  • Install.
  • Browse to your Slack workspace.
  • Hit refresh.
  • Old UX!

If you're on Chrome, or don't trust some random Extension - run this in your console instead:

localStorage.setItem("localConfig_v2", localStorage.getItem("localConfig_v2").replace(/"is_unified_user_client_enabled":true/g, '"is_unified_user_client_enabled":false'))

If you're on Mac/native client, you can enable Developer Tools and do this too (thanks to /u/guitwo on the /r/Slack Reddit):

  1. Close the Slack app
  2. Open the terminal and run these two commands separately: export SLACK_DEVELOPER_MENU=true open /Applications/
