Micro blogging website Twitter has launched its app for Windows 10 smartphones to effectively update its universal Windows app to support desktops and tablets, a media report said.

Twitter for Windows 10 includes almost all the new features the social network has recently implemented, including Moments, group Direct Messages, camera support (shoot, edit, and tweet videos), and quote tweet. You can even check out top tweets, search, check out profiles, and peruse Moments without logging in, the report said.

Twitter for Windows Phone includes a dark theme, which the company says was popular and has thus been included in the updated Windows app, that is available on desktops and tablets as well, not just phones. The app can be downloaded from the Windows Store.

While newly-launched smartphones already have this new app, for existing Windows Phone devices, Microsoft officially plans to roll out Windows 10 Mobile in the first quarter of 2016, venturebeat.com reported on Wednesday.

“When bringing the app to mobile phones we carefully considered each section of Twitter and how the user interaction translates from desktops and tablets,” Twitter product designer Angela Lam said. “We found that 90 percent of the UI (User Interface) and interaction models could be shared from these devices to mobile phones, but there were places where we decided to make adjustments to optimise for each,” Lam added.
