Following the recent new look and feel of this Slack workspace, I'm getting unwanted notifications whenever someone replies to a thread I'm following. This didn't happen before. I've got my Slack app set up to notify me only on direct mentions/messages. I suspect what is happening now is this new "Activity" button sends me direct messages about new replies to threads, and the app is treating this as a direct message and hence notifying me. Does anyone know how to turn this off?

I've always been notified when someone answers to a thread I'm following, and I seem to have the same settings as you 🤔
I often use this contextual button to stop being notified about messages in a specific thread

You're right - I used to get notified (and still do in other workspaces) when someone replies to a followed thread, but the Slack icon has a blue dot on it. But now, on Kotlin Slack only, the icon has a red dot on it. And a red dot means direct mentions. It means someone is waiting for me to answer. I have to drop everything. Which shouldn't be the case when someone replies to a thread that I find interesting to follow but in which I'm not active.
