Slack recently added support for Threaded Messages to its service and its Windows Phone app.  The company has now released an update for the Windows Phone beta which brings fixes and improvements to the feature, making it more responsive.

The full changelog reads:

Release notes for Version 2017.209.0.0 (February 09, 2017)


  • Small enhancements to make the threads experience on Windows just a touch more lovely.
  • As you might have expected all along, we now actually update threads reactions and mentions as they come in — and they even work if you tap them! Tada!
  • A few small bugs for users of the mighty Slack Enterprise Grid have been squished.

In case you missed it, here’s a quick recap of Threaded Messages:

Threaded messages on Slack will essentially allow you to clean-up conversations in a channel by replying to a message in a thread rather than just @-mentioning the original message. For example, if one of your team members asks you about a project you are working on, you can simply start a thread for that and continue the discussion there. Additionally, when you send a message on a thread, you can also send that to the channel where the thread was initially started. And if you want to add other members of your team to the thread, you can simple @-mention them.

The update takes the app to version 2016.209.0.0. If you are a Slack user, you can get Slack’s Windows Phone app from the link below.
