Quality of Life Changes πŸ› 

We have made several tweaks to improve your Tribe experience! πŸ™Œ



  • When you make a new tribe, you now receive an email that you can easily forward to others for them to join! πŸ‘«


  • If you record a VM and then close the app before it's finished sending: it will no longer delete the VM. Instead, it will save it and continue the sending process once you have restarted Tribe! 🀩

  • Quitting the app while on a call will no longer cause an error or leave a "frozen image" πŸ₯Ά

  • We fixed an issue on web where users were unable to scroll on certain pages πŸ”¨

  • Pendings for text messages will now clear as intended once you have read them! No undying pendings πŸ§Ÿβ€β™€οΈ
  • Don't know what's up with that VM you sent? You are now able to see the status of your sent VM from your chat feed! You can see if it's uploading, sent or even if it failed to upload for whatever reason πŸ’ͺ

Interact with your team by activating emojis and let everyone know if you have something to say πŸ™‹ or if you agree βœ… with what someone is saying.

Your emojis don't always have to make sense. You can also activate any of your favorite emojis πŸ¦„πŸ™ˆπŸ•Ί and have fun!

Changes to Notifications πŸ”” Some Fixes πŸ”¨




We have changed the way text notifications are cleared from the Pending section!

  • Now they will not clear until interacting with the actual chat pop-up, to prevent losing these chats by accidentally hovering over your contacts πŸŽ‰

  • They will also not be marked as read until you have interacted with the chat pop-up itself 😁

Receiving Intercom messages (from the Help chat) will no longer take over.

  • Receiving an intercom message will make the Intercom chat pop-up like before, but it will no longer be focused on by the system.
  • This means that if you are writing a message or working on something important, you will no longer have to worry about the Help chat taking over πŸ•Ί

Other Changes:



  • We have improved the structure and functionality of our Universal links!
  • We have added an extra layer of checking whenever you are about to close a general VM without sharing πŸ™Œ


  • We fixed an issue where users wouldn't show as "Away" when going offline πŸ›
