Twitter for Android is getting a nice little update today that brings a few new features. The updated app includes new profiles with header photos, photo streams through Events and Profiles, and pinch-to-zoom on photos. Other features include: improved search suggestions and other enhancements and fixes.
Twitter explained two of the biggest new features, header photos and photo streams, in a post on the Twitter blog:
- New profiles now feature header photos so you can express who you are more meaningfully on Twitter. Upload an image from your mobile device and see the same beautiful profile design on your phone, tablet or computer. Read more about the new profiles.
- Photo streams for profiles display the images people have shared on Twitter. Whenever you see a photo stream, swipe left or right through the thumbnails or tap to view photos in fullscreen mode. Android users can also get closer to photos with pinch-to-zoom.
The updated app is available on Google Play now.
