Android App channel links not working as intended?

Just curious if this is an issue or it may be something im missing… When i mention a channel in a message on the android app, ie #general, under normal circumstances i would expect clicking on it to bring me to the channel… with the android app this seems to just bring up the channel description with no visible way of opening the channel.

It works as intended with the web browser and windows app. but just doesnt with the android app. this happens with all channels, public or private, to all users regardless of permissions, and to all users regardless of if you are a memeber of the channel or not.

Again this could be just a setting im missing but havent found it yet and i would have thought this should be the default configuration.
