Twitter’s TweetDeck that was launched in July in Preview mode has been updated with a new playback feature. It allows users to expand and watch video clips from a TweetDeck column while they use the app.

If you choose to play a video clip from a TweetDeck column, it will start playing at the bottom of your window if you scroll past it, hence making it possible for you to watch the video and scroll through the app simultaneously.
The dock screen can be exited and can also be pinned to a different spot on the screen. Moreover, if you switch decks or remove the column that originally had the video, the playback will still continue.
TweetDeck’s overall format has been updated with an improved column creation, ‘Decks’ for building multiple dashboards in the app, updated tweet presentation, list discovery, and DM management among other options.
Twitter has been testing TweetDecks for 6 months now and by looking at the improved version of it, as well as Twitter’s plans to monetize the tool, it seems like the company may decide to launch it to all users anytime soon.
