New Update For Twitter PWA Implements New Layout To More Users

For the ill-informed, not so long ago Twitter announced that they were replacing their neglected Windows app with a progressive web app version. Ever since then, Twitter has put a lot of attention on the app, delivering regular updates ever since its release.   HTNovo has been giving weekly updates for the app and they have just released their update for this week.

Late March Update

In the 12 March Update, Twitter had changed up their main navigation menu on their PWA app. The home, explore, notifications, and direct messages tabs all appeared on the left side-bar of the app. Previously, these were located on the top portion of the app. In today’s update, Twitter confirmed that they were gradually implementing this change with only a select number of users actually receiving the new layout design.  As Twitter states in their changelog, “Windows: some users may see a new design that we are testing.” Moreover, Twitter also announced that they were adding a “skiplink” button, which would when pressed, ” jump to the main content and to the sidebar from the beginning of the page.” Twitter also added an option that would enable users to delete all bookmarks at once. Other than that, the update only contained implementation of minor features and consisted mostly of bug fixes.

It is also worth noting that Twitter PWA’s version is always version 6.1.4, even after an update. The app is updated through server updates. Download Twitter PWA for Windows 10 here
