Twitter for Windows 10 has received a much needed update that brings some missing features to the app including quoted tweets, multiple accounts support, lists and a new ‘happening now’ section for trending stories, which does not exist on other platforms so far.
Twitter had updated its app for Windows 10 right at launch but it came without many features that exist on other platforms. Lists, quotes and other features are easily found on the web, iPhone and Android versions of Twitter so it seemed as if the app was rushed out for Windows 10 launch.
Luckily, Twitter has been pushing out updates to the Windows 10 desktop/tablet app and the latest release, version 4.1, brings features such as quote tweets, lists, multiple accounts and more. Twitter has not provided an official list of changes in the Store.
Here is the complete change log for Twitter app version 4.1 for Windows 10, via Windows Central
- Quote tweets – users can now quote tweets and also view quoted tweets on their timeline
- Multiple accounts support – sign in with multiple accounts and switch between them
- Lists can be browsed (button on user profile page)
- ‘Happening now’ which shows trending tweets. It seems to work like how Twitter’s Discover feature used to work
The new update is available in the Windows Store. You can download it from the below link or just launch the Store app on your Windows 10 PC to update.
