Twist for Android Changelog

This changelog includes details for the Android versions of Twist.

Version 192

June 15, 2021

  • ⚙️ Close or reopen a thread to view a delightful new icon. 🤩
  • 🐛 Stop snoozing or end your time off and Twist won’t crash — so you can get back to work without missing a beat.

Version 191

June 8, 2021

  • 🐛 Just a bit of under-the-hood maintenance.

Version 190

June 2, 2021

  • 🐛 Minor improvements and bug fixes to keep Twist as smooth as butter.

Version 189

May 25, 2021

  • 🐛 We’ve tinkered a little to keep things running smoothly. 🏃

Version 188

May 19, 2021

  • 🐛 Just the normal behind-the-scene debugging you’d expect.

Version 187

May 11, 2021

  • 🐛 Post one comment. Think of something else. Post a quick follow-up. That’s possible now that the post button actually shows up.
  • 🐛 Plus, you’ll see your collaborator’s comments when they post them, too. A pesky bug was occasionally preventing thread updates, but no longer.

Version 186

May 4, 2021

  • ⚙️ It’s more intuitive to mention teammates, take photos, and reference other threads and channels thanks to some design fixes and flourishes.
  • ⚙️ Type / in comments and messages to see new quick action choices!

Version 185

April 28, 2021

  • 🐛 You shouldn’t need to have channels for Twist to work — and now there won’t be crashes if you don't. (But creating a channel or two might make communication a bit more organized.)

Version 184

April 20, 2021

  • 🐛 A few bug squishes to make creating app shortcuts smooth sailing.

Version 183

April 13, 2021

  • ⭐️ You can now edit the title of any thread — whether you created it or not. Fixing typos and making threads more searchable is a whole lot easier!
  • ⭐️ Editing the important parts of a channel is now in your power, too. Update the name, color, icon, description, and default groups and participants even if you’re not the channel creator. (You will have to be a member of that channel.)
  • ⭐️ Plus, move threads from channel to channel as you like. You’ll no longer have to be an admin to tidy up your workspace.

P.S. You will have to be a team member (and not a guest) in order to edit thread titles and channel information or move threads around at will. That’s for your team’s security!
