Android users, listen up!

· Jennifer P · 2 min to read

It's time to come clean. We've been working on a secret project for a while now, and we're finally ready to share it with you. We're excited to announce that we're launching a mobile app for Android users!

Current state of Android

For years now, our Android app has simply been a TWA wrapper around the web version of Revolt. While this was a good start, it had its limitations.

For instance, it depended on your current default browser, so we couldn't control all of the experience. Some Firefox users even reported seeing a navigation bar, which we absolutely want to avoid! This approach also limited us to the features that are available to a web app. We couldn't use any native features, such as push notifications, and we couldn't use any of the native UI elements.

All-in-all, it was a subpar experience, and we wanted to improve it. So we did.

Introducing: Revolt on Android

A year of hard work in the making, here it is: Revolt on Android. It's a native app, built from the ground up in Kotlin, with all the features you know and love from the web version. It's fast, it's smooth, and it's beautiful.

Three screenshots of the app next to each other.

When can I get it?

It's still cooking in the oven, but we're planning to release it in the coming months. We'll be releasing it as a beta first, so you'll be able to try it out before it's released to the public.

What about iOS?

There's not much to say about this yet, but we're working on it. We'll share more info when we have it!

Where can I get more info?

I'll be posting more updates, infos and builds on Jenvolt, so make sure to join if you want to stay up-to-date with everything related to Revolt on Android.

With that being said, I hope you're as excited as we all are. See you on Revolt!
