Twitter is working on a Snooze feature to pause push notifications in its app

Twitter is working on a ‘snooze’ feature for its Android app, which will allow users to pause notifications for a period of 1, 3 and 12 hours.

The unreleased feature has been discovered by app researcher Jane Manchun Wong, who also mentions that the app code shows that a notification bell icon will be displayed at the top-right corner of the screen in the Notifications tab, besides the ‘settings’ icon.

When the snooze feature is switched on, the notifications will appear in the user’s notification tab.

According to Jane, going by the Twitter app code she looked into, Twitter has recently started working on the snooze feature.

Although there is no certainty if and when this feature will make it to the users of the app, it is a much-needed one, especially for those with high engagement accounts.

Last month, Twitter revamped its web platform and brought five key changes, including side navigation, explore feature, a darker dark mode and more.
