Slack is quickly taking over messaging for businesses around the world, but its Android application isn’t exactly amazing, especially when it comes to feature support. Thankfully in its latest update, Slack has not only fixed a few outstanding issues, but also added full support for Android Wear.

Just like other messaging apps on the platform, Slack will give you the ability to reply by voice as well as view previous messages within a thread. Pretty simple stuff, but it’s great to finally have this functionality available.

Aside from that, Slack 2.12.0 updates the method by which notifications are handled and also improves the in-app browser for those who use it. There are also a dozen bugs fixes which are listed and detailed on Slack’s official changelog. The update is rolling out now via Google Play.

  • Updated the way notifications are handled and displayed, to make them better.
  • Support for Android Wear (Reply to notifications and view previous messages to a notification by swiping right)
  • When using the in-app browser we’ve added more options to make it easier to share – in Slack, and out.
