Twitter Has Introduced an Updated Version of Direct Message on Desktop - Visualistan

    Social Items


Twitter has been testing out its new Direct Message Chat Window on desktop for the past few months, and has finally launched it now. This new feature allows users to engage with their messages while staying on the main tweet feed, and not having to leave it.

 

In April, Reverse Engineering expert Jane Manchun Wong had posted screenshots to show that the new DM feature was under testing.

 

There has been an increased usage of Direct Messaging lately on many of the social media platforms, which has apparently led Twitter to update its DM feature and add more options to it.

 

In the new update, users will find a mini picture-in-picture display for the DMs that looks similar to the desktop messaging functionality on Facebook and LinkedIn. The window will expand when you get a new DM, and you can either minimize it or engage with the DMs through the smaller screen.  

 

The update is certainly great, but some Twitter users might find it disappointing as their tweet experience will be interrupted by the new DM window popping up every time a message is received. Unfortunately, there is no option to switch it off and users can only minimize the window. The interruption can be, however, overlooked as it is minimal. Moreover, the update is only going to make the engagement in Direct Messaging easier for most users.
