Months after its arrival on Windows 10 running PCs, Twitter has now launched its native app for Windows 10 Mobile. The new app is designed using Microsoft’s Universal Windows Platform (UWP) support to enable a unified experience across desktops and mobile devices.
Twitter for Windows 10 Mobile is nowhere similar to its app on Windows Phone 8.x. It’s completely redesigned with features like Moments and enhanced Direct Messages to deliver you a fresh experience on your Windows 10 mobile device. Also, there are options to shoot and edit videos to embed in a tweet as well as to show top tweets without logging in.
“In Twitter for Windows 10 Mobile, we’ve added features that make content discovery, as well as both public and private sharing, more seamless than ever,” Twitter’s technical program manager Jeremy Forrester said in a blog post.
Features like quoting a tweet to add your commentary were initially exclusive to Android and iOS devices. But with the new update, Twitter now has all these tweaks for your Windows 10 device as well.
Apart from detailing new offerings for Windows 10 Mobile, Twitter has also revealed a dark theme for Windows 10 running desktops and tablets. This means that you can now set the iconic dark theme on your computing device that you’d find quite comfortable on your existing Windows Phone running smartphone. You just need to visit ‘Personalization’ option from the settings menu to change the theme.
If you’ve already used Twitter on your Windows 10 desktop or tablet, you won’t notice any major new addition for your Windows 10 smartphone. This is because of the UWP.
Twitter says that 90 percent of the UI and interaction models that are available for large screens can be shared with mobile devices. Thus, there is almost the same experience across a variety of Windows 10 devices.
You can experience the new features on your Windows 10 Mobile device by downloading the updated Twitter app for Windows 10. The app is between 2.53MB and 4.84MB in size.
