The famous micro-blogging website, Twitter has finally launched its app for Windows 10 OS. The company has effectively updated its universal Windows app to support not just desktops and tablets, but smartphones as well.
The Windows 10 Twitter apps have variety of features in tow from the Android and iOS apps, including Moments, direct messages for groups, the ability to shoot, edit and post video using the device’s camera; the ability to share and quote a tweet, and the ability to check out Top Tweets without logging in. Users can also utilise Cortana to search Twitter or send a tweet.
The company has also updated the desktop and tablet app to bring a new ‘Dark’ theme. It can be turned on from the Personalization section of the Settings menu.
The new Windows 10 Twitter app can be download from the Windows Store. Unfortunately, there are few compatible mobile devices at the moment, but Microsoft is expected to roll out the Windows 10 Mobile update for eligible older devices this month
“When bringing the app to mobile phones we carefully considered each section of Twitter and how the user interaction translates from desktops and tablets. We found that 90 percent of the UI (User Interface) and interaction models could be shared from these devices to mobile phones, but there were places where we decided to make adjustments to optimise for each. Expect more features and improvements to come on Twitter for Windows in the future. And if you have any thoughts or comments, Tweet using #twitterforwindows. We’re listening!”
