Slack (Beta) has been updated on Windows Phone this evening, finally adding in support for file uploads, along with a few fixes. Here's the full breakdown of what's new from the Slack team, along with the known issues with this build:
- Better handling of connectivity changes and app resuming. We still have work to do so it's faster & more reliable, but this should be an improvement
- Properly notifying the users if authentication settings changed and a re-login in required
- Badges and tiles clear more frequently
- By popular demand, file uploads
- Until full native profile editing is added, a link to the web version of the profile editor has been added to Settings
- Messages cannot be sent while disconnected. In the future we plan to have better handling for queueing messages to be sent, but for now the send button should be disabled when there isn't a connection available.
File uploads may not sound like a big deal at first glance, but the feature is incredibly handy, and its addition bring the Windows Phone app further up to par with its brethren on other platforms. As for what's on the horizon, Slack says that it's working on multi-team support, starring and viewing starred items, and much more.
