    Twitter tests full-size images previews in your prey on Android and iOS

    The next time you’re browsing through your Twitter timeline on your phone, you might notice a little but impactful change to the way the ongoing service handles images. With a little subset of Android and iOS users, Has started testing full-sized picture previews twitter, allowing users to see timeline images in their original aspect ratio.

    Prior to starting today’s test, Twitter cropped all non-16:9 images to keep uniformity on your own timeline. Provided a tweet only includes one image and it’s in a comparatively standard aspect ratio, the change is likely to make it so you don’t have to tap on an image to see it in its entirety. In theory, that should make the experience of browsing through your timeline more streamlined.

    Additionally, the company announced that it’s also testing a feature that allows people to upload 4K-quality images from their iPhone or Android device. In the “Data usage” section of the settings menu, you’ll see a toggle to enable high-quality image uploads.

    It may look just like a small thing for Twitter to improve how it displays images, but it’s a significant one all the same. Over the full years, there were a complete large amount of complaints about how exactly the service handles images. Those found a head this past year when people discovered that Twitter’s image-cropping algorithm was concentrating on white faces over black ones. “With this particular test, hopefully to understand if this new approach is way better and what changes we have to make to supply a ‘what you see is everything you get’ experience for tweets with images,” said Twitter Chief Design Officer Dantley Davis of the test.

    Twitter hasn’t said once the cropping change will make its solution to all users. Much like any test, the ongoing company could opt to keep things the direction they are.
