Twitter’s testing a ‘News Camera’ feature, and it’s a commonplace Snapchat feature

In case you’re on Twitter, you may before long experience a commonplace Snapchat feature.

The social media site website has been developing a “News Camera,” as per code revealed and tweeted by application analyst Jane Manchun Wong. The new camera include clearly will be available by swiping left from the home screen and let you add Snapchat-style inscriptions to photographs, recordings and live broadcasts.

Wong tweeted Thursday that posts made by the News Camera will be called Moments. Twitter expelled its unique Moments feature from its Android and iOS applications in October.

This isn’t the first occasion when we’ve gotten a look at News Camera. Social media consultant Matt Navarra spotted the feature earlier this month and demonstrated how the camera works in a video.

Navarra likewise noted other potential new features like a (darker) dark mode, encrypted direct messages, an automatic night mode and a way to undock the composition button. You might also soon see a redesigned side menu, a way to react with GIFs and some drag-and-drop features for Apple’s iOS.

The pined for edit functionality wasn’t among the potential new features.

“I can confirm that we’re working on an easier way to share thing like images and videos on Twitter. What you’re seeing is in mid-development so it’s tough to comment on what things will look like in the final stage,” a Twitter spokesperson said. “The team is still actively working on what we’ll actually end up shipping.”
