Slack for Windows gets updated with new features and bug fixes


Slack, the popular  team communication tool today released a new update for its official Windows app. The latest update introduces a much-needed feature – the ability to customize where notifications appear. With the latest update, users can customize where they want notifications to appear, such as top-left, bottom-right, etc. The latest update also adds spell-check to the app – if you’re running Windows 8,/8.1 or Windows 10, the app will now be available to detect your spelling mistakes. Alongside these two new additions, the update also fixes a decent amount of bugs:

  • Fixed: an issue where certain Unicode characters were garbled in notifications.
  • Fixed: Users can now copy images straight from the context menu.
  • Fixed: Scraped out the crusty black gunk when the app window loads. It was gross in there. We don’t want to talk about it.
  • Fixed: Clever installer improvements mean that machines with Software Restriction Policies restricting installation to LocalAppData can now run Slack, happily.

The latest update, version 1.5 is now live, and you can grab it from here.
