Twitter launched a redesigned application for Android users, which aligns with Google’s Material design. In the process, Twitter included three changes that it said will make its app easier to use.

First, the app now has a tab-based menu at the top of the screen, which allows users to quickly move between their home timelines, notifications, direct messages and more.

Next, users have access to a navigation menu that slides out from the side of the screen, which allows them to access their profiles, highlights, lists, the connect tab and their settings.

Finally, the “new tweet” button has been turned into a floating button in the corner of the screen, so users can quickly send a new tweet whenever they’d like.

This updated Twitter experience is now rolling out to Android users around the world.
