Twitter app now getting a new update with the group messaging feature

The Twitter app on Android is now getting an update which is bringing the group messaging feature to mobile devices. The update also introduces the ability to upload videos directly through the app.

Interestingly, the group chat feature doesn’t require all the contacts to follow each other. So you will be able to converse with everybody on the group if you’re simply added by another user. Obviously, there will also a setting available to opt out of a group chat, so you can easily remove yourself from the conversation if it doesn’t interest you.

The video upload feature works just as advertised and requires users to simply shoot a video and upload it onto Twitter’s servers. You can only add videos of 30 seconds in length though, so users can’t exactly share all forms of videos. It’s sort of like Twitter’s take on Vine but with the ability to share longer videos. Given that Vine is owned by Twitter, it was only a matter of time before the feature made its way to the app.

Twitter will introduce this feature on both the Android and iOS variants of the app with an update over the coming days.
