Finally, Android users may now modify the navigation bar in the Twitter Blue app. This feature, which was previously exclusive to iOS, now allows Android users on Twitter to remove the Spaces button from the centre of the navigation bar (and, of course, remove some of the other tabs if you want, too).
You may use custom navigation to reduce the number of shown tabs to as low as two or maintain all five that appear by default. This is useful if you’re tired of swiping your finger over the Spaces button simply to get to your DMs and alerts.
The Spaces button was originally tested by Twitter on iOS last year and appeared on Android in May. This seems to encourage more irritated users to subscribe to the $2.99/month Blue plan introduced last year.
However, Blue can’t shield us from all of the features that are clogging up the app. Last week, Twitter made an announcement about adding more information to the banner that displays active Spaces at the top of your timeline.
While there is currently no option to completely disable this banner (neither for free users nor Blue subscribers), it will now display information about the Space’s host, everyone who tweets in the Space, and pertinent Topics.
