Twitter has updated its Progressive Web App (PWA) for Windows 10 with a few new features that should further smooth out the experience. Included with the latest update are enhancements that should speed up your image uploads, along with support for some older devices and screen rotation.
Today in Twitter PWA news:— Charlie Croom (@CharlieCroom) July 17, 2018
- Some changes that should GREATLY speed up image uploads on all devices
- New update to Windows App to allow some older devices and screen rotation
What makes today's update different from the app's previous ones is that it's delivered through the Microsoft Store. Because the app is a PWA, Twitter has mostly been able to implement small changes by updating things on its end, rather than requiring everyone to update via the Store, essentially ensuring everyone would receive the same new features without having to move to a new version.
It appears the reason for the change in delivery is because of the support for older devices and screen rotation. However, it's not exactly clear which older devices are on that list.
In any case, if you haven't received the update already, you can pick up the latest version of the Twitter PWA (6.1.0) from the Microsoft Store now.
