From March 16, 2021 at 10:37 p.m. PDT until March 17, 2021 at 6:32 a.m. PDT, some Mac desktop app users may have experienced search not performing any action when attempting to use the quotation mark modifier.
We traced the problem to a recent update that resolved a previous quoted search issue earlier in the week. We've reverted that update and implemented a fix that resolved both issues.
If you're still affected, please reload Slack with Command + Shift + R as that should resolve the issue for you.

We've resolved the issue, and Mac desktop app users should be able to search using quotation mark modifiers again. If you're still affected, please reload Slack with Command + Shift + R.

Search functionality is currently not working when trying to search in the Slack Mac desktop app using double quotation marks. Search in a web browser is currently working as expected. We're very sorry for the disruption, and we're working to resolve this as fast as we can. Thank you for bearing with us.
