Material Design comes to Plume in latest Beta update

Plume, the veteran third party Twitter client, is getting a taste of Material Design in the Beta channel today.

Ever since its debut, Plume has done a great job of standing out when compared to many other Twitter clients out there. It’s always been one of the speedier, better-looking clients, and it’s been around for years. If you’re in the Plume Beta community, good news! The Twitter client is getting a taste of Material Design with the newest update.

The overall look of the app isn’t changing all too much. We still have the same general layout and the same pullout menu, but everything just feels different thanks to Material Design tweaks. The colors are more flat throughout the app, and they’ve added the familiar floating compose button to the bottom-right. The pullout menu looks more polished and flat, and has the addition of green unread count numbers.

Since the Material Design update is only in the Beta channel for now, you’re going to have to take a few extra steps to get it. First, join this Google+ community, then head to this page and click “become a tester.” You can then download the app from the Play Store. If the Material Design enhancements aren’t showing up right away, wait a few minutes then go to the Play Store to collect your update.

We can’t say that this visual update was much needed as the app already looked pretty great, but we’d still take Material Design over anything else, any day. Plume continues to provide updates just as quickly as every other app out there, and that’s rare for a veteran Twitter client. Which Twitter client are you using? Is Plume still your go-to?
