from hours ago that never showed up in app. I'm really surprised and dismayed at how terrible Slack's Android app has become.

    Always miss the notifications. Why can't it just display all DM and mentions on my phone? I have turned on notifications and set notify me on mobile as always but it didn't help. Edit: thanks for the reply. Changed setting of battery optimisation. Let's see if it helps.

    Same issue I see others writing about, I get a notification OK, then I click it and the app comes up, but that message isn't in the thread view. Once I got a notification for a message someone had added to, and the bit they added was in the thread view, but not the original text (was very confusing since that bit didn't make sense by itself). I've basically reached the point where I use the app just to hear the "ding", then I go to the web interface to read.

    The app doesn't work seamlessly between desktop and app. Messages show up in the notification but don't work when opening the app. There's also a significant lag between desktop and app. Also I can't take slack calls on my mobile . Which is a huge problem. No one can hear me!

    I think there's a bug in this app. It's August 20, 2020 now and when I downloaded the app, it just shows the loading slack icon. I tried it on 3 different android devices but it still behaves the same. It shows loading icon on all 3 device. Or even if you already have the app installed and working and when you click on reset cache, then again it stops working and shows the loading icon till eternity... Your app has problems while installing it and clearing the cache. It was running fine till 19

    App worked really well until i recieved a request for a new workspace (logged in using my Google Account), tried the 'email the link' but this just defaults to a login screen and keeps going round in circles and requesting that I log in with my URL User Name and Password.. which I do not have as I am logged in with a Google Account.. frustrating.. I can not use this on my phone anymore so I have to look at slack on my computer .. now given up and sending normal emails and using the phone.. let me know when this is fixed ...sent an email to the support and they answered in a couple of hours.. logged in using the mobile browser then the app opened up without problems .. thanks .. an extra four stars for the quick service

    You guys really need to make a lot of improvements. The desktop app is superb. But your android app is pathetic. I see a dot I go and check the message and then I still see the dot. Sometimes the dot is there but the chats are not synced I have to go and check my computer. This is not we use a mobile app for. Please fix it or drop the android app.

    Please allow slack to work without google play services. Issues: while chatting, new incoming mesages aren't being cleared from notification panel(note10+ android 10) . Reliable Message delivery needs to be looked into. Occasional problems receiving messages(even not optimized). Font sizes? Seems like an awesome app, but please look into a way to keep the app running and ensure messages are delivered instantly. Thanks for the effort.

    Really great app, makes it very convenient to chat with my team when I'm on the go. Unfortunately, I don't receive notifications all the time despite having settings to always go to my phone regardless of desktop activity. I wouldn't mind sacrificing some background activity in order to always receive notifications.

    Really easy to use, it guides you on the way via the Slack Bot. It's very fast and great for uploading and sharing files, documents etc. Much better than email. I found Teams confusing but this is intuitive and easy, I'm not a technology person at all and I found it simple.

    Update (Aug 25, 2020). Reinstalled with the new app update and seems to be working fine for now. Old review -> Used to be a good companion for the desktop (mac) application.

    I am rating this 1 star just because it's impossible to allow notifications from 6PM to 3AM(the next day) error says: you will need to choose an end time that is later than your start time. EDIT: THIS HAS BEEN FIXED. Thank you. There is one more issue that sometimes, you receive messages on pc and on the phone, the notifications come really late. I have a Pocophone f1

    It doesn't work. I've tried signing in and having them seems me a magic link for months. I've never once ever been able to sign into the app. First it says, incorrect password. (Is not incorrect.

    Ever since the latest update, messages I write in channels or in DMs often just disappear from view in the mobile app. Luckily they're still there in desktop app, but it's very annoying to have to switch to desktop to see them. Also happens with messages that others write. Please fix it.

    There is an issue when I open the app. Sometimes I only see a white page with the big logo in the middle and get stuck at there without entering the app. It's been persistent for a few days... Please double check with the dev team. This is pretty annoying. My phone is Gal note 10 plus and the app is up to date.

    Fixed in Aug update thanks. Original review: A channel of a different workspace show under a different one when there is unread and on clicking on it, it says 'channel not found'. Even when there is no unread, different channel of different workspace show.. please fix this ASAP.

    I found a bug in this. When I am using slack it's working fine. When I turned off the phone screen and double tap on the phone screen the it's showing slack and it's showing the keyboard as well. It should not be right? And another one is... Notification is coming to desktop computer but not showing in the app up to some time.

    Please! fix the notifications! it's a nightmare, if u are using slack in both mobile and desktop when u receive a message u get a permanent notification in desktop (Mac) and also a notification in Android even if u have slack opened and active in desktop u still receive a notification in Android even if u are seeing the same chat opened in desktop.It's super annoying after a while of chatting with someone I have a ton of useless notifications in Android. Just copy how Telegram handles this!

    Good App. One remark : I use slack mobile app and also browser version with my Laptop. Sometime I keep my mobile disconnected from Internet. When I connected my mobile phone back to internet, I get all the notifications from Slack even I've already read them on laptop. So better send only unread messages to mobile app because others already I've opened on Desktop. Its bothering. Other than that I like this app.

  85. Vincent Parker-avatar

    Too Many notifications for nothing. I mostly use the desktop app for windows while working, at the end of the day my phone shows I have 100s of notifications from slack... I thought it wasn't supposed to send notifications to my mobile unless I am idle for a set amount of time. This is very annoying, I also hate that I can't use fingerprint Auth on Samsung but I can use face recognition... Stupid.

    The app has become nearly unusable in the past couple weeks. If I open the app from a notification, it'll freeze before it even loads the messages. If I manage to get messages to load, the app will become unresponsive as I scroll through a channel, especially if new messages are coming into the channel. (Using Google Pixel 4)

    So far I am not the most pleased with this app. I need it for my formula sae club, but I cant figure out how to login. Most apps use a simple email and password. This uses some sort of specific web address that I cant seem to find. So now I'm logged out of my account and cabt figure out how to get in. The emails I've been sent with the confirmation of my email take me to a blank page so they arent working. I would mu h prefer a simple username and password.

  88. mr7-avatar



    Works fine for everything except calling, I can't recall if I've seen anything worst then your calling system. I recieve call but it never joins, same for the other end. Even with good internet speed, it doesn't work and if it somehow connects, we can hardly convey messages around.

    Massive time waster App. Spend hours to figure out all of its features only to realize it can't do what you want it to. Or else it can, but in such a convoluted way, you might as well just use 3 different apps for the same functionality. This app tries to do everything, and does it poorly. Ps. If you want, hire me and Ill show you how to make it better.

    The app doesn't recognize when you read messages so I always have tons of red notifications until I go to my desktop and reread them there. It's frustrating because I keep thinking I have new messages and don't. Also the push notifications do not work even though I enabled them on mobile and through the desktop app. Seems like slack is either slacking on mobile totally or focusing on iOS.

    Perfect adaptation of the desktop version. The only fix that needs to occur is sometimes workspace tiles will show you have a message, but not where it is, so you have to go and find the reply. Will change my review to 5 if this is adapted.

  92. AVP-avatar



    Does not work with my phone. I have an active account through my PC, installed the app on my phone (android), doea not let me sign in. Does not even let me open the link Slack send me. Lack of testing/debugging? Not everyone has an Apple (luckily).

    The app by it self is great. BUT I'm molding over notifications. When my phone isn't connected to internet and I receive new message via desktop app, and answer it, the next time I enable internet on phone I get notifications from that same message AGAIN. And if that was a dialog via desktop - I get ALL MESSAGES that the person send to me as notifications.

    @customer service. I fixed the problems by removing and reinstalling both the apps and they are working again. But how they can go from working to not working within a week is not good. Now I have to see if the notifications get fixed. Raising rating to 4 stars ====Previous Review ==== Audio not working. What the heck. Last week my desktop slack stopped working with calls and now my phone! Whats going on? In addition to all this, there heavy use if resources on my laptop and no notifications for new messages sometimes.

    Okay, it got even worse. First, no video calls. Second, some horrible noise when using Bluetooth headset on my s9+. Third, immediate call drop or crash when someone shares screen during call. And finally, not really related to this app, but to the service itself, a wrapped webpage instead of a real desktop client.

    App started to freeze all the time recently becoming utterly unusable. Edit. They replied they have a known bug and they have yet to issue a fix.

    Ver: This has been buggiest version in slack. There was unread counts in dm then new message is not visible in the channel. I had to go to my laptop to check them. Some channels come up empty in back navigation from thread. The quality of the latest versions have gone down definitely.

    Hi Slack, has this issue been fixed yet? Redownloaded, reinstalled, cleared everything but still forced on speaker mode. Disappointing. Been holding back from being a paid user because of this. Samsung or Slack issue?? Using Samsung Note 10 Plus (colleague with Note 9 has the same exact issues) - direct phone call is STUCK to loudspeaker (only 2 buttons, Red hangup icon or mute icon) and conversations become public!Where's the 3rd button (choice of loudspeaker mode or telephone-direct to ear?)

    I don't understand what is going on, but since the last update, the app has turned in to a clunky piece of trash. Messages don't send. There is typing lag, like the React code has gone haywire. I've deleted it, removed all data, and reinstalled to no avail. Relegated to desktop only now.

    Dear Slack developers I had to reduce the rating from 5 to 2 stars. Please revert whatever you did since last couple of updates. App has become unnecessarily slow. Takes a few seconds for typed texts to appear in the box. It just keeps on lagging for no reason. It was working all good until a few updates ago. I am using it on Galaxy S9+ model with latest OS updates installed.

    Slack on Samsung Note 9 is almost unusable has been for about a month. Coworkers on my calls can barely hear me, they receive either echoing on their end or a lot of noise that makes me almost inaudible.

    The new UI is bad. I like to rely on watching channels visually to check for messages while in a channel. Now, I can't watch other channels while talking in one. It's awkward having to return to the main list to switch channels.

    I love Slack, great application. I give the mobile app a 3 star though because for some reason it can't handle message badges properly, even though I've read a channels message multiple times it still shows as unread. I've scrolled through, clicked the "20+ unread" button etc.

    Not properly synced with the web version. It has notification issues as well. If there's a message on any of the channel, even after reading it, it shows again as unread after coming back from the home screen or from another app. I hope it will be fixed soon.

    Dear Slack team, You'd be surprised how many of us have the workspaces with similar Slack space names we have to switch between. With the update we just got, it it practically impossible to identify the workspace I need to move to. As the name is truncated, the icon looks exactly the same for all the similar ones. Yes, it looks fancy. Sorry, this is not practical. I don't think you'll ever roll back. You did your UAT I am very sure, and were happy with results. I wish we were here.
