Communication / productivity tool Slack is starting to blend in with Windows 10 after its latest update. In version 1.2.0, notifications show up in the desktop OS' Action Center, and clicking them links directly to the appropriate conversation in the app. Many Windows applications never updated to take advantage of new features in Windows 8, or even to become fully compatible with how it worked with hardware like touchscreens, so it's encouraging to see some support.

It's not a Windows 10 Universal app yet, but the company has a Windows Phone version in beta, just months after it came out of beta on the desktop. There's also a fresh new icon for Windows 10, and color-coded notification icon in the tray. If you use Slack in the workplace (like we do), it should probably auto-update with the latest features, or you can download it here.
