Twitter Inc’s New Feature Update That Will Let You Snooze Push Notifications For 12 Hours

Published

A coder has discovered that Twitter Inc is testing a new update feature that will mute all push notifications for a certain period of time. The experimental feature was discovered by Jane Manchun Wong.

Wong found the feature by looking at the code underneath the social network’s Android app. Wong found a built-in bell-shaped snooze button at the top right corner of the notifications tab — tapping it brings up the Snooze Notifications panel that lets you mute push notifications for up to 12 hours. Just tap it again to un-snooze or to change the snooze duration.

According to Wong, the current  ‘Snooze’ feature is shown as a “bell” button on top of the Twitter app’s Notifications tab. By tapping the button, the app will provide a bottom sheet of various length of Snooze durations. During the snooze, you will not receive push notifications from Twitter. The notifications will still appear in your Notifications tab, as indicated. You could always tap the  button to unsnooze or adjust the duration.

Wong had also, previously spotted Twitter tested an option to moderate replies. And this ‘Snooze Notifications’ feature is no exception.
