A number of of us at The Verge have seen one thing new about Twitter’s iOS app: if you pull right down to refresh your feed, you may hear a few new noises. One is a little bit windup trill that performs if you first pull the feed, and after your feed is completed refreshing, you may hear a brief affirmation chirp. (Although the sounds are extra robotic than any real-life chook I’ve heard.)
I made a recording so you can hear what I’m hearing. It’s a little bit totally different from the brief “pop” you may need heard when refreshing earlier than.
We’re not precisely certain when the change kicked in, however we first seen it Friday afternoon, and we’ve seen a bunch of tweets concerning the new chirp from Friday as nicely. There are additionally a handful of tweets mentioning a chirp over the previous couple of weeks, which may imply that Twitter has been rolling it out slowly forward of a much bigger launch.
This seemingly isn’t an iOS-only change. One Verge staffer on Android is sometimes listening to the second new noise I described, and some of the tweets I’ve discovered concerning the chirp have been despatched from Android.
If you wish to hear the noise for your self in your cellphone, simply strive pulling right down to refresh your feed. In case you don’t hear it, strive power closing the Twitter app and opening it once more (that is what labored for me), and ensure you’re on the newest model of the app. We’re undecided how extensively that is rolled out, so chances are you’ll not have the sounds simply but even when you strive these steps.
Now, when you’ll excuse me, I’m going to refresh the app to listen to the stunning new sounds once more. And once more. Possibly only one extra time. Final time, I promise…
