Slack Chat Platform Gets Custom Status Message Feature

Slack now lets you change your status to a custom message with an emoji

People’s lives at work are more nuanced than simply being “away” or “busy.” To help users in Slack add context around what they’re doing or why they’re not available, your app can write a custom status — a short string of text and an emoji that appears beside someone’s name in Slack — using two new API profile attributes, status_text and status_emoji.
