Twitter for Windows Phone has finally received an update. Twitter has been one of the few apps, like Instagram, who have taken quite a while to roll out an update, causing Windows Phone users to be frustrated. No longer! Grab the updated app from the Windows Phone Store right now.
“Twitter is a free app that lets you connect with people, express yourself, and discover more about all the things you love. See what your favorite celebs and athletes are chatting about. Be the first to hear breaking news. Catch a glimpse behind the scenes at the Oscars, concerts, sporting events, and more. Then join the conversation: Tweet your own text, photos, and video to your followers – and maybe make a few fans along the way. Get inspired. Be social. Even send private messages to friends. All in real time, as big (and little) things happen, from anywhere you happen to be,” the app description reads.
According to Microsoft, these are the new features in the app:
- You can now use Cortana to launch a new Tweet in the Twitter app by saying something like “Cortana, Twitter new Tweet I love Twitter”.
- You can also now share websites from Internet Explorer on your Windows Phone to the Twitter app.
The app does features support for People Hub in Windows Phone, allowing Twitter to be a People Hub option for contacts. No other details have been revealed as to what is new in this update, but we will update this story to reflect the current change log once it becomes available.
