Probably not an excuse to slack off at work, though It's just about the end of the workday for some of us, but if you're having trouble with staying signed in on your company's Slack workspace from a phone, you aren't alone. In fact, some of us here at Android Police are running into the same issue. Thankfully, Slack is aware of the issue and currently investigating the cause. (You still probably have to finish your work today, though.) According to Slack's status dashboard and related incident report, the company first expressed awareness of the issue at 3:58 PM, but anecdotally, we've been ..read more

These emails above and below are legit; you're not being phished.  Read More That Slack email you ju ..read more

World peace left for version 2 Many Android fans believe in a sort of holy grail: That iMessage can somehow be brought to Android. Almost everything else when moving from iOS to Android has a workaround, an app, or some way to accommodate it, though iMessage remains an Apple-controlled platform exclusive with a dominating presence in the US market. But a new app formally launching today called Beeper aims to change that, delivering not just iMessage for Android, but a single unified messaging app for all your other services, too, like Telegram, Slack, Signal, Twitter DMs, Discord, Hangouts, a ..read more

Chat and video call even with people who don't have Teams It's been four years since Microsoft introduced Teams, its answer to Slack. The service announced that it would be putting more emphasis on personal usage earlier this year, and  some new features focused on such use cases came to the Android app this summer. Now Microsoft is debuting a slew of new features meant to make managing personal communication easier for those who use Teams, as well as those who don't.

A new navigation bar should make it easier to use with Android 10's gestures Slack is silently testing a new interface in the latest beta version of the app for Android. Though the changelog for the release doesn't mention it, the UI has received a serious overhaul, with an iOS-style bottom navigation bar replacing the old side slide-out one in what the company calls a "simpler, more organized Slack." Left: Old slide-out navigation menu. Right: New bottom navigation menu.  The biggest visual change is the navigation bar, which, unfortunately, isn't pervasive throughout the entire app i ..read more

Google has so far had a love-hate relationship with messaging services, as it threw several of them against the wall, but only a few stuck, and that too not for long. But this didn’t deter the company from renewing its efforts to make another attempt, this time for businesses. A report by The Information suggests that Google could unify its existing communication services into a workplace-oriented app to stand against Slack and Microsoft Teams.

Google Assistant can now read and reply to messages from WhatsApp, Telegram, Slack, others
Android Police | Slack

Google Assistant has always been able to read SMS texts sent to you over the native Messages app or Hangouts. But billions of users around the world rely on other messaging services for their daily communication, and those apps, as far as we know, were off-limits for Assistant's reading ability (some let you send but not read). That's no longer the case now. Previously, if you told Google Assistant "read my messages," it only read SMS texts and skipped over plenty of incoming communication from other apps such as WhatsApp, Telegram, Slack, Discord, GroupMe, and so on.

WHAT'S NEW What’s New • Support for Google Smart Lock has been added, so If memory serves, being forced to sign into Slack for all eternity is one of the circles of Hell in Dante's Inferno.
