Twitter is known to be testing its new features often in different parts of the world and on different platforms. The recent one is the ‘bottom navigation bar’.
The navigation bar is currently active for some users who are using the latest beta (version 7.43). The new bottom bar is identical to the current four tab layout (having ‘home’, ‘search’, ‘notifications’, ‘messages’ tabs). It is same as the previous one (ubiquitous top bar) with no visual difference whatsoever. A blue highlight of the icon notes what tab users are currently viewing, but the app loses the existing blue line indicator.
Most of all, Twitter aims to make navigation easier and more convenient for users. Beta users have already got the update. Above is the screenshot shared by one of the beta users. The navigation bar has not defaulted in the current alpha (version 7.44). It might get updated in the coming weeks.
Twitter is an online news and social networking service. It allows users to post and interact with messages known as “tweets”. Last year Twitter redesigned itself to make its tweets supreme. It also embraced Material and other rounded interface elements. Currently, the micro-blogging service averaged at 330 million monthly active users.
