Twitter for Android has just been upgraded in the Google Play Store with a couple of new features worth paying attention to. The biggest change will be in the compose window. Things look a little bit tighter and easier on the eyes, but colors, fonts, and arrangement of elements aren’t the only things to see here.

Twitter has implemented a new camera roll view that’ll allow you to see your images within the context of the compose window when you want to upload an image with your post. Heading to the gallery app to make this selection wasn’t cumbersome or anything, but this is a great way to quickly access and post your photos without having to fumble around in a different app. You’ll also get to preview how your post will look once it goes live.

The app also features richer notifications which will include profile photos of the person interacting with you, as well as information on the type of interaction (whether it’s a retweet, a mention, a direct message, and more). To top that off, folks will now get notified whenever their friends join Twitter. Other enhancements and bug fixes have been applied, as well, so download the app and take a look for yourself. You can find Twitter for Android in the Google Play Store.
