Last month, Slack had made a new marketing push that included an updated logo. The multicolor hashtag logo of yore has been replaced by something that more closely resembles a pinwheel, while retaining the basic color palette. Starting today, Slask said, you may notice your Slack mobile app icon change from purple to white. This should make it a little easier to see on your device.
Does Slack Now Looks Like Google or Apple Photos?
Slack says the move is designed to make it easier to spot the Slack app. But it seems not convincing since many people shared their dissatisfaction via Twitter.
Is White Background Better Than Purple?
Sure choosing white as app icon background is somewhat more attracting and comfortable on mobile devices, but before the new logo goes viral, Sean Hollister, senior design and news editor at The Verge, starts missing the purple.
Is New Logo Better Than Old?
Slack has developed different versions of the logo to compensate for different purposes. But that meant that every app button looked different, and each one in turn was different from the logo. That's why the company needed to change the logo since the old one was extremely problematic.
