Needless to say, we love threads. They’re at the core of what makes Quill, well, Quill. Grouping conversations by topic lets you opt in to the conversations you care most about, while letting the rest pass on by.
After lots of deliberation, iterating, and chatting with the early teams that use Quill to get work done, we’ve rolled out improvements to threads. We want to show you what threads are about, not just the exact messages that make up a thread — and as a bonus, make it clearer which messages belong to which conversation.
As usual, we’re still iterating and improving. Thanks to our beta testers for bearing with our prodding questions, reporting bugs and requesting features! Lots more to come.
Add any phone number, email, or contact to start direct message. Add multiple people to start a group, or add a channel to start a new thread. For phone numbers, we’ll proxy the conversation via SMS, so they can respond seamlessly without downloading Quill.
We’ve revamped how you start new conversations on iOS. It’s mostly behind the scenes improvements to smooth out some tokenization hiccups when you have multiple recipients or when editing recipients.
