The official Slack app for Windows Phone is still happening
There's long been an open secret that Slack, the real-time group messaging service, was developing an official app for Windows Phone. We've got a Windows desktop app, but so far nothing official for phones.

A beta is coming and some Slack users are being invited to take part in testing.

Other than that there's no indication on what time frame Slack might be working on, but for anyone who uses it (including the Windows Central team) it's great news.
Thanks to everyone who tipped us!
