Twitter 6.0 for iOS app icon small

A Twitter update last week was supposed to make the mobile iPhone and iPad app play nice with iOS 9’s new text-based replies that are now available to third-party apps directly from notification banners, except it didn’t.

Tuesday, the micro-blogging startup issued a new version of the iOS client which fixes last week’s botched update.

Now iOS 9 users of Twitter’s mobile app can take advantage of full support for the Quick Reply feature from push notifications, the ability to access muted and blocked accounts in Settings and more.

Quick Reply

Before iOS 9, only Apple’s stock Messages app supported replying to messages directly from push alerts. Thanks to a new API in iOS 9, developers can at last embed a text entry field into their notifications, enabling Quick Reply functionality.

Rather than launch the container app, Quick Reply in third-party apps functions much like in iOS’s stock Messages app. You just pull down on a notification banner to reveal the text field. Simply type your message into the field and press a Send button.

Twitter 6.37 changelog

Starting today, Twitter users on iOS 9 can expect the following when they update to version 6.37:

  • The ability to access muted and blocked accounts in Settings
  • Full support for the quick reply from push notifications

Additionally:

  • Videos in tweet details will autoplay the same way they do in your timeline
  • You’ll have visibility of tweet text during full-screen video playback in someone’s profile
  • Enjoy media swiping capability during full-screen video playback
  • And finally, quoted tweets will appear as an embedded media, reducing character count

  • Might have to ditch Tweetbot due to lack of simple features like quick reply.

    Don’t know when whatsapp will update their app. They are very slow usually.

    telegram added quick reply today but u dont get the swipe banner down, instead u get the reply button which when pressed opens the quick review text field and keyboard, they said there isa bug on ios 9 and this issue will be fixed on ios 9.1, only then will it fully support quick reply like messaging app

    This would be so awesome on Facebook Messenger.

  • I’m pretty sure it’s safe to say that Twitter is far from being a startup and has been for years.

  • Dark theme and muting hashtags would have been a better idea.

    I am waiting for whatsapp for this option
