How To Set Up Slack On Mobile

Installing Slack on your mobile device is seamless, ensuring you remain in contact with your team regardless of your location. I recently completed the setup of Slack on my mobile, and I’m eager to share my journey and offer a detailed guide to assist you in beginning.

Step 1: Download Slack

The first step in setting up Slack on your mobile device is to download the app. Head to the App Store (for iOS) or Google Play Store (for Android) and search for “Slack”. Once you find the app, tap on the “Download” or “Install” button to start the download process. It shouldn’t take too long, even on slower internet connections.

Step 2: Open the App and Sign In

After the app is successfully downloaded and installed on your device, locate the Slack icon on your home screen or app drawer and tap on it to open the app. On the welcome screen, you’ll be prompted to sign in or create a new account. If you already have a Slack account, tap on “Sign in” and enter your email address and password. If you don’t have an account, tap on “Create a new account” to get started.

Step 3: Choose a Workspace

Once you’ve signed in or created a new account, you’ll be taken to the workspace selection screen. If you’re joining an existing workspace, tap on “Browse workspaces” and enter the name of the workspace you want to join. If you’re creating a new workspace, tap on “Create a new workspace” and follow the prompts to set it up.

Step 4: Customize Your Notifications

After selecting or creating a workspace, Slack will ask for permission to send you notifications. You can choose to enable or disable notifications for new messages, mentions, and other activity within the app. Personally, I found it helpful to enable notifications for all activity so that I never miss an important message from my team.

Step 5: Explore Slack

Now that you’ve successfully set up Slack on your mobile device, take some time to explore the various features and functionalities of the app. You can join different channels, send direct messages to team members, and even make voice or video calls. Slack offers a lot of customization options, so feel free to personalize your profile and settings to meet your preferences.


Setting up Slack on mobile is a straightforward process that can be done in just a few minutes. By following the steps outlined in this guide, you’ll be able to stay connected with your team and collaborate effectively no matter where you are. So go ahead, download Slack on your mobile device, and experience the convenience of having your work communication at your fingertips.
