Drag, drop, and share your files

Not just your messages, but all your files, images, PDFs, documents, and spreadsheets can be dropped right into Slack and shared with anyone you want. Add comments, star for later reference, and it’s all completely searchable.

If you use any services like Google Drive, Dropbox, or Box, just paste the link and that document is immediately in sync and searchable too.

All your tools in one place

Connect all the tools you use to Slack and avoid all that constant switching between apps. Set up your integration so that you get all your notifications directly within Slack—from support requests, code check-ins, and error logs to sales leads—all of them searchable in one central archive.

Search your entire archive

Everything in Slack—messages, notifications, files, and all—is automatically indexed and archived so that you can have it at your fingertips whenever you want. Slack also indexes the content of every file so you can search within PDFs, Word documents, Google docs, and more. With one search box and a set of powerful search operators, you can slice and dice your way to that one message in your communication haystack.

Everywhere you go

With fully native apps for iOS and Android, whatever you do on one device is reflected everywhere. Everything is in sync. We’ll keep your place so you can always pick up wherever you left off.

Customize your notifications whether you’re on your computer or mobile device. Dial them up to be alerted about everything or dial them down to focus on just a few things.

What's New:

  • Rather than reloading the whole app, View > Reload now reloads just your current team. We're pretty sure that's what you meant.
  • What is that beacon of pure white light? Oh! It's the Windows 10 Action Center, with the rubbish–err, notifications–taken out. Whenever you switch channels, we'll dismiss notifications in that channel from the Action Center.
  • Use Help > Report Issue to send feedback or file a bug. It attaches your log files automatically, because who has the time for attachments?
  • So, you want to memorize every hotkey? Of course. Consult our ever-expanding cheatsheet, now available from Help > Keyboard Shortcuts.
