In direct messages or normal channels the new messages are at the bottom (like in WhatsApp).

But in the pseudo channel "threads" it is different. There the messages are at the top.


Is there a good reason for this?

Is there a way to change this?


The sort order in Slack is not configurable.

Normal channels display new messages at the bottom to follow the same format as traditional text message and chat platforms.

The Threads tab displays all of your sub-level conversations in one place. The threads with the most recent updates are displayed at the top of the window to draw the user's attention right away.

The only option to make this more customizable is to add a third-party Slack app.
