App Detection as a status.

Pulse ‘App Detection’ feature will automatically update your status based on the work app you’re currently using.   If one of the work apps below is in focus on your desktop, the app category (e.g. ‘Designing’) is shown in your Slack status. See our list of the current supported Pulse categories below.


To share more details about the app you’re using, such as the current document title, you need to enable filename sharing.
