Nonetheless, it appears the redesign remains to be rolling out, even in case you’ve up to date to the most recent model of the app — myself and one other Verge colleague don’t have it but, for instance.
The brand new look seems to convey the iPhone app in keeping with the Android redesign that rolled out on Might fifth. “Beforehand, it was sophisticated to get to the 4 principal issues individuals do on cell,” Slack mentioned within the App Retailer replace notes. “We’ve mounted this with a brand new nifty navigation bar on the backside of the app containing: a Residence view to your sidebar, DMs, (nonetheless listed most up-to-date first), Mentions (for rapidly catching up), and You (since you’re nice) (and in addition as a result of setting your standing/preferences on cell wanted to be simpler).”

The replace additionally provides a floating compose button in lots of locations all through the app in addition to the flexibility to order your channels within the “Residence” tab, very similar to how one can order your channels in Slack’s latest desktop redesign. You may additionally need to re-adjust a few of your muscle reminiscence when utilizing the app, as a number of the swiping behaviors have modified. “Now, swiping proper will reveal your workspace and preferences, and swiping left will get you again to the final dialog you had been in,” Slack says within the replace notes.
