From 3:15 PM PST on November 14, 2023 to around 4:13 PM PST, a small number of customers using the Slack desktop app were unable to connect to Slack. This may have manifested as a "Something's gone awry" error page.
A recent code change inadvertently introduced a logic error that prevented the desktop app from connecting as expected. We reverted this code change as an immediate mitigation step, then rolled out a fix to correct the logic error.
The fix resolved the issue for all affected customers, restoring full access to Slack.

We’ve completed rolling out a fix and Slack is now working as expected for all users. If you’re still encountering any trouble, please reload Slack using Command + Shift + R (Mac) or Ctrl + Shift + R (Windows/Linux).
We’re sorry for the disruption we brought to your day.
4:55 PM PST
We have begun deploying a fix and it's rolling out to everyone gradually.
We appreciate your patience as we roll this out and restore normal service for everyone.

We believe we have identified the cause of this issue and are working on a fix. We'll be back with an update soon.
Please use Slack in a browser window in the meantime if possible.
