On May 1st, 2019 at 3:51PM PDT an update was released which caused the Quick Switcher and other dialogue boxes with "Autocomplete" functionality to fail for some users. After identifying the error, a fix was released and by 5:29PM PDT and all functionality was returned to normal. Users may need to reload Slack by pressing "command" (⌘) + R on Mac, or "ctrl" + R on Windows/Linux for the fix to take effect.

We come bearing good news! Everyone should be able to use search and the Quick Switcher once more. We would advise refreshing the app with cmd or ctrl and R before giving search a try. If you're running into any trouble after giving that a go please let us know at email@example.com. So sorry for all that hassle.

On May 1st 2019 at 8:58 p.m PT, we received reports that some customers in the UAE were unable to connect to Slack. We investigated and found that a particular ISP was experiencing DNS issues, and this in turn was preventing connections to Slack. We continued to monitor the situation and by 11:58 p.m. PT all connections were re-established.
