On July 26, 2019, at 2:05 p.m. PDT, we received reports that some users were unable to connect to Slack. Upon investigation, we learned that our latest code change was incompatible with the desktop app versions 3.2.0 or older. The result was that users trying to connect to Slack using these older apps were unable to do so. We identified the problem and reverted this code change. The issue was fully resolved by 3.42 p.m. PDT.

We're still trying to pin down the root cause of the desktop app v 3.2.0 and older failing to connect. In the meantime, please update the app to get things running again. Apologies for any disruption to your day.
