TextNow Android Beta Testers Last 10 Updates

    Howdy, everyone, and welcome to the last day of summer! Soon, pumpkin spices will fill the air, days will become shorter, and I will finally be comfortable when I'm walking outside.

    Tonight, we're skipping ahead to 5.73! It should have been 5.72 because that's how numbers work, but as it turns out something blew up (not literally) in production before that beta even hit the streets. We will speak about it no more.

    Here's what's coming up in 5.73:

    - To help distinguish your group messages, you can now enter a customized name for the group! Group names will only be visible to other TextNow users in the group - people who are not TextNow users wont see any custom names.
    - Fixed a bug that prevented Android Oreo and Pie users from making homepage shortcuts to conversations.
    - Fixed a bug where tablet users weren't having their draft messages displayed correctly.

    And of course, "various performance improvements." The miscellaneous catch- all.

    It'll be hitting the Play Store tonight, free of explosions. Enjoy!

    28 Aug 2018 Google Play Release Update

    Hello, everybody, and welcome to the 5.67 beta!

    Here's what's in store, fixes-wise:

    - Fixed a bug where a spinner could be shown indefinitely when placing a call.
    - Fixed a bug where the message input box could end up at the top of the screen after sending a message.
    - Fixed a bug where the message list wasn't scrolled to the most recent message when a message was sent.

    And, of course, the usual "various performance improvements".

    No new features to talk about this week. The group messaging has been going very well so far, so expect some UI improvements around that in the coming weeks. We're also looking at revamping our regular, non-group messaging as well, but that's still hush-hush so forget I said anything.

    As per usual, the beta will be available in the Play Store a little later tonight. Have a good weekend!
