Image Aliases

We love sharing gifs on Slack.

With this update, sharing an alias pointing to an image will render it inline.

We've also improved the way we display suggestions. You no longer have to memorise your aliases.

So now when there's no exact match for the given alias, we display similar ones. If you wish to see all the aliases, use /t aliases

💡 Reminder: To resolve an alias on Slack use /t <alias> or @tefter <alias>.

New Firefox Add-on

We published a new version of our Firefox add-on ♥️.

It now supports:

Quick Bookmark Creation

Bookmarking the page you're viewing, no longer takes you to a new tab.
You can click on the Tefter icon and the bookmark is added right away.
