There’s no shortage of Twitter apps available on Android, and while some folks like third-party apps like Fenix, plenty of others use the official Twitter app. And starting today, the folks that fall into the latter group will start seeing a new user interface.
Twitter today announced that it’s now rolling out a refreshed version of Twitter for Android that includes a “new look and feel.” The update adds a tab bar at the top of the app that’ll let you quickly jump between your fee, Moments, notifications, and Direct Messages, and there’s a menu that slides out from the side of the screen that’ll give you access to your profile, lists, the Connect tab, and settings.
When it comes time for you to actually post a new tweet, you can use the new Floating Action Button to compose a 140-character message.
This refreshed Twitter app is a nice update and is much more in line with Google’s Material Design guidelines than the previous version of the app was. This should help Twitter feel more at home with Google’s vision of Android, and it’s good to see Twitter adopting Material Design.
If you’d like to give this refreshed Twitter for Android app a try, you can get it from the Play Store right here.
