Twitter for Android: Current Alpha supports app shortcuts round icons




Twitter logo One of the numerous new features of Android 7.1 are the app shortcuts, which let you take advantage of the most popular features of an app right from your home screen. So well (hopefully) soon in the final version of Twitter for Android. Because at least in its current alpha version these shortcuts were sighted together with some further nougat features. In addition, this version now also offers a new round icon, so that the whole optically adjusts to the new layout of the pixel launcher. However, not all devices supported by 7.1 (eg Nexus 5X and 6P) seem to display the round icons. However, various launcher could possibly use this already.


The implemented shortcuts allow direct access to new direct messages, create new tweet and search the Twitter to. The Alpha now officially supports the multi-window mode of nougat.

Who already is part of the alpha program of Twitter, should have already received the new update. The miners of Androidpolice have however for you 32-bit and the 64-bit put versions of APK available. The alpha permanently displays a small beetle icon, which is part of the Twitter bug report function, at the top of the notification bar.
