A couple of of us at The Verge have observed one thing new about Twitter’s iOS app: whenever you pull right down to refresh your feed, you may hear a few new noises. One is just a little windup trill that performs whenever 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 chicken I’ve heard.)
I made a recording so you possibly can hear what I’m listening to. It’s just a little 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 observed it Friday afternoon, and we’ve seen a bunch of tweets concerning the new chirp from Friday as properly. There are additionally a handful of tweets mentioning a chirp over the previous couple of weeks, which might 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 often 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 telephone, simply strive pulling right down to refresh your feed. When you don’t hear it, strive drive closing the Twitter app and opening it once more (that is what labored for me), and be sure you’re on the most recent model of the app. We’re unsure how extensively that is rolled out, so you could not have the sounds simply but even in case you strive these steps.
Now, in case you’ll excuse me, I’m going to refresh the app to listen to the beautiful new sounds once more. And once more. Possibly only one extra time. Final time, I promise…
