The Google-approved aesthetic makes for a few functional differences:
- The tab bar has been moved from the bottom to the top, and you can now simply swipe between your Timeline, notifications, direct messages, and moments.
- There is a floating action button for composing new tweets. The single button can be used for composing different types of tweets – such as GIFs or videos – from a single spot
- You can swipe from the left to go straight to your profile, settings, contacts and more.
The update has been rolled out globally on June 8th, 2016.
