Slack recently added support for Threaded Messages to its service. The company started rolling the feature out to its Windows, Mac, Android, iOS and Web apps earlier this week and it’s now available to all users. The company today released support for Threaded Messages on its Windows Phone app allowing users to try out the new feature on their Windows Phone app.
In case you missed it, here’s a quick recap of Threaded Messages from last week:
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.
At the moment, it doesn’t look like you can create a new thread for any of Slack’s mobile apps but this feature will likely arrive in the near-future. For now, you can reply to a thread, and see all of your threads from the mobile apps — including the Windows Phone. If you are a Slack user, you can get Slack’s Windows Phone app from the link below.
